Registration now open for Hope College Golf Outing

HOLLAND, Mich. – Hope College's annual golf outing, the “Bob DeYoung Hope Classic,” will be held on Monday, June 10, at Ravines Golf Club in Saugatuck.

 A 36-year tradition, the long-running event was renamed in 2000 for Bob DeYoung, who retired in June of that year from serving as  vice president for college advancement.  DeYoung had worked in admissions, student development and advancement for Hope since 1965. He was also instrumental in establishing the golf outing.

The Bob DeYoung Hope Classic  is an 18 hole scramble with foursome play. Sponsored by the Hope College Alumni Association, the event is open to all friends of the college. Players may sign up as singles, in pairs or as part of a foursome. Singles and pairs will be combined into foursomes by the college’s Office of Alumni and Parent Relations.  All foursomes will be placed in one of four divisions based on the team members’ average 18 hole scores.

To accommodate players, there will be two shotgun starts, at 7:45 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. Morning registration begins at 7 a.m. and is $90.  The fee includes a pre-round breakfast and an Arnie’s Cottage Cook Out Lunch at noon.  Registration for the afternoon  begins at 12 p.m. and is $105 per person, including the cookout lunch.

The event is underwritten by PNC, Buiten and Associates, Creative Dining Services, Elzinga & Volkers, GDK Construction, GMB Architecture + Engineering, Hilliard Lyons, Lakewood Construction, Lighthouse Group – Insurance & Title, Owen-Ames-Kimball, and Watkins Ross.  The net proceeds from the sponsorships and entry fees will be applied to the Robert ’56 and Marcia ’55 DeYoung Scholarship Fund at Hope for students pursuing teacher-education studies.

Reservations must be made by Monday, June 3. For additional information or to make a reservation, call the college’s Office of Alumni and Parent Relations at (616) 395-7250.   Additional information is also available online at hope.edu/alumni/golf
