2009 Evans Scholars Golf Classic – July 13, at Red Run GC

The 20th Evans Scholars Golf Classic will be held Monday July 13, 2008 at Red Run Golf Club in Royal Oak. One of the oldest privately funded charities in the country, the Evans Scholars Foundation provides full college scholarships to deserving caddies throughout the United States.

Rather than the typical scramble format, the Evans Scholars Golf Classic allows each golfer to play his/her own ball and the two best balls from each foursome will count towards the team score on each hole. A handicap system will be in place to insure competitive balance. Additionally, as the Evans Scholars program is designed to benefit caddies, each golfer will have his/her own caddie for their round. Any golfer who would prefer a cart will be accommodated.

Besides the golf, all participants in this first class event will receive a commemorative gift, team photo, locker room access, use of the practice range, lunch, snacks, beer, pop, wine, hors d’oeuvres, and dinner. The dinner program will include a raffle as well as silent and live auction in which golfers can bid on an array of top shelf items including sports memorabilia, tickets, and many other unique and exciting prizes. Tickets for the dinner program are available for non-golfers.

One of the classic golf courses in the Metro Detroit area, Red Run was designed by Willie Park Jr. and opened in 1914. Over the years it has hosted many great golfing events, including the 2007 Michigan Amateur. Known for its pristine conditions and smooth, quick greens, Red Run will give participants in the Evans Scholars Golf Classic a day they won’t soon forget.
