on the Hill

15th Annual

Golf Classic

Every year on the first Thursday in September, the MMU athletic program hosts the Mount Mercy Golf Classic to raise funds for capital projects that aren’t reflected in the university budget. Now in its 15th year—each of which has been sponsored by the ESCO Group—the 2017 event drew a record 144 participants, raising just over $59,000 for the Mustang Athletic Club.

Thirty-five teams of business supporters, alumni, trustees, and friends enjoyed the day at Hunters Ridge Golf Course, netting much needed funds for Mustang athletics.

Since its inception, the Golf Classic has raised more than $500,000 to fund non-budgeted items for the Mount Mercy athletic program. ■
