Thomas “Tommy” M. Goff, CSF Class of 2007, passed away suddenly on March 30, 2019. A friend to many on and off of the golf course, this scholarship fund has been established by Tommy’s friends and family to honor his legacy.
Tommy began caddieing at Knollwood Country Club in 1999 at the age of 14. He continued to loop at Knollwood (even until recently) through his time at The Hackley School in Tarrytown, where he played on the varsity golf team and while he was an undergrad at Fordham University. Upon graduation, he joined Hudson Valley Bank and shortly thereafter became a member of Knollwood Country Club. However, it was his life-long dream to become a Yonkers police officer. In 2015, Tommy fulfilled his dream and was a police officer for the City of Yonkers for the past three and a half years until he passed away.
Tommy was a member of the Police Emerald Society, the Friendly Sons of St. Patrick, the International Association of Approved Basketball Officials, and a parishioner of the Monastery Church of the Sacred Heart. He was an active WGACSF Alumnus, having participated in many Alumni Reunion Outings and contributed annually.
The Thomas M. Goff Memorial Scholarship will be awarded for the 2020-21 academic school year to a caddie from Knollwood Country Club, a place that meant so very much to Tommy.
The Tommy Goff Memorial Golf Outing, a golf outing and dinner celebration, will be held at Knollwood Country Club on Tuesday, September 24, 2019. Proceeds from this day, held in Thomas’s memory, will benefit the Thomas M. Goff Memorial Scholarship Fund.
