24TH ANNUAL FOOTBALL GOLF OUTING TO BE HELD JUNE 9
Four-Person Scramble Moved To FSU's Katke Golf Course This Year
|The Ferris State University football program's annual golf outing will be held on June 9 at the Katke Golf Course on the FSU campus.
The 24th annual Ferris State University Football Golf Outing will be held Saturday, June 9, at FSU's Katke Golf Course in Big Rapids, Mich.
The four-person double shotgun golf scramble, which is sponsored by the FSU Gridiron Club, serves as one of the Ferris State football program’s primary fundraising events.
The cost for this year’s event continues to be $80 per player, which includes golf green fees, power cart, lunch during play, refreshments in the morning and afternoon at the clubhouse, keg beer, soda and bottled water on the course, and a buffet style dinner. Women participants will be allowed to hit from the women's tees. An on-course beverage cart, which will offer alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks, will be available. A great package of team and individual prizes will be awarded.
A new addition to the golf outing will be The Players Cup. The Players Cup is a new division for former Bulldog players and coaches only. Each four-member team must be comprised of former Ferris players and/or coaches only with the winner receiving the traveling trophy along with great prizes and bragging rights for a full year. The FSU football program is also working on developing the membership of the Bulldog Players Association and needs assistance in locating and updating information about former Ferris gridiron players. Please contact Tony Rosso at (231) 591-2858 or via e-mail at email@example.com.
