Last week I photographed the Julius Erving Golf Classic which took place at the Borgata Hotel, Casino & Spa In Atlantic City, and the Atlantic City Country Club not too far away, on Monday morning for the golf tournament.
The Fifth Annual Julius Erving Golf Classic was held over the weekend September 7-9 at the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa in Atlantic City. On Saturday the Erving Youth Basketball Clinic was held at the state-of-the-art Sixers training complex in Camden, NJ. Youth participants enjoyed an incredible experience with the 76ers dunk team, Q&A session with Dr. J, a gifting from Converse and lunch was provided. On Sunday night, the annual Red Carpet & Pairings Party was held at Premier Nightclub at Borgata.
On the final day, September 9, all golf participants headed to the Atlantic City Country Club to tee-it-up in the Official Julius Erving Golf Classic Tournament. Let’s check out the photos from the golf day. Proceeds from the weekend supported Grab a Ball and Play and The Salvation Army
Reggie Theus reads a bit of history about Dr. J on this signs which were posted at each hole. He’s an American retired basketball player and the former head coach of California State University, Northridge. He formerly served as head coach for the NBA’s Sacramento Kings and New Mexico State University’s men’s basketball team.
“It is such an honor to be able to come here each year for Julius. We started out thinking that we didn’t have much of a chance, but as the round went along, we really made some clutch putts and had great team energy,” said NBA Legend and Philadelphia 76ers Star Gerald Henderson Sr., who’s team won of the 2019 Erving Classic.
