Cronin’s Golf Resort in Warrensburg — known for its riverside scenic beauty and reasonable rates — is the site of this weekend’s Chris O’Connor Charity Golf Tournament. The friendly competition memorializes a community-minded Bolton man and raises money for the O’Connor children.
A golf tournament memorializing a man with substantial impact in the Bolton community is to be held this weekend.
The Chris O'Connor Charity Golf Tournament is set for Saturday May 4 at Cronin's Golf Resort, 40 Golf Course Road. The action begins at 9 a.m.
The 18 hole competition is a four-golfer scramble, and the event includes lunch, contests, awards, prizes, a silent auction, and raffles. Proceeds benefit the O’Connor children.
O’Connor was very active in the community, sports and his church, according to his friends.
O’Connor graduated from Bolton Central School in 1989. During this era, he began working as a sous chef for the House of Scotts Restaurant, and he continued to work there for about 17 years.
He continued his education at SUNY Potsdam, where he earned a degree in Computer Science and Human Labor Relations, graduating in 1994.
During his tenure in Potsdam, O’Connor was active in the Psi Phi Delta Fraternity, through which he developed enduring friendships. For years since O’Connor’s passing in 2006, Psi Phi Delta has sponsored the golf tournament to benefit his family.
