Pawtucket Country Club is ready for JT Classic held on “Caddies Day” July 10

The Jim Tanner Caddy Classic will play the 11th annual Classic Golf Tournament on Monday July 10, 2017 with a 1:30 shotgun. Last year was a very special event with the celebration of Jim Tanner’s induction into the Rhode Island Golf Association’s Hall of Fame. A group at the club dedicated a clock (shown with JT) to honor Jim Tanner for his 6 decades of service to Pawtucket Country Club members and guests.
The tournament started 11 years ago with 24 players. That first year the ex-caddies raised $300 for the Burke Scholarship Fund. This year the Jim Tanner Scholarship will have raised over $80,000 since inception. The Burke Fund www.burkefund.com has provided over 100 scholarships to caddies and workers from Pawtucket Country Club. The Burke Fund was established in 1946 to assist young students that work at RIGA member clubs meet their academic goals.
JT has been serving the members at Pawtucket for over 65 years and he continues to greet everyone that comes to play. JT the Caddy Master is forever linked with Pawtucket CC.
When our friends visit the course this year they will be welcomed by a newly designed bar and function rooms and a clubhouse that is spectacular.
