MSU hosts Friend-raising Golf Tour in area communities

Minot State University alumni and friends are invited to participate in the 10th annual Friend-raising Golf Tour. The summer tour will stop in six cities: Velva on June 9, Rugby on June 18, Stanley on June 23, Bottineau on July 7, Garrison on July 14 and Kenmare on July 30. MSU will recognize area students receiving 2015-16 scholarships at each event. These dates are subject to change.

“Minot State receives amazing support from the surrounding area in everything its students do,” said Janna McKechnie, director of alumni relations and annual giving. “The Friend-raising Golf Tour enables Minot State’s people to be out in the communities to thank them.”

The motto for the tour is “Golf One or Golf Them All.” The format for each tour stop will be a four-person, 9-hole scramble. Registration will begin at 4:30 p.m., with a shotgun start at 5 p.m. A social will immediately follow completion of golf. Non-golfers are welcome to attend.

Golfers are responsible for their own green fees and cart rentals. Meals and refreshments will be provided by the course, and purchase is optional. It is recommended that golfers interested in carts make early reservations because of limited availability.

Prizes and T-shirts will be awarded at each event. The Friend-raising Golf Tour is sponsored by MSU Alumni Association, Advancement Office, Athletic Department and the Marketing Office. Call the MSU Advancement Office with questions or to register at 858-3234 or 701-800-777-0750, ext. 3234, or visit the website,
