Return of the Annual OSU Turf Club Fundraiser Golf Tournament
The OSU Turf Club hosted the return of its annual Turfgrass Classic at Stillwater Country Club on October 24th. We had a great turnout, excellent weather, and superintendent Jared Wooten had the course in fantastic shape. Congratulations to our 1st place team of Jacob Gordon, Brady Finton, Keith Callery, and Chad Weinrich (sponsored by Innovative Turf Supply). Runner-up went to the OKGCSA team of Larry Taylor, Ryan Bailey, Brannon Besse, and Joe Thompkins. Closest to the pin contest went to Larry Taylor and longest drive went to Joe Thompkins. Thanks go to the tournament sponsors below. Because of their generous support, the Turf Club was able to raise enough funds to send a team to the national Golf Industry Show Turf Quiz Bowl competition in February of 2017.
