With spring in the air golfers are gearing up for the annual Delaware Highlands Conservancy On the Course for Conservation benefit golf tournament on Monday, May 16 at The Country Club at Woodloch Springs.

The Delaware Highlands Conservancy is a land trust serving Pike and Wayne counties, in PA and Sullivan and Delaware counties, in NY.

The organization’s primary mission is to conserve the forests, farms and waters of the Upper Delaware River region by acquiring conservation easements from willing landowners.

The third annual On the Course for Conservation tournament includes a hearty farm-to-table breakfast and registration at 8:30 a.m, followed by a 10 a.m shotgun start.

To finish a fun-filled day of golf in support of local land protection, a wine and cheese reception and awards ceremony begins at 3 p.m.

As a Conservancy volunteer, I’m proud to extend an invitation to friends and colleagues to join us for a great day at Woodloch Springs,” says Tournament Co-Chair Joe Adams of Dime Bank Wealth Management.

On the Course for Conservation is captain and crew format. Cost is $110 per golfer, which includes breakfast, golf and awards reception.

Conservancy supporters who will not be golfing on May 16 can join in the fun during the reception and awards ceremony. Cost for the reception only is $50 per person.

“Each year On the Course for Conservation gets better and better, and the greens at Woodloch always offer a welcome challenge for golfers,” adds Event Co-Chair Ken Myett, of Pearson Education.
