121 golfers gathered on Monday, June 26 at Shaker Heights Country Club for the Gilmour Academy Golf Classic in memory of Charlie Tremont '70. A beloved alum, parent, teammate and coach, Tremont starred on Gilmour’s varsity football and golf teams and returned to GA to serve as the golf coach for 11 years.
Despite threats of storms in the area, the rain held off until all were off the course and enjoying dinner, a Chinese raffle and awards. Over the past 18 years, the generosity of sponsors and participants has made this event a great success.
Presenting Sponsors for this event were Figgie Capital, The Figgie Foundation and Matthew P. Figgie '84. The event was also sponsored by the Tremont Family and Tucker Ellis LLP along with many local businesses, alumni, families and friends of Gilmour.
The Charlie Tremont Scholarship was established in 2016 and this year’s event raised over $35,000.
Congratulations to Hampus Gustafsson '12, who was named Player of the Week after leading Division I Merrimack to a 6-3 victory over No. 7 Boston College.
