President's Association Golf Classic set for April 20 in Enid

The annual Northwestern Oklahoma State University President’s Association Golf Classic, sponsored by Pioneer Cellular, is scheduled for Saturday, April 20, at Enid’s Pheasant Run Golf Course.

The tournament begins with a shotgun start at 10 a.m.

The event is a benefit for the President’s Association program at Northwestern. Since its inception in 2000, the program has supported the development of the President’s Leadership Class program, sponsored the participation of students in national events and competitions, provided funds for special unmet needs to enhance teaching and learning, and supported special projects to enhance student recruitment and retention.

“We hope our alumni and the businesses from all three of our campus communities will support this event and make plans for a great day of golf and fellowship,” said Dr. Janet Cunningham, university president.

Pioneer Cellular will serve as the title sponsor of the tournament for the first time, continuing its strong support of Northwestern and the President’s Association.

“Pioneer has been actively involved in supporting Northwestern, our students and the Golf Classic,” Cunningham said. “We’re thrilled to have them as corporate partners.”

About 100 golfers are expected to participate in the tournament, which features a four-person scramble format.

Entry fees are $350 per four-person team, and will include green fees, use of a golf cart and lunch. President’s Association members who pledge at the $1,000 or $500 levels will automatically receive up to two complimentary individual entries.

Businesses or groups also may secure Gold Partner Sponsorships that include a four-person team entry and advertising package. Sponsorships of individual holes and tournament prizes also are available.

Entry and sponsorship information is available by contacting Steve Valencia, associate vice president for university relations, at (580) 327-8478 or Entry deadline is Wednesday, April 17.
