Wildcat Golf Day Brochure
EVANSTON, Ill. -- Northwestern will host its fourth-annual Wildcat Golf Day with Luke Donald Monday, Sept. 10, at the Glen View Club in Golf, Ill., to benefit both the NU men's and women's golf programs.
The event includes lunch, a 1:30 p.m. shotgun start, a clinic with Luke Donald, heavy hors d'oeuvres and an auction. Each group will play nine holes with a different Northwestern golfer, switching at the turn. Cost is $750 per person or $3,000 for an entire foursome.
"I am very excited to invite you to join us at the fourth-annual Wildcat Golf Day with Luke Donald at the Glen View Club," said men's head coach and NU Director of Golf Pat Goss. "This will be a wonderful day at an amazing facility hosted by our most famous golf alum, Luke Donald. This will be a memorable event on the golf calendar, so please invite fellow NU fans, clients, golf fans and friends."
Donald will be hosting Wildcat Golf Day mere weeks before competing in the 2012 Ryder Cup at Medinah Country Club in his adopted hometown of Chicago. The European Team veteran is making his fourth appearance in the Ryder Cup, entering this year's event with an 8-2-1 career record -- good for a .773 winning percentage that is the best in the history of the European side.
The Glen View Club is a 6,450-yard, par-72 course that challenges players with its fast, well-bunkered bent greens. Once home to the U.S. Open and U.S. Amateur, the club has a course rating of 70.9 and offers a specialty shot training area and putting green. It hosted the 2002 Windon Memorial, the 2011 Women's Windy City Collegiate and will again host the Windy City in 2012.
In addition to participating in Wildcat Golf Day, several sponsorship opportunities exist for the event. For more information or to access a registration form for Wildcat Golf Day, download the .pdf invitation at the top of this page.
