RIC Athletics to Host 15th Annual Anchor Club Golf Day – July 13

The Rhode Island College Athletic Department will host the 15th Annual Anchor Club Golf Day on Monday, July 13, at Valley Country Club in Warwick. The Anchor Club Golf Day is a great chance to reunite with old friends, enjoy a round of golf at the exclusive Valley Country Club and support the development of Rhode Island College’s over 300 student-athletes participating in 21 varsity sports. All proceeds go directly towards enhancing programs that impact the day-to-day lives of our student-athletes during their tenure here at Rhode Island College. Your support would truly be impactful as we look to continue our tradition of building champions on and off the court/field. Registration and sponsorships are currently still available. If interested in playing in this year’s event, donating an item for our raffle or taking out a sponsorship, please contact Assistant Athletic Director, Greg O’Connor at (401) 456-8961, or visit the special events page at to fill out your registration form today.
