Harvey McMullen Open

The Comet Athletic Club hosts the Harvey McMullen Open Golf Tournament annually in July. The four-person scramble is open to all men and women.

Formerly known as the North Valley (Hoople)-Comet Connection, the annual golfing event as re-named in honor of one of its founders, Harvey McMullen of Mayville. Harvey McMullen, a native of Hoople, N.D., and Jerome Berg, both Mayville State University icons and steadfast supporters of the school established the North Valley (Hoople)-Comet Connection Golf Tournament in the early 1990s. The purpose in starting the event remains the same today as it was then: to raise scholarship funds for Mayville State student athletes while having fun with friends from near and far. Over the years, the event has been held at Mayville and at northern Red River Valley golf courses.

Dr. Harvey McMullen begin his 27-year career at Mayville State in 1961 as the dean of men, as well as a teacher and coach. Over the years, he served as dean of men, dean of students and Student Senate advisor. He taught psychology courses, supervised student teachers and held the rank of professor of education. McMullen served as an assistant coach in football, basketball and baseball. He has been an outstanding ambassador for Mayville State, recruiting and helping to retain countless number of students. Mayville State bestowed Dr. McMullen with the title Emeritus Dean of Men, and he was honored with the Mayville State University Distinguished Alumni Award in 2007.
