Princess Anne, MD – One of Delmarva’s anticipated yearly events, The Art Shell UMES Celebrity Golf Tournament will not be held this year.
In a statement UMES President Juliette Bell said, “After much consideration, the University has decided the 2016 Art Shell UMES Golf Invitational will not be held this year. Planning this annual golf tournament requires a great deal of time and effort. To ensure we continue to produce an event that represents the proud legacy of its namesake, the University decided the time was right to take a step back and explore ways to enhance the event as a vehicle to raise the profile of the University’s distinctive PGA Golf Management Program.”
The event had been scheduled for June 8 at the Great Hope Golf Course in Westover, MD.
