Michael Baker Green Wave Golf Classic set for Friday

RUTLAND—To honor the loss of  J. Michael Baker, III, class of 1986, last year the Mount Saint Joseph GreenWave Open was renamed the Michael Baker Green Wave Open.
The Michael Baker Green Wave Golf Classic will be held on Friday, Sept. 23 at the Rutland Country Club with a 9 a.m. start time. Country club members cost $80; non-members cost $100. The format is a five player scramble, which includes one cart per team. Additional carts may be rented for $40.
Rob McCallen, chairman of the tournament, stated, “The outpouring of support and generosity from the Baker family, community businesses, and friends was overwhelming. The 2016 golf tournament eclipsed all previous Green Wave Opens as a fundraiser, but more importantly in the reaffirming just how important MSJ is to each one of us. The Baker family’s selflessness in sharing their son, brother and cousin’s legacy with us during their time of grief is a true testament to the spirit of giving the MSJ experience imparted on us as alumni and friends.”
The Michael Baker Green Wave is integral in supporting MSJ’s mission of educating the whole person by integrating spiritual development, academics, extracurricular activities, and community service into everyday life. MSJ continues a record 98 percent college acceptance and an increased enrollment of 30 percent. MSJ in 2016 is “A Place to Belong” that welcomes all students.
