From Press Release

The Philadelphia Lacrosse Association would like to invite you to participate in the 29th Annual PLA Golf Classic on Monday, October 18th at White Manor Country Club in Malvern. The PLA is excited to return to White Manor; the course is wonderfully scenic and earned rave reviews from players in the past.

Your participation will support the PLA’s nonprofit mission, as a chapter of US Lacrosse, to promote the game of lacrosse in Philadelphia and Eastern Pennsylvania, particularly the New Start Program, which provides technical and financial assistance to new lacrosse programs. Last year’s PLA Outing at Whitemarsh featured 108 golfers and 55 corporate and individual sponsors and raised $25,000.

The proceeds from the outing help the PLA to do the following:
∙ Support the PIAA Public Lacrosse League and youth and middle programs in Philadelphia and beyond (including Eyekonz, Harlem, Little Quakers and Black Women in Sport Foundation). ∙ Support the ‘HEADstring Project,’ which refurbishes and/or donates sticks for the benefit of programs in the City and Greater Philadelphia (see; ∙ Organize/underwrite the Eastern PA Lacrosse Hall of Fame Induction Ceremonies and Annual PLA High School Awards Recognition Banquets;
∙ Conduct/sponsor high school and youth coaches’ clinics; and
∙ Promote diversity and inclusion in the sport.

The PLA would welcome your and your company’s participation and sponsorship to help ensure the outing’s success. All sponsors will be recognized prominently in PLA communications.

Please reserve your spot in the outing by completing the attached registration form and returning it to Scott Growney as soon as possible, but in any event before Wednesday, October 13th. If you are not a golfer or cannot attend the golfing activities, you are welcome to attend the cocktail reception and banquet that begins at 5:45 pm. Space in the outing is limited and registrations will be processed on a first come, first served basis.

The course, which has hosted numerous LPGA events, was redesigned and renovated in 2003 by highly rated course architects from Bobby Weed Design (Pointe Vedra Beach, Florida). The redesign re-routed the holes into a more strategic design, while preserving the overall layout, and opened to rave reviews and accolades,
including Golf, Inc.’s U.S. Course Renovation of the Year.
