MARQUETTE, Mich. – The Wildcat Club’s annual golf outing will take place on Thursday, June 21 at the Marquette Golf and Country Club (Heritage Course). This important fundraiser enables the Wildcat Club to provide supplemental funding to enhance the academic and athletic experience of all the Northern Michigan University student-athletes.
The premier sponsor of the event is the TCF Campus Banking, the cart sponsor is Downtown Eye Care and AT&T is the food and beverage sponsor.
Registration is being accepted for teams and individuals. Individuals will be placed on a team that needs someone. The outing is a great way to renew friendships and meet other supporters of the NMU athletic program. Registration deadline is June 14.
New for 2007 includes a discount for Wildcat Club members, a credit card option to pay and a flighted finish. The flighted finish works this way, if there are 18 teams playing in the outing all teams finish. If the event is a two-flight tournament the top nine teams, based on their finishing scores are Flight A, and teams 10-18 are Flight B. This allows more people a chance to win. There is typically a first, second and third-place team in each flight. The outing will be flighted depending on the number of entries.
Registration options include $90 for Wildcat Club members, $100 for a non-member and $165 for a non-member joining the Wildcat Club (includes golf and a one year entry level membership in the Wildcat Club).
Registration for the outing on the day of the event will take place from 11-12:30 p.m. There will be a shotgun start at 12:30 p.m. The registration fee includes 18 holes of golf, a cart, lunch at the turn, prizes and refreshments on the course. After the outing there will be a reception with hors d’ oeuvres and refreshments, awards will given out, raffles and a short program at the clubhouse.
