SOCMA’s 12th Annual Chemical Industry Golf Tournament will return to Chester Valley Golf Club, outside of Philadelphia, providing fun and networking while raising money for the American Chemical Society (ACS) Scholars Program. Proceeds from the tournament will help sponsor scholarships for qualified applicants who want to enter the fields of chemistry, biochemistry or chemical engineering and students seeking degrees in chemical technology. Become part of SOCMA tradition - play, network and support a worthy cause!
Thank you Sponsors!

The tournament will be played scramble-style, and will include buffet lunch beforehand, as well as a reception, awards presentation and dinner afterwards. The awards reception will include prizes for the top teams, winners of the closest-to-the-pin and longest drive contests, as well as a raffle. Players will also have a chance to win a brand new car, with a hole-in-one on a specified hole. Don’t miss this opportunity to network with chemical industry decision-makers while having fun, winning great prizes and supporting the future of the industry.
