Constellation Senior Players Championship

This year, the Philadelphia Cricket Club will be hosting the Constellation Senior Players Championship.  The event will take place from June 6th to June 12th.  The 4 rounds of championship golf will be played on the Wissahickon course and showcase golfers such as Tom Watson, Bernhard Langer, and John Daly.  The event is going to be broadcast by the Golf Channel.

To help ensure a successful tournament we are asking for volunteers starting June 6th, when the practice rounds begin to June 12th, the final round of the tournament.  If you or anybody else would be interested in volunteering, please click on the link below and fill out the volunteer form.  We will be following up with more information for all the volunteers as the tournament gets closer.

Tee & Green Nursery

This fall we began construction on a very large nursery tee and green on Militia Hill between holes 6 and 8.  The nursery will be primarily used for our season-long divot-plugging efforts, as well as range sod replacement.
