Holy Cross College to Hold Annual Golf Outing

Holy Cross College to Hold Annual Golf Outing

Arnold Palmer once said, “What other people may find in poetry or art museums, I find in the flight of a good drive.” Well, it may not be an inspiring painting or a glorious piece of writing, but Holy Cross College’s Annual Golf Outing at Blackthorn Golf Club is sure to be a masterpiece.

The 2018 event will be held on Friday, July 13 at Blackthorn Golf Club, a beautiful course located on the west side of South Bend. Situated on 226 acres, Blackthorn offers broad fairways framed by 78 bunkers, while wetlands, ponds, and native prairie grasses lead to subtly contoured and swept-up-tiered bent grass greens. Each of Blackthorn’s holes has a distinct flow and character all its own.

Registration check-in for the golf outing begins at 12:00 p.m., with a 1:00 p.m. shotgun start.

The cost is $100 per individual player, or $400 for a team of four. The price includes green fees, cart, driving range, and lunch. Prizes will be awarded for the first, second, and third place teams.

The outing, which is a major fundraiser for Holy Cross Athletics, subsidizes the college’s end of the year athletic banquet, during which time student athletes are recognized for the time and sacrifice they give to be a scholar athlete.

For more information on participating, or sponsoring a hole or a cart please contact Holy Cross Saints athletics at 574-239-8400 or visit the Holy Cross College website at: Holy Cross Golf Outing. The deadline to register is July 6, 2018.
