The Huntington University men’s basketball team will be trading in their basketball shoes for golf clubs on Saturday, July 27 at their annual golf outing fundraiser.

This year’s outing, which will be hosted at Chestnut Hills Golf Club in Ft. Wayne, Indiana, will mark the program’s 25th such event, one of two fundraisers open to the public the team hosts each year, joining the annual Meet the Team event prior to the season tipping off.

Head coach Ty Platt stated that while the golf outing is indeed a fundraiser, that is not its sole purpose.

“While it is a fundraiser for our program, it also is a great way for a lot of our loyal fans, alumni and community supporters to spend the day with our players and fellowship with each other,” Platt said.

According to Platt, the majority of the 2019–20 roster is expected to attend and play in the golf outing.

Platt added that the annual golf outing fundraiser also gives participants an opportunity to interact with other HU basketball people including coaches and alumni and compete in a golf scramble with various contests around the golf course, including prizes for first, second and third place.

The golf outing is limited to 36 four-person teams and costs $100 per person. The $100 fee covers green fees, a golf cart rental, lunch prior to tee time, an $80 season ticket for all 2019–20 Huntington University men’s basketball home games and door prizes.

Registration will begin at 11:30 a.m. with lunch in the clubhouse to follow at noon. Golfing will commence with a shot-gun start at 1 p.m.

Those interested in participating in the golf outing can sign up through the Huntington University athletic department by visiting huathletics.com/golf-outings or by calling (260) 359-4212 or by contacting Platt directly at (260) 450-7027 or tplatt@huntington.edu.
