Changes for 2016
We are Moving.
After much thought and consideration, we have decided to move the MSU 2016 Saturday Golf Classic from the Detroit Country Club to the Forest Hills Golf Course. The decision was based on:
- The difference in cost, thus allowing for more scholarships
- Consolidating the two sites to one to encourage more golfers to participate
- The wonderful cooperation of the Forest Hills staff
- A 10 a.m. shotgun start at Forest Hills
The 2016 MSU Golf Classic will be the third weekend in June, or one week later than usual. The Forest Hills Golf Course is not available on the second weekend, so the dates for next year will be Friday and Saturday, June 17 and 18, 2015. We are announcing this now so you are able to clear these dates for next year.
Friday, June 17 will still be a four-person scramble with a 10 a.m. shotgun start.
Saturday, June 18 will still be medal play, using the same handicap system as the previous 40 years. This also will have a 10 a.m. shotgun start.
Friday Fund-Raising Event
This event was previously held at 6:30 p.m. It will now be at 3:30 p.m. at Forest Hills Golf Course. This will give the Friday golfers the opportunity to participate in this fun event. Plus, those who play only on Saturday can attend and still have their evening free.
