Danville Country Club


You’re invited to spend a beautiful day at Danville Country Club with your closest golfing buddies and Herb McGuire ’57.
The annual spring golf outing benefits the Praying Colonels Fund, which supports the athletics department’s 23 intercollegiate sports teams and nearly 600 student-athletes.
The event will begin at 9 a.m. with breakfast and registration, followed by the tournament’s shotgun start at 10:30 a.m. The day will conclude with a social hour and an awards ceremony.
Interested participants are encouraged to register a foursome for an entry fee of $800. Individuals can also register for the event for $200, which includes greens fees, cart, breakfast, and lunch on the day of the event. The tournament format will include both the traditional individual stroke play for the “medal” champion and full handicap play for the “net” winners, as well as a four-man scramble with gross and net prizes. Additionally, non-participating contributions, hole sponsorships, and corporate sponsorships are available as well.
Those wishing to participate in the tournament may register online. The form can be scanned and emailed to vickie.glidewell@centre.edu, faxed to 859.238.5507, or mailed to Alumni House, 600 West Walnut St., Danville, KY 40422.
On Sunday evening, anyone interested can gather at Danville Country Club at 6 PM for hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar. Any PCI player that wants to come out on Sunday afternoon for a practice round can contact head golf professional John Mesplay. The rate is $40 for 18 holes and $25 for 9 holes. Please contact John at DCC via phone (859.236.2838) or email (birdymchine@yahoo.com).
