Summer Camp Golf Classic

The SODE Summer Camp Golf Classic (formerly the SODE Golf Classic) is an annual tournament held at Bidermann Golf Course that not only offers participants the chance to play one of the finest golf courses in the area, but also features the opportunity for each foursome to play several holes with a Special Olympics Delaware golfer – an aspect many of the players say is the tournament highlight!

Bidermann golf course is a private 18-hole golf facility designed by noted golf course architect Dick Wison. Opened in 1965, Bidermann boasts an enjoyable, yet challenging golf course surrounded by scenic beauty and serenity.

Money raised from this tournament allows athletes to attend, free of charge, two summer camps held annually at Camp Barnes, located in Frankford, Del.

Information about the event

The tournament benefits the two annual SODE Summer Camps at Camp Barnes. More than 150 athletes attend the three-day, two-night camps offered in July  and August, and experience all the fun of a summer camp, including canoeing, kayaking, swimming, sports and much, much more.

At the tournament, golfers have the special opportunity to sponsor an individual athlete to attend camp, giving that person a true summer camp experience.

In addition, during the tournament each foursome is afforded the opportunity to play three holes with a Special Olympics golfer. And yes, their shots count ... and are often needed!
