President's Association Golf Classic set for May 12 in Enid

April 22, 2011

A change in venue and a new title sponsor will be a part of the 12th annual Northwestern Oklahoma State University President’s Association Golf Classic, Thursday, May 12.

After playing for the first 11 years in Woodward, the tournament will move to Pheasant Run Golf Course in Enid.

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.

Holder Drug of Alva will serve as the new title sponsor of the event.

“We are grateful that Holder Drug has chosen to serve as the primary sponsor of the event,” said Dr. Janet Cunningham, university president. “This continues a long tradition of support for the University and its students from Holder Drug.

“We hope our alumni and the businesses in the Enid community will embrace and support this event.”

About 100 golfers are expected to participate in the tournament, which features a four-person scramble format.
Entry fees are $70 per person or $280 per four-person team, and will include green fees, use of a golf cart and a barbeque 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 at (580) 327-8478 or sjvalencia@nwosu.edu. Entry deadline is Monday, May 9.
