2014 USU Alumni Association Golf Tournament 

Get ready! It’s time to start signing up for the 2014 USU Alumni Golf Tournament on September 8th at the Ogden Golf and Country Club.

“I’m really looking forward to the tournament this year. It’s going to be a lot of fun and the proceeds go to student scholarships. There’s nothing better than golfing for a good cause,” said Dave Clark, Associate Vice President of Alumni and Corporate Relations. “And with the generous sponsorship support of so many wonderful businesses, this year’s tournament is sure to be one the best.”

Among those generous corporate sponsors is USU Credit Union, which recently became a division of Goldenwest Credit Union.

"USU Credit Union’s relationship with Utah State University students, faculty and alumni reaches back to the 1950s. We’re excited for this opportunity to sponsor the USU Alumni Golf Tournament, and to associate with alumni members and friends of the University,” said Kerry Wahlen, President and CEO of Goldenwest Credit Union.

Other key sponsors include Acura, Young Automotive Group, Allied Insurance and the Ogden Golf and Country Club.

In addition to raising funds for student scholarships, the Alumni Golf Tournament also provides an opportunity to play with fellow Aggies and win some fantastic prizes along the way. Some of which include:
  •     a one year lease on a 2015 Acura
  •     a trip to St. Andrews, Scotland to participate in the OLD Course Experience
  •     a chance to represent Utah State University at the National Acura College Alumni Team    Championship at Pinehurst, NC. (only available to Best Ball tournament winners)

Who doesn’t want a free golf trip to Scotland?

According to past participant, Martin Reese, the Alumni Tournament not only gives people a chance to play golf on a quality course, but it is often entertaining as well.

“Acura was the primary sponsor and had area dealerships provide a couple of Acura vehicles to be parked on the course.  We were short one player and asked the fellow who drove the car if he wanted to play.  Not sure if he called in sick or what, but he stayed and played with a big grin on his face,” said Reese. 

Spots for the tournament are limited, so don’t miss your chance to sign up. You can do so by following the link below:

Golf legend, Gary Player, once said, “Golf is a puzzle without an answer. I’ve played golf for over 50 years and I still haven’t the slightest idea of how to play.”

Add another piece to your puzzle and help give someone the quality education they deserve at this year’s USU Alumni Golf Tournament.

Good luck and Go Aggies!
