Thank you to everyone who participated in the 4th Annual Eric M. Suhl Golf Tournament! Because of YOU the EMSF is proud to be able to donate $90,000 towards Crohn’s & colitis and mental health initiatives. We have some great pictures from the event, which you can find by clicking the link below.

The unique format of our tournament is designed to be enjoyed by golfers of all skill levels and to maximize fun in honor of Eric. We could not accomplish that without the help of our volunteers, sponsors and participants! 

The 5th Annual Eric M. Suhl Golf Tournament will be held on Saturday, May 16, 2020  - stay tuned, more information to come!

    Four-Person Scramble

    Each member of your scramble team will tee off from your starting hole. Choose the best tee shot. Mark the spot of the best tee shot with a golf tee or ball marker. Direct your playing partners to pick up their ball and hit from within one club length of the marked spot (cannot place ball closer to the hole). Continue selecting the best shot until one player hits the ball in the hole for par or better. If your team cannot make par, pick up, record a bogey, and move to the next hole. Tie breakers will be determined by comparing scores on 1st handicap hole through 18th if needed.

    Tournament Contests

    Below are examples of games from previous tournaments:

    • Putting Contest – make a putt, if you can, and win a prize
    • The Big Draw – here is your chance to hit the most unbelievable and incredible shot you’ve probably never attempted before
