Oakland Community College is hosting its 22nd annual “Golf for Scholarships” outing on August 23.

The outing, on the beautiful and historic Pine Knob Golf Course, has generated more than $750,000 and funded more than 420 scholarships for students since it started 21 years ago.

Last year’s event raised more than $43,000 for the "Golf for Scholarships" endowment fund, allowing for nearly 70 scholarships to be awarded. 

The event is a great opportunity to network and play a friendly game of golf while raising money for scholarships.

The day’s schedule includes registration and a continental breakfast at 10 a.m., a shotgun start at 11 a.m. with a box lunch and a dinner at 5 p.m. at the golf course, located at 5580 Waldon Road, Clarkston. The event includes Hole-In-One Prizes, beverages on the course, golf competitions and giveaways.

Event and team sponsorships are available at all levels. In addition to the predetermined sponsorship packages, customized sponsorship packages can be created to meet individual needs.

Sponsorships will be accepted at all levels until the day of the outing or until it is sold out.  A presenting sponsor at the $10,000 level is exclusive and the sponsor’s logo will be imprinted on golfer gifts.  The deadline to pledge for presenting sponsor is July 8.
