Keystone College’s 29th annual Keystone Open Golf Tournament will honor longtime coach, Professor and Athletic Director Michael Mould.
“I’m especially honored to serve as chair for this year’s event,” said Mould. “Keystone has been a huge part of my life for so many years and to have an opportunity to give back this year is even more gratifying.”
Mould served as college athletic director for 28 years.
While at Keystone, he began the men’s soccer program and coached the team for the first three years.
During his time as coach of the Keystone baseball team, Mould led the team to 11 NJCAA Eastern Regional Tournament appearances. He also coached the men’s basketball program from 1962 to 1965, according to the college. Mould was instrumental in developing women’s varsity athletics at Keystone and oversaw the growth of varsity athletic programs from two to 10 sports, among many other honors.
Mould was awarded the 1981 Margaretta Belin Chamberlin Chair Award for Distinguished Faculty Service and served as the chairman of the committee that developed the design of the Gambal Athletic Center, college tennis complex and the Edmunds Softball Field.
He continues to serve the Keystone Athletic Department as a mentor and assists on special projects.
“The Keystone Open is always a meaningful event for the entire college community, especially since it supports our Alumni Association Scholarship,” said Keystone Alumni Association President Don Cadman. “However, this year is even more special because we are honoring Dr. Mike Mould, who for so many years has exemplified the values and mission of Keystone both in the classroom and on the athletic field.”
The tournament, which supports the Keystone College Alumni Association Scholarship and Engagement Fund, is scheduled for Monday, July 1, at Glen Oak Country Club in Clarks Summit.
Golfer registration fee is $200 per person and includes lunch, green fees, cart, refreshments, buffet dinner and prizes.
