EREF’s 2020 Fall Classic to continue as in-person, socially distanced networking event
The Environmental Research & Education Foundation (EREF) will hold its 2020 Fall Classic & Networking Event in-person on September 30 to October 1 at the Pinehurst Resort in Pinehurst, NC. The event, one of the few in-person industry events this year, brings the industry back together with the support of GFL Environmental, the event's overall sponsor, as well as over 20 additional sponsors.
All proceeds from the tournament will support EREF's charitable mission to fund and direct scientific research and educational initiatives to establish sustainable waste management practices.
On Wednesday, September 30, the event will begin with an outside (weather permitting) putting contest and networking reception featuring hors d'oeuvres stations and open bars. Following a boxed grab-n'-go-style breakfast, the golf tournament tees off at 8:30 am on October 1. The tournament will conclude with a contactless Awards Luncheon at 2:00 pm.
The format for the tournament will be four-person scramble with a shotgun start. Players on the first and second place teams will receive trophies and a framed team photo. Hole-in-one prizes will be given at all par threes, including the chance to win $50,000 cash. There will also be other prize winning opportunities, including the chance to win a $10,000 putting contest.
