The Wellington Rotary Club’s Thomas M. Wenham Memorial Golf Classic is set to take place Thursday, March 14 at the Wanderers Club in Wellington.

“This event, in conjunction with the Wellington Community Foundation, is named in honor of Thomas M. Wenham, Wellington’s first elected mayor, who passed away in December 2022,” Committee Chair Larry Falk said, noting that Wenham was deeply involved in many charitable community endeavors, including serving as the first chair of the Wellington Community Foundation.

The Wellington Rotary Club has provided community service for more than 40 years. Falk said that supporting the golf tournament will help the club continue providing a broad range of philanthropic projects that serve less-fortunate Wellington residents.

Proceeds from the tournament will support both Wellington Rotary Club projects, as well as projects from the Wellington Community Foundation.

“A portion of the proceeds will go to the Wellington Community Foundation to support their charitable efforts,” Falk said. “The balance of the proceeds will be used by the Wellington Rotary Club to support charitable efforts such as college scholarships, the Wellington Peace Initiative, clothing and supplies for the homeless, dictionaries for third graders, the distribution of clothing for children and our anti-bullying efforts.”

Golf tournament registration starts at 11 a.m. with a 1 p.m. shotgun start, followed by an awards banquet at 5:30 p.m. There is limited availability, and tee times are filling up quickly. The cost for an individual golfer is $350 ($125 for awards banquet only). However, that is not the only way to support the event. Sponsorship packages range from $250 to $10,000. Organizers are also accepting donations of raffle prizes for the banquet.

“You may enter the outing with as many or as few golfers as you wish,” Falk said. “If you are less than four golfers, foursomes will be put together with all the single golfers.”
