PRESQUE ISLE, MaineJunior Achievement’s annual Aroostook Golf Classic will take place starting at 8 a.m. on Thursday, Aug. 15, at the Presque Isle Country Club.

Teams can check in starting at 8 a.m. There will be a shotgun start at 9 a.m. We will serve a light breakfast at registration and a barbecue lunch on the turn. 

JA will award prizes to the top net and gross teams, as well as the longest drive, closest to the pic, and putting contest winners. The event is sponsored by Dead River Company.

The annual golf outing is one of Junior Achievement of Maine’s most important fundraising events. Sponsor support allows the organization to provide free workforce readiness, entrepreneurship and financial literacy programs to nearly 15,700 students throughout Maine in grades K-12, helping bridge the gap between school and workforce.
