11th Annual Business Council Member Golf Classic

July 24, 2018

Each year, golfers and baseball fans converge at the beautiful Leatherstocking Golf Course,
The Otesaga Resort Hotel
and the National Baseball Hall of Fame
in Cooperstown, New York.

After a day of golf, competition and camaraderie, relax and network at the veranda reception and awards dinner. Ride the quaint trolley from The Otesaga to the National Baseball Hall of Fame. The Hall of Fame Gallery serves as the centerpiece of the historic museum and the ideal place where excellence is honored - where Hall of Fame Member, Tim Raines Sr. will entertain us at a private dessert reception.

Hall of Famer
Tim Raines Sr.

The Business Council is proud to announce Timothy Raines Sr., “Rock”, as this year’s featured Hall of Famer. Elected into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 2017, he finished his big league career as the most successful base stealer – ranked by percentage – in MLB history.

Born September. 16, 1959 in Sanford, Florida., Raines was selected in the fifth round of the 1977 amateur draft by the Montreal Expos. During his first full season in the big leagues in 1981, he batted .304 with 71 stolen bases in a strike-shortened campaign – electrifying fans with his speed. He finished second in Rookie of the Year voting, 19th in MVP voting and earned his first All-Star selection.

During his 23-year career, Raines recorded 2,605 hits, 980 RBI and a .294 batting average. He hit better than .320 for three in a row (1985-87) and his 808 stolen bases ranks fifth all-time.

Tim Raines finished his big league career with the highest percentage of stolen bases of any player with 400-plus steals.

Sponsorship Opportunities

From tee signs to the Hall of Famer, from carts to ice cream, we have a sponsorship opportunity that will fit your budget and help your organization knock it out of the park. Put your name and logo on the golf carts, scorecards or even the souvenir photo frames. Plus, take advantage of the Bogey-Foursome discount and get a tee sign and flag. The Foursome discount includes lunch, carts, and greens fees, plus dinner and the receptions for all four golfers. The Foursome package is a great way to treat a favorite client or reward a top performer.

Our members come from all across the state and represent all industries. No other organization gives you the opportunity to spend time with the caliber of members as we do. Whether it’s lunch, photos, wine at dinner, or the transportation to the Hall of Fame, your sponsorship has a big impact.
