CAST Special Events

Annual Golf Open

In the traditional hospitable spirit that is uniquely St. Thomas Aquinas, staff, faculty and volunteers greeted 144 golfers at The Oaks Golf Links in Somersworth with welcoming smiles. Registrants included seasoned golfers, amateurs, alumni and our own STA students. Delightfully, and thanks to the generous support of underwriter The Gaffney Group at Morgan Stanley and many local businesses, the tournament offered participants numerous opportunities to win big. Each hole was outfitted with special contests, raffles and prizes which not only helped golfers’ swing but also put a swing in their step.

Each player successfully negotiated the course on the beautiful afternoon, but two father and son duos walked off the green as tournament champions:
James and Michael Kates (’16) and Peter and Eric Keilty (’17). 

Some fun facts about the 2014 Golf Open...
New Venue - The Oaks Golf Links Route 108 in Somersworth. The staff was been very welcoming and supportive of our event. 
New Time - 1:30pm shotgun start. This new start time was embraced by golfers -making this year's Open more of a family affair.
