WMU golf outing Friday, Aug. 17

KALAMAZOO--There are still a few spots available for the Western Michigan University Community Golf Outing organized by the Administrative Professional Association Friday, Aug. 17, at The Prairies, 5303 W. Main St. in Kalamazoo.

Anyone affiliated with the University is encouraged to play in this event. People may register as a single and be matched with someone, or as a double and bring a colleague or guest. Doubles will be matched up with another pair to create a foursome. This gives people the opportunity to meet new colleagues.

Golfers must check in between 2:45 and 3:10 p.m. for this nine-hole event. The shotgun start begins at 3:30 p.m. Golfers of all experience levels are encouraged to participate.

Volunteers are needed to help with logistics, especially check-in, and are encouraged to stay for dinner afterward.

Online registration is required. The cost depends on the registration date:

  • Through Saturday, June 30, $35
  • July 1-31, $38
  • Aug. 1-9, $45

The price includes nine holes with cart, cash bar, gratuity, prizes, a light dinner and refreshments.
