Glenville, WV— The 15th Annual Glenville State College Land Resources Charity Golf Tournament will tee off at 1:00 p.m. on Friday, April 26th at the beautiful eighteen hole Bel Meadow Country Club on route 20 in Mount Clare, West Virginia (Harrison County).
The entry fee for the four-person scramble is $80.00 per person or $320 per team. The entry fee includes green fees, cart rental, and a buffet lunch that will be served starting at 12:00 p.m. The first place team wins $400, second place wins $300, and third place wins $200. There will be two ‘hole in one’ prizes: $10,000 cash and a 420 Honda Rancher 4-Wheeler. There will also be a STIHL MS290 Chain Saw for the ‘closest second shot’ as well as other skill prizes.
All proceeds from the tournament benefit the GSC Land Resource Department. The money raised has been used to purchase equipment that the department’s annual operating budget does not allow. All proceeds will be benefiting the GSC Environmental, Forestry, Landman, and Land Surveying programs. The number of students in these programs normally reaches 140 each year. Last year’s event raised $6,013.27 that was utilized to purchase the latest GPS, GIS, and CADD Technologies for the GSC Land Resources Program.
Non-golfers may contribute to the tournament by becoming a hole sponsor. Hole sponsorships are available for $100 each. Sponsors will be prominently advertised at the event.
“The golf tournament is an enjoyable afternoon of fun that supports the education of GSC natural resource management students. These students will support and lead the oil and gas, coal, forestry, surveying, and environmental industries in our state. Please join us,” said Dr. Milan Vavrek, GSC professor of Natural Resource Management and Land Resources Department Chair.
