Scholarship Golf Tournament History

The Scholarship Golf Tournament has grown from a casual golf outing to one of Fisher's premier annual events.

Reverend Charles M. Lavery, C.S.B. was the second president of St. John Fisher College, and under his leadership the campus grew from one building to twelve. Reverend Joseph B. Dorsey served in that time as a professor and second dean of the College. Both were beloved by Fisher students and established scholarships to ensure they impacted students for generations to come. 

In 1985, alumni, staff, and faculty came together for a day of golf on the nine-hold Fisher course to honor Father Lavery's love of golf and raise funds in support of the Lavery Scholarship. Upon Father Dorsey's passing a few years later, they began raising funds in support of his scholarship and the Scholarship Golf Tournament was founded. Oak Hill has been home to the tournament since 2004.

The Scholarship Golf Tournament is held annually in June. In addition to golf, the event includes a silent auction, cocktail hour, and awards dinner.
