The Ed Posh Scholarship Fund was established in honor of Ed Posh, the first head golf professional at the Village Links in Glen Ellyn. Through the years, Ed has created an environment for golfers of all levels to learn and enjoy the game of golf.
The Scholarship Fund raises funds through donations and the annual ED POSH SHOOTOUT GOLF SCRAMBLE TOURNAMENT & DINNER PARTY, to be held next year on Friday July 17th at the Village Links Golf Course. 100% of the net proceeds of this fundraising event go to the scholarship fund. The organizers and members of the board are all local volunteers. Over the years the ED POSH SHOOTOUT has become a premier local fundraising event. Golf, an outstanding dinner, music, dancing, auctions, prizes, along with the exciting SHOOTOUT itself, are among the many attractions of this event.
Please call the Village Links GC
(630-469-8180) to sign up for golf,
dinner or both!
