Golf event raises money for student scholarships

Posted on

More than 120 golfers are scheduled to take part in a charity event that will help fund a student scholarship and the Hospitality and Tourism Management program at Grand Valley State University.

The annual event, coordinated and hosted by HTM students, will take place at noon on Friday, August 13, at The Meadows golf course on the Allendale Campus.

Registration is $75 per person or $280 for four and includes a round of golf, a golf cart and dinner. Registration is available online at htm_dept@gvsu.edu.

“The event provides an excellent learning opportunity for current students and will help fund scholarships for future HTM students,” said Jessica Judson, event coordinator. “Plus, many golfers will walk away with some fantastic prizes.”

Contests include a hole-in-one and shortest drive challenge. Prizes include a lease for a new car. For more information, contact William Burgess at (248) 421-4604 or htm.golf.outing@gmail.com.
