The Montana State University College of Business annual golf tournament is scheduled for Friday, September 18, 2009 at the Riverside Country Club in Bozeman. The four-member, scramble format tournament is open to all players and will begin with a 12:30 p.m. shotgun start.
Profits from this event will be used to fund College of Business student enhancement programs and scholarships. At the last scholarship banquet in April 2009, a “Friends of the Classic Open Benefit Golf Tournament” scholarship was awarded to business student Jason Heffner.
“The tournament was very successful last year, and we are excited about the positive feedback we have received,” said CoB Director of Development, Jackie Sather. “The success was due largely to the generosity of our sponsors, prize donations and the enthusiasm and spirit of the golfers. We do have a lot of fun at this event!”
Participants may sign up as single players or a team of four. The tournament entry fee is $125 per golfer, which includes lunch and entry prize, two mulligans, a Hole-in-One competition, awards ceremony with tasty hors d’oeuvres, auction, and great team and individual prizes. This tournament does sell out, so early reservations are encouraged.
Continuing the tournament tradition, players on the team with the best gross score will have their names etched in the prestigious traveling crystal trophy and receive the honor of displaying the trophy at their place of business throughout the year. Last year’s winning team, sponsored by Mountain West Bank, was comprised of Paul Pahut (’00), Brent Zanto (’93), Neil Thomas and William Schlaebitz.
For those who wish to make a contribution to the tournament, tee box and other sponsorship options are available. These contributions give participating businesses strong visibility at the event as well as ensure the golf tournament’s success. This year’s main sponsors are Morgan Stanley Smith Barney and Cory Pulfrey.
