The Dundalk Eagle - - BY THE PEOPLE -

The Arc Bal­ti­more has resched­uled its 26th An­nual Golf Tour­na­ment.

The tour­na­ment – whose pro­ceeds ben­e­fit pro­grams and ser­vices pro­vided by The Arc Bal­ti­more to adults and chil­dren with de­vel­op­men­tal dis­abil­i­ties and their fam­i­lies – will now be held on Tues­day, Sep­tem­ber 29, at The Hil­len­dale Coun­try Club, 13700 Blen­heim Road N. in Phoenix, Mary­land.

The tour­na­ment orig­i­nally was sched­uled to be held in mid-May, but was post­poned due to the coro­n­avirus pan­demic.

“The Golf Tour­na­ment has be­come one of The Arc Bal­ti­more’s big­gest an­nual fund-rais­ers, con­tribut­ing nearly $100,000 each year to­ward pro­grams and ser­vices to sup­port peo­ple with de­vel­op­men­tal dis­abil­i­ties,” says Kath­leen Mc­Nally Durkin, the or­ga­ni­za­tion’s Chief Ex­ec­u­tive Of­fi­cer.

“The gen­eros­ity of our golfers and a host of cor­po­rate spon­sors – in­clud­ing our ti­tle spon­sor, Sci­en­tific Plant Ser­vices – en­able us to help peo­ple with dis­abil­i­ties to live in­de­pen­dently, have mean­ing­ful jobs and friend­ships, and par­tic­i­pate as ac­tive cit­i­zens in the com­mu­nity,” Durkin con­tin­ues.

The Arc Bal­ti­more An­nual Golf Tour­na­ment will fea­ture 18 holes of golf, in­clud­ing sev­eral spe­cial holes and a num­ber of op­por­tu­ni­ties to win in­di­vid­ual prizes, team prizes, and door prizes. Golfers will also be able to have a chance on a great as­sort­ment of items – from golf four­somes to sports mem­o­ra­bilia – as par t of the raf­fle/ auc­tion.

In light of the con­tin­u­ing pan­demic, nu­mer­ous pre­cau­tions are be­ing taken to en­sure golfers have a safe ex­pe­ri­ence. Tee times will be stag­gered in morn­ing and af­ter­noon slots to en­sure easy so­cial dis­tanc­ing, with times start­ing ev­ery ten min­utes at 8:00 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. Plas­tic di­viders will be in­stalled in each golf cart.

In ad­di­tion, grab-and-go break­fast and lunch will re­place the stan­dard con­ti­nen­tal break­fast and lun­cheon pro­grams, and re­fresh­ments will be avail­able at the club­house and on the course.
