Over $25,000 raised at Crandall University Golf Classic

Posted in on June 15, 2018

The 14th annual Crandall University Golf Classic was held on Thursday, June 14th at Royal Oaks Golf Club. 89 golfers braved the wind and rain to come out in a show of support for Crandall’s Chargers Athletics scholarships, programs, and initiatives. Sadly, the game came to an early end due to weather, but the players remained in good spirits throughout the wind and rain!

At the banquet following the abbreviated tournament, the tournament prize winners were drawn rather than scored – most teams played fewer than nine holes, and many of the scorecards were soggy and illegible – the team from Office Xpress was declared to be the winner!

All told, $25,445 was raised to support Chargers Athletics! These funds will go to the Alumni and Friends Athletics Scholarship Fund that helps provide scholarships for student athletes, and to enhance and grow Crandall’s athletic programs by enabling teams to travel, and to purchase needed sports equipment for Crandall’s facilities.
