Area residents are invited to enjoy a day of golf and entertainment in support of alumni programs as Owens Community College's Alumni Association presents its Second Annual Golf Classic. The event will occur on Monday, May 24.
Organized by the Owens Alumni Association's Steering Committee, the golf outing will be held at the historic Belmont Country Club in Perrysburg. The event will feature 18-holes of golf, lunch, cocktails/hors d'oeuvres and an awards program. The Golf Classic event sponsor is Sky Bank, while Cooper Tire and Rubber Co. will serve as the cart sponsor.
"Owens Community College's Alumni Association is proud to host a community-wide event in which the proceeds will benefit students pursuing a college education," said Janet Meacham, Owens President of the Alumni Association. "The Golf Classic is a unique opportunity for business and industry, as well as Owens alumni, to provide continued support for higher education, ensuring our students with opportunities for lifelong learning."
Meacham added, "The Northwest Ohio community's initial response toward this year's event has been overwhelming and spots for participating teams are filling up fast. I expect the Golf Classic to once again be a first class event and a fun, filled day of golf, benefiting a worthy cause."

The four-person scramble golf competition will begin with a shotgun start at 1:30 p.m. Lunch will precede the golf from 11:30 a.m. - 1 p.m. The day will conclude with participants reminiscing about their golfing experience over cocktails and hors d'oeuvres at 6 p.m. A short program will occur at this time to recognize the top foursome.
