Our tradition continues by providing golfers and tennis players a celebratory day on the course and courts! Sponsors are proudly recognized for their ongoing support of the Abilities First community, and don’t forget our unique course specialties. Your day includes an array of food (including a buffet breakfast, courtside snacks, lunch, and food/beverage sampling), and a cocktail awards reception. A silent and live auction, mystery gifts and raffles round out the day’s fun and fundraising opportunities. Reserve your spot now with one of our sponsorships.

All proceeds from the 2023 Golf  & Tennis Classic will benefit the services and programs of Abilities First and the Foundation for Abilities First NY.

The Powelton Club Golf Course

The Powelton Club golf course is presently 6,193 yards in length with a rating of 71.4 and has a slope of 134. Designed by Devereux Emmet in 1923, the Club’s golf course is walkable, and each hole presents a challenge to your game in a different way.  The short par fours offer strategic options that invite birdies but often penalize with bogies. The greens offer a variety of challenges to players. Some are at ground level and flanked by flat bunkers, while other holes are elevated and fiercely guarded by large, deep hazards. The terrain can be severe and water is a factor on 11 out of the 18 holes. A stream crossing the property feeds into four ponds, including the picturesque Par 3 seventh hole. The existing design is known to be both challenging and memorable. It is accentuated by wonderfully quick greens and tight fairways with deep rough and troublesome pin placements.
