25th Annual OCC Golf Outing Supports Student Scholarships: Great Course, Great Event Provides Nearly 70 Student Scholarships Each Year

Oakland Community College is hosting its 25th annual “Golf for Scholarships” outing on Friday, August 26 at the beautiful Pine Knob Golf Course. The outing has generated more than $800,000 in 24 years; over 500 students have received scholarships through the program since it started.

“This is an excellent opportunity for networking and to play a friendly game of golf while raising funds for scholarships,” explains OCC Foundation Interim Executive Director Candy Geeter. “In addition to playing on a top course in the community, participants – golfers, guests and sponsors – help students with the support they need to be successful.”

Last year’s event raised more than $35,000 for the Foundation’s Golf for Scholarships endowment fund and OCC awarded nearly 70 scholarships.


The August 26 event lineup is as follows:

8:30 a.m. – Registration and Full Breakfast

10:00 a.m. – Shotgun Start (Scramble format) – Hotdog and chips provided at the turn

3:30 p.m. – Full Dinner (Dinner-only tickets are also available)


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, a customized sponsorship package can be created to meet individual needs. Individual golfers pay $200.

Sponsorships will be accepted at all levels until the day of the outing or until it is sold out.  The deadline to pledge for presenting sponsor is July 8.
