It’s that time of year again, folks! The weather’s warming up, the semester is coming to a close, and that means one thing: our annual Golf Outing is right around the corner! This year, our Golf Outing will take place June 5-7, 2015, and you do not want to miss out! Our schedule of events is provided below:

Friday, June 5: Golf @ PSU White Course - Shotgun start promptly at Noon. We will have our popular Friday event at one of our favorite courses, the venerable White Course at Penn State.

The Penn State Golf Courses practice facility will be open to attendees at 10:30 a.m. with range balls included. Lunch is also included with this event and will start at 10:45 a.m. A selection of adult and alternative beverages (pending university approval) will be available on the course.

This is individual stroke play, but there will be a foursome prize for our fun and unique annual team event as well as recognition of the individual Low Gross and Net and customary skills events for the day.

Saturday, June 6: Golf @ PSU Blue Course - Shotgun start promptly at 9:00 AM The 'granddaddy of them all' and a time-honored 'tradition unlike any other' all wrapped into one morning. The format is handicapped team scramble, and you need to indicate your and your expected teammates' handicaps when registering. This is generally a "fun competition" and, if you don't have a team, we'll be happy to partner you with other players of equal temperament, talent and conviction. All teams will be in a position to compete and aspire to win the coveted 'Tacky Jacket' as recognition for the Low Net team champions and join a distinguished group of Past Champions. There will also be a set of inspiring Nittany Lion Statues for the Low Gross team champions.

Traditional prizes for Longest Drive, Straightest Drive and Closest to the Pin, as well as second and third place in the Net and Gross flights will be awarded as well.

Lunch at the Turn - a hot dog, chips and a drink are included, as well as a selection of adult and alternative beverages (pending university approval) on the course.

Saturday, June 6: Awards Ceremony and Steak Bake @ 400 E.Prospect Ave. 5:30PM - Golfer or not, please join us at our Chapter House for cocktails and dinner. This offers a chance for Brothers and friends of all ages to socialize and recount the events of the weekend. The always emotional, sometimes controversial, but highly anticipated Awards Ceremony kicks off at approximately 6:30 p.m. Dinner will be at 7:15 p.m. A top-shelf bar will be provided along with hearty appetizers and culminating with a gourmet steak dinner. Past Champions are reminded to wear their 'Tacky Jackets' this evening, as part of our tradition.

Sunday, June 7: Alumni Meeting @ 400 E. Prospect Ave. 9:00AM - Before you head home, please set aside an hour and join us at the Chapter House for coffee and donuts and an update from the House Corporation leadership on the "State of the Chapter."
