Every year, on the first Friday in June, members of the Toledo-area community “hit the links” for Lourdes University students. This year’s golf outing was held on Friday, June 1, 2018 at Bedford Hills Golf Club in Temperance, Michigan. The event featured (18) holes of golf played over (3) courses, a continental breakfast, and a luncheon that included an assortment of contest prizes.

On Friday, 107 golfers helped to raise more than $9,500 in support of the student scholarship fund! This event is truly a soaring success due to the generosity of our sponsors and participants.

The award-winning golfers and teams included:

  • Closest to the pin (Buckeye #4): Jim Haudan of Root
  • Closest to the pin (Wolverine #4): JoAnn Gordon of Lourdes University, Rob Shamy of Signature Bank
