Looking 'Fore'ward to Summer Golf Outings
The NMU Golf Course was scheduled to open today. With lingering cool temperatures, it might not feel like golf season at the moment, but activity will soon heat up with two NMU outings—the Football Golf Classic and Blueberry Classic—an NMU league, twilight rates and a junior golf camp. Faculty and staff can also spread out the cost of a membership through payroll deduction.
The annual Football Golf Classic will be held on Friday, June 21. It will help the NMU football purchase or upgrade critical safety gear such as helmets, braces and shoulder pads for Wildcat student athletes. Individual registration is $100. The fee covers 18 holes with a cart, lunch and refreshments at the course and an after-golf buffet dinner/complimentary bar and awards presentation at the Waterfront. The four-person scramble format features challenge holes and will begin with check-in at 10:30 a.m. For more information, visit Football Golf Classic.
The third annual NMU Blueberry Classic, held in conjunction with downtown Marquette’s Blueberry Festival, is scheduled Friday, July 26. The event supports the NMU Student Flexible Aid Fund, a resource for students who experience unexpected financial challenges such as medical expenses, day care and car repairs—things not covered by traditional financial aid. More details will be available soon at Blueberry Classic.
A golf league for NMU employees, retirees, alumni and friends will be held at 5:30 p.m. Thursdays, beginning May 23. The team registration deadline is May 16. The format is a three-person scramble over nine holes. The initial league fee is $25 per person. There is no weekly cost for NMU Golf Course members; non-members pay $15 per week. Cart rentals are available for $7 per rider.
Summer twilight rates of $20 per person allow unlimited holes of golf and the use of a cart on Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights, beginning at 5 p.m. The course will also bring back its junior golf camp. Information and registration will be available at NMU Golf Course.
