(Apr 28, 2006) — More than 100 players gathered on the green to participate in the 8th annual Mulligan
Madness Golf Tournament April 21‚ to raise money for Q100 Bert’s Big Adventure and
the KSU Sport Management Majors Club.
The event‚ held at Bentwater Golf Club‚ was coordinated by 32 students currently taking a facilities and events management class.
“Professor Goldfine gave us the date and we took it from there‚ choosing sponsors‚ picking the location and putting everything else together‚” sports management student Zach Powell said. “It went extremely well with 106 of 108 players showing up to play. We raised $10‚100‚ the highest amount generated since the tournament began.”
During the competition‚ golfers vied for the longest drive‚ closest to the pin and a hole−in−one‚ while playing in four−player scramble formats.
“It was a well organized and impressive student event‚” George Olney‚ director of development for athletics‚ said. “The tournament was clearly on the par with many other charity golf tournaments that I’ve played in.”
Bert’s Big Adventure helps children stricken with a chronic or terminal illness to experience a magical weekend at Walt Disney World.
KSU’s Sport Management Majors Club provides students with networking and relationship building opportunities.
