The Champions Golf Tour closed out June with a great time in Park River, N.D., at the Hillcrest Golf Club. The event was originally scheduled for earlier in year, however, late spring flooding forced a new date.

It didn't deter the great support from the UND friends and fans in Park River. Seventeen teams heard from athletics director Brian Faison, talked and golfed with coaches and raised money for impact scholarships.

After the golf tournament, everyone enjoyed a grill-your-own steak dinner and soup/salad buffet. Twenty-five exclusive raffle prizes were also given away.
