Muncy Cup charity event to host hole in one contest
MUNCY – The annual Muncy Cup Golf Tournament, sponsored by Muncy Historical Society begins with a shotgun start at 8:30 a.m. June 11 at Wynding Brook Golf Club, Milton.
Now in its 17th year, the event is a major fundraiser for Muncy Historical Society’s community outreach objectives, including its quest to develop a Heritage Park and Nature Trail. Located along the West Branch of the Susquehanna River, the park highlights historical Port Penn, a commercial and residential suburb of the town of Muncy that blossomed out of the West Branch Canal industry of the 1800s.
In return for the registration fee golfers enjoy green fees, a cart, refreshments, lunch, a “goodie” bag, and on-course men’s and women’s “closest to the pin,” “longest drive” and a “hole-in-one” contest. Registration is limited to amateur golfers, 18 years and older.
This all-volunteer, not-for-profit organization encourages and supports a number of educational initiatives including special exhibits and living history programs.
