2nd Annual James "Jake" Hoffman Golf Scholarship Tournament

On Monday, October 13th, 2014 (Columbus Day) at the Brookmeadow Country Club in Canton, MA there will be the 2nd Annual James "Jake" Hoffman Memorial Golf Scholarship Tournament that will take place in memory of Jake Hoffman.

Who He Was- Jake Hoffman, was a Stoughton resident who was set to graduate from UMass Amherst in May 2013 but tragically passed away in an off-campus apartment complex fire the day before classes were to begin at UMass in January 2013. Jake was highly involved in his major, Hospitality and Tourism Management, and was set to complete a rotational internship program at The Country Club in Brookline this summer after becoming involved in the UMass Student Chapter of the Club Managers Association of America and the New England Club Managers Association in recent years.

Other School Involvement- Jake also used his many great hospitality skills to participate in other UMass programs such as the Sports Management student program - Covering the Bases: A Night with the General Managers. On top of this he was vice president of the Jewish Student Union and involved with a large-scale project called MESIBA. 

The Scholarship- Last year we raised over $15,000 for the scholarship and had our first recipient of UMass receive the scholarship. This year we plan on raising even more than that! The proceeds will go into the Jake Hoffman Memorial Scholarship Fund in the Isenberg School of Management on the campus of UMass Amherst to benefit a student with aspirations to complete a degree in hospitality and tourism management with a special interest in club and sport management emphasis.
