The 6th Annual St. Charles Borromeo Classic Presented by JJ White will be held on Monday, September 30, 2019 at Philadelphia Country Club and Gulph Mills Golf Club. The proceeds from this charitable event will go directly to support the formation of our seminarians. This event will feature upscale silent and live auctions, including international vacations and access to some of the best private golf courses in the world. The first five events were extremely successful and raised well over 1.9 million dollars for the St. Charles Seminary!
The Most Reverend Francis P. Kenrick, third Bishop of Philadelphia, founded the Saint Charles Borromeo Seminary in 1832. The initial location of Saint Charles Borromeo Seminary was the home of Bishop Kenrick on Fifth Street in Philadelphia. In 2005, the Anthony Cardinal Bevilacqua Theological Research Center was established at the Ryan Memorial Library. The building was completely renovated in the process. The goal of the St. Charles Borromeo Classic & Auction is to continue the growth of our beloved Seminary and allow future Seminarians to continue their studies to become active members of the priesthood.

Official Rules (Gulph Mills Golf Club and Philadelphia Country Club) Format -"Shamble"-Modified Scramble / 1 BB of 4 Gross & Net
Your team is comprised of four golfers and format is a selected tee ball. Each player hits a tee shot, then team selects the ball to play next. Players then play their own ball, placing the ball within one club length and finish the hole using his or her own ball. One low ball gross and one low net score counts for your team score. In this format you receive 50% of your individual handicap. Teams may not win both gross and net prizes.
If a threesome, one team member may hit an additional tee shot on each hole, but you must alternate. (Your best player cannot hit the extra tee ball on each hole). A blind draw will be added to your team as your 4th. Ties will be determined by USGA match of cards beginning with the back nine, back six, back three holes etc.
EACH TEAM MEMBER'S TEE BALL MUST BE SELECTED ONCE TEES: WHITE (Men) GREEN (Senior 65+) GOLD (Ladies)
BET-A-BIRDIE CONTEST (Sponsored by Morgan Properties) On this very short par 3 hole we have a fun contest where you can win cash right on the spot. There are 3 pins on this green and you can play to any one of them. You can bet from $10-$100 and if you birdie the hole on your own ball, you double your money on the spot. Format on this hole is NOT the "shamble" and you simply play your own ball. Mulligans may not be used on this hole.
PEBBLE BEACH GOLF VACATION CONTEST (Sponsored by Morgan Properties) On this long par five hole you will have the chance to win a $8,000 trip to Pebble Beach California including airfare for two, 2 nights at Pebble Beach Lodge and 3 rounds of golf at Pebble Beach, Spyglass & Spanish Bay. Leave your drivers in the bag and let our RE/MAX World Long Drive Finalist hit a 400+ yard drive and improve your chances to win a trip to Pebble Beach and certainly help out your team score!
HOLE-IN-ONE CONTEST (McMahon Automotive) On this par 3, a hole-in-one wins a 2 year lease of a 2019 Mercedes E300. (Note: Each player gets only one shot to win the Mercedes on the first Hole In One hole they play during their 18 holes)
PRIZES (Sponsored by SEI) There is 1 low gross and 1 net team prizes for men on each of the three different rotations for men and one low net team for women, plus closest to the pin and long drive contests for each rotation.
CADDIES All caddies have been paid a base fee. However a $20 gratuity per player would be appropriate.
