Robert Posillico Awarded Jeff Guttentag Memorial Scholarship
Despite the golf portion of the event being moved, there was still a celebration at Cold Spring on Monday as Robert Posillico was awarded as the very first recipient of the Jeff Guttentag Memorial Scholarship. Posillico spent five years as a Caddie at Cold Spring and caddied for Jeff many times.
Due to inclement weather, the Jeff Guttentag Memorial Golf outing, originally scheduled for August 9th, has been rescheduled for September 13th at Cold Spring Country Club. The event, the first of its kind, will be held in honor of the late Jeff Guttentag who passed due to COVID-19.
Jeff was a former caddie, golfer, and member of Cold Spring Country Club for much of his life. He was also a two-time Club Champion. The hashtag #Guttstrong was created in honor of his brave fight throughout his hospital stay and 4 weeks on a ventilator. Jeff leaves a legacy of family, friends, golf games and years of dedication to serving Cold Spring as Golf Chair, Vice President, Board Member, and Executive Committee Member.
In his memory, the Jeff Guttentag Memorial Scholarship was created. It will be awarded through the LICSF to a highly accomplished caddie from Cold Spring. The LICSF is proud to add the Jeff Guttentag Memorial Scholarship as a way to continue to give to deserving young men and women on Long Island.
