Event Overview

July 14 & 15, 2013

We are pleased to combine two of our golf events and commemorate the 40th anniversary of the Bruce Baskin Golf Classic and 10th anniversary of the Leo J. Jacob Golf Classic with our long-standing partner and venue – Firestone Country Club. Here is information for each event:

The Bruce Baskin Golf Classic is the longest-standing event for the Northern Ohio Chapter of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation as well as Firestone Country Club. This year’s event returns to the renowned club on Monday, July 15, 2013. It was renamed in 2006 to bear Bruce’s name, an inspiring man who had a profound impact on the tournament and CF Foundation for more than 17 years. The day at Firestone includes a buffet lunch; time at the driving range; a golfer gift; 18-holes of golf with a cart; beverages and snacks throughout the day; and cocktails and dinner in the evening. Golfers play their own ball and are scored on the Callaway system.

Feel free to register for the Baskin Golf Classic on this site or by emailing or calling the chapter office at 216-475-CURE (2873).

The Leo J. Jacob Golf Classic takes place Sunday, July 14, 2013 at Firestone Country Club. This event began as a challenging 54-hole tournament designed to raise funds and awareness about CF. The “CF Open” was renamed in honor of Leo Jacob, a past participant in the event, who lost his battle with CF in May 2004. Throughout his 44-year battle with CF and despite a difficult lung transplant, Leo remained an avid golfer and a strong advocate for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. This golf event is a testament to the courage and extraordinary effort Leo gave during every day of his life. Participants golf 18 holes with a cart and enjoy a casual dinner in the Lodge following play.

This is an invitation only event. For more information about the Jacob Golf Classic, please email or call 216-475-CURE.

Important note on attendance for people with CF and their families:
The health and well-being of people with cystic fibrosis is our top priority. Medical evidence shows that certain bacteria can be passed between individuals who have CF and can lead to worse symptoms and speed decline in lung function. To limit the serious risk of cross-infection between people with CF, only one person with CF may be invited to attend the indoor portion of each CF Foundation-sponsored event.  For the outdoor portion of the event, people with CF should maintain a distance of at least 6 feet from each other.

Please note: People with CF and their families should be aware that individuals with CF might choose to attend Foundation events or meetings without notifying event organizers. We strongly discourage this; however, we cannot guarantee that only one person with CF will be present at any indoor Foundation event. For more information, please call your local chapter.
