Saint George's regrets to announce that the annual Golf Classic scheduled for June 26th has been cancelled. The restrictions on off-campus events during Phase II means the school needs to avoid getting out of compliance with state rules. Everyone who has already paid their entry fee will receive a full refund. Saint George's intends to restart Golf Classic tradition in 2021 on the Friday before Hoopfest. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Athletic Dierctor Ryan Peplinski.
