GLENVILLE, WV— The 16th Annual Glenville State College Land Resources Golf Tournament will be held on Friday, May 2nd at the eighteen-hole Bel Meadow Country Club near Clarksburg. The event will start with a buffet lunch at 11:00 a.m., and participants will tee off at 12:00 p.m.
The entry fee for the four-person scramble is $80 per person or $320 per team. The entry fee includes green fees, cart rental, and lunch. 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 Four-Wheeler. There will also be a STIHL MS290 Chain Saw for the ‘closest second shot’ as well as skill prizes for categories including closest to the pin, log driver champion, longest putt, and longest drive. Non-golfers may also contribute to the tournament by becoming hole sponsors for $100 each.
“The golf tournament is an enjoyable afternoon of fun that contributes to 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.
All proceeds from the tournament benefit the GSC Land Resource Department and its environmental, forestry, landman, and land surveying programs. The money raised will be used to purchase equipment that the department’s annual operating budget does not allow. The number of students in these programs normally reaches 140 each year. Last year’s event raised over $6,000 that was utilized to purchase the latest GPS, GIS, and CADD Technologies for the academic department.
