It is approaching rapidly, but it is not too late to enter Mount Mercy Academy’s seventh annual golf tournament! This year the tournament is being held at Springville Country Club. The event, which will take place on Monday, Aug. 16, is held to benefit the Mount Mercy Athletic Department.

The $125 registration fee includes lunch, green fee, cart, happy hour and dinner.  Registration will begin at 10:30 a.m., followed by lunch at 11 a.m. and a noon shotgun start. Happy hour will start at 4:30 p.m. with dinner at 5:30 p.m. Non-golfers may attend happy hour and dinner for $55. There will be number of great raffle items, as well as live auction items.  

Once again highlighting this year’s tournament is the awarding of the fourth annual Hooper Award, named in honor of the late Kathleen A. Suchan Hooper, an alumna of the Class of 1966. Hooper was an avid golfer, a loyal alumna and a generous benefactor of Mount Mercy. The Hooper Award will be given to the top foursome. The winners’ names will be inscribed on a trophy which will be displayed at Mount Mercy.

Reservations and sponsorship opportunities are still available. The tournament is also accepting donations of raffle items. Additional Information is available by emailing or calling 825-8796, ext. 306.
