Mölnlycke Health Care Presents the 13th Annual Mats Wilander Celebrity Tennis/Golf Classic
With the weather in full cooperation, the day got off to a brisk start as golfers and tennis players poured into Westchester Country Club eager to hit the tennis court and golf course.
On the tennis court, Mats Wilander was joined by tennis pros, John McEnroe and Leslie Allen. Jack Waite of Burning Tree Country Club coordinated the day’s tennis activities which kept both pros and amateurs fully engaged and challenged.
The pros match with Mats Wilander and John McEnroe was nothing short of exhilarating.
After a full brunch sponsored by Capstone Partnership and alcohol provided by Skyy Spirits it was time to tee off on the famous and challenging West Course for some of the best 18 holes on the PGA Tour.
Golfers tested their skills at the hole-in-one challenge to win the Masserati Quattroporte provided by Maserati of Manhattan.
The day wrapped up with a cocktail reception, a silent auction, three course dinner and live auction with music by the Stingers.
