The Canterbury Kiely Cup honors our long-time assistant golf professional and caddy master, Michael J. Kiely.
Last year marked Mike's 55th and final year at Canterbury. He followed his life-long passions: respect for the game, young people, faith, and higher education. He also mentored thousands of caddies taught them the game of golf, sportsmanship, and personal responsibility.
Mike made sure deserving caddies who wish to attend college were encouraged to apply for an Evans Scholarship. Established by famed amateur golfer Charles “Chick” Evans Jr, an Evan's Scholarship provides full housing and tuition to those who qualify ... several graduates are Canterbury members today!
Acknowledged by his peers Mike was inducted into the Northern Ohio Golf Association (NOGA) in 2007, and the Ohio Golf Association "Hall of Fame" two summers earlier. Be sure to take a moment and view Mike and his daughter, Colleen's remarks via You Tube (below).
Canterbury is proud and honored to host the Kiely Cup in his name.
