MSU hosts Friend-raising Golf Tour in area communities

Minot State University alumni and friends are invited to participate in the 12th annual Friend-raising Golf Tour. The summer tour will stop in six cities: Velva on June 6, Burlington on June 13, Minot Air Force Base on June 20, Garrison on July 11, Bottineau on July 18 and Kenmare on Aug. 3. These dates are subject to change.

 “Minot State University’s Alumni Association receives amazing support from the surrounding area in everything it does,” said Janna McKechnie, director of alumni relations and annual giving. “The Friend-raising Golf Tour allows us to visit their communities and thank them for their support.”

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.

The Alumni Association has provided an MSU scholarship for a high school senior from each area. MSU will recognize this scholarship recipient and other area students receiving 2017-18 scholarships at each event.  

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. To register or in case of inclement weather, visit the webpage or call 858-3234 or 1-800-777-0750.
