The Philadelphia Lacrosse Association is inviting you to participate in the 2022 PLA Golf Classic on Monday, October 17th at White Manor Country Club in Malvern, Pennsylvania. The course is wonderfully classic and scenic and earned rave reviews from our players.

Your participation in this milestone outing will support the PLA’s nonprofit mission, as a chapter of USA Lacrosse, to promote the game of lacrosse in the 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 White Manor featured 132 golfers and 58 corporate and individual sponsors and raised over $32,000. 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 Lacrosse and others).
∙ 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.

At bottom for your reference is more information regarding the event and its festive format. The PLA would welcome you 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 me as soon as possible, but in any event before Wednesday, October 12th. 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.

As in the past, the PLA Golf Classic promises to be a fully subscribed and memorable one. So please come out, catch up with good friends and join the fun, and, at the same time, help make it possible for even more boys and girls in the City and our larger region to discover the joy of America’s native game. Hope to see you there, thanks for your consideration and continuing support.

White Manor, a “must play” venue, features rolling hills, valleys, streams and ponds. Situated in the magnificent Radnor Hunt country in Chester County, ‘The Manor’ is spectacularly scenic and will be alive with dramatic colors. 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 Course Renovation of the Year.
