Registrations Being Accepted For Annual Bulldog Football Fundraising Event

Football Golf Outing
Last year's "Players Cup" champions will try to defend their crown at this year's Ferris State Football Golf Outing On June 6 at Meceola Golf Course

Registrations are currently being accepted for the 26th annual Ferris State University Football Golf Outing, which will be held Saturday, June 6, at Meceola Golf Course near Big Rapids, Mich.

The four-person double shotgun golf scramble, which is sponsored by the FSU Gridiron Club, serves as one of the Ferris State football program’s primary fundraising events. The afternoon shotgun start will be held on a first-come, first-serve basis.

The cost for this year’s event is $90 per player, which includes golf green fees, power cart, lunch during play, beer, soda and bottled water on the course, and a buffet style dinner. Women participants will be allowed to hit from the women's tees. A great package of team and individual prizes will be awarded.

For the third consecutive year, the outing will also include The Players Cup. The Players Cup is a division for former Bulldog players and coaches only. Each four-member team must be comprised of former Ferris players and/or coaches only with the winner receiving the traveling trophy along with great prizes and bragging rights for a full year.

For the 11th consecutive year, the “BIG DOG” package will also be available. The "Big Dog" package features 18 holes of golf at the Meceola Golf Course, lunch and social hour followed by an additional 18 holes at prestigious St. Ives Golf Course in Stanwood, Mich. The dinner and social hour will be held back at the Meceola Golf Course. Cost for the “BIG DOG” package is $170 per participant for the 36 holes of golf. A corporate sponsorship which includes a foursome of golf and a hole sponsorship for $815 is also available.

Additionally, this year's outing will feature a family package for anyone who would like to make the event a family weekend getaway. Activities will be planned for the kids to keep them entertained during the afternoon of golf. The Holiday Inn in Big Rapids has also reserved a block of room for both Friday and Saturday (June 5-6) nights at a "Bulldog Package" rate of $75 per night (double occupancy). Reservations must be made by May 15 to guarantee the discounted rates.

Individuals are encouraged to submit their registration forms along with complete payment as soon as possible to guarantee participation in the football golf outing and aid in the planning. Checks may be made payable to Ferris State University Football.

For entry registration forms and additional information about this year's golf outing, please contact assistant coach Allen Curtiss at (231) 250-6141 or via e-mail at curtisa3@ferris.edu. Those participants who don't designate competing in a foursome will be placed in a foursome.
