Northern, Northwestern to partner for President's Cup Golf Tournament in Ponca City

Two higher education institutions that frequently partner with each other have joined forces for a joint fundraising golf tournament in Ponca City.

Northern Oklahoma College and Northwestern Oklahoma State University will play host to the President’s Cup Golf Classic, Saturday, June 20, at Lew Wentz Golf Course. Proceeds from the tournament will benefit programs at each school.

“It seemed a natural partnership for us,” said Dr. Janet Cunningham, university president. “Both schools have strong alumni bases in the area and work to provide educational services in Ponca City. We always look for opportunities to work closer with Northern.”

“Northern and Northwestern often collaborate to help the communities and students we serve,” said Dr. Cheryl Evans, Northern president. “We are excited to join together in this tournament which will not only be a fun event, but will also provide much needed support to our institutions.”

The tournament will feature a four-person scramble format with the field limited to 30 teams. Entry fees are $400 per four-person team, and will include green fees, use of a golf cart and lunch. Skills contests with prizes will be part of the tournament. Tee time is at 9 a.m.

The winning team will be awarded the President’s Cup traveling trophy. The team will have possession of the trophy until the next year’s event.

Businesses wishing to show their support for Northwestern and Northern have several opportunities to provide sponsorships.

Entry and sponsorship information is available by contacting Kirby Tickel-Hill at Northern, (580) 628-6789 or, or Steve Valencia at Northwestern, (580) 327-8478 or
