The Northern Illinois golf program and Rich Harvest Farms will be hosting the third annual Harvest Invitational on Monday, October 8, 2012. Held at Rich Harvest Farms in Sugar Grove, Ill., the Harvest Invitational allows NIU alumni, friends, and members of the Chicago community a rare opportunity to test their skills on a world-class course.
Foursomes will compete in a scramble format. The event will begin at 11:30 a.m. with registration, a lunch buffet, and a chance for golfers to take some swings on the practice range. Registrants will hit the course with a shotgun start at 1 p.m., followed by dinner, awards, and silent auction at 6 p.m. For an additional fee, foursomes can play with a current Huskie golfer, who will offer valuable advice on the difficult course. NIU Director of Golf Tom Porten will also be on hand to recap the fall season and offer instructional opportunities. This is also your chance to meet the new women’s coach Kim Kester, who will also be on-site during the event!
All proceeds from the event will directly benefit the NIU golf program. To register, please fill out the attached form or call (815) 753-1923. For more information, contact NIU Associate Athletics Director for External Affairs Shelley Binegar at (815) 753-0800 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
