NORTON, Massachusetts – The Dolly Sullivan Team Best Ball tournament has been officially adjusted on the schedule this year. On Friday, Mass Golf announced that Indian Pond Country Club in Kingston will host the two-day event on August 24-25.
The Dolly Sullivan is one of five women’s tournaments on the Mass Golf schedule. This event features teams of four women from the same golf club playing one 18-hole round of better ball of four format during one of the two days. Each team member plays their own ball, and the low score (gross & net) counts toward the team score.
Registration is open immediately and will close August 6. Each club can enter up to two teams.
Located 30 miles south of Boston, Indian Pond CC lies within a densely forested landscape, offers heavily guarded green complexes, cross bunkering in the fairways, and short walks from the green to the next tee.
“We are thrilled to be hosting the Dolly Sullivan Team Best Ball tournament at this beautiful golf course later this summer,” said Naomi Nesenoff, Mass Golf Manager of Women’s Events & Player Development. “Indian Pond is a fantastic spot for our prestigious, history-rich tournament that we believe all participants will thoroughly enjoy.”
The event also serves as a fundraiser for the WGAM/Dolly Sullivan Junior Scholarship Program – an endowed scholarship that was first established in 1999 to assist female Ouimet scholars who have competed in women’s golf events in Massachusetts. The deadline to apply for this year’s scholarship fund is 5 p.m. July 17. To view the application, CLICK HERE.
The tournament is named after Dolly Sullivan, who coached the Milton Academy golf team for 32 years and was the niece of Francis Ouimet, a Massachusetts Golf Hall of Fame member.
“We’re very appreciative that once again Indian Pond has stepped up to host one of our many events, especially on short notice,” said Jesse Menachem, Mass Golf Executive Director/CEO. “This event continues to support a great cause and is truly a staple on the women’s schedule each and every year. We are fortunate that we could keep it going this year given the circumstances. We appreciate the staff at The International for their initial willingness to serve as host to this event.”
Indian Pond hosted the Dolly Sullivan in 2014 and has hosted at least one Mass Golf event every year since 2013. On June 15, the club also hosted the first Mass Golf Member Day of the year.
“We’re more than happy to host an event for Mass Golf,” said Brian Langevin, Head Golf Professional at Indian Pond. “We hosted the Dolly Sullivan before, and it was good. We had a lot of good feedback, and we’re just happy to grow and promote the game of golf.”
