2013 Thomaston Woods Golf Classic




For the fourth year, the Thomaston Golf Classic is being held at the Golf Club at Stonelick Hills, located on U.S. Route 50 in Clermont County, less than 10 miles from Terrace Park, Ohio. It is one of the premier golf courses in Southwestern Ohio. The course quality and layout, facilities, and professional staff are second to none.

The foursome entry fee for this year’s event is $500 and the individual fee is $150 per person.

At the awards dinner, engraved crystal trophies are presented to each player in the three lowest scoring foursomes, as well as the lowest scoring ladies’ foursome.

This year’s event will have a similar format and contests as in previous years. And the Par 3 Shootout finals again will be from the 18th fairway to the 9th hole, affording everyone a front row seat from the clubhouse patio!

The Thomaston Golf Classic is the sole fund raising event for the Thomaston Woods Scholarship Fund, which provides tuition scholarships for the young motivated residents of the Thomaston Woods affordable townhouse complex in Clermont County. Thanks to your support, 25 scholarships have been granted to students attending UC Clermont and other area institutions. Let’s keep it going for 2013!

Spring is here, so get your foursome assembled and registered, using this registration form. And we’ll see you on Monday, May 20th.

Thank you!
