GRAND FORKS, N.D. -- The 2017 Champions Golf Tour wrapped up on Monday, making its final stop at the Grand Forks Country Club. Underneath the shadow of the solar eclipse, the tournament was a great ending to a summer full of swinging clubs and impacting student-athletes.
Like the other five stops before it, the golfers and sponsors made the Grand Forks tournament possible, and their continued support of student-athlete scholarships is what makes the Champions Golf Tour so special every summer. Thanks to our local sponsors, The Golf Center and First International Bank & Trust.
UND coaches and athletics staff who participated included Natalie Martinson, Tony Janu, Brad Berry, Dane Jackson, Matt Shaw, Mallory Bernard, Jeff Horner, Brad Davidson and Paul Ralston.
Once again, the North Dakota Champions Club would like to thank everyone who made an impact on the 2017 Champions Golf Tour. Keep your eye out for the 2018 Champions Golf Tour dates that will be announced at the beginning of the new year!
