6th Annual Big Cat Golf Classic

Where: At Tanglewood Golf Club

When: August 30, 2021

Join Cleary University on Monday, August 30, 2021, at Tanglewood Golf Club (22805 Country Club Dr. South Lyon, MI 48178) for the 6th Annual Cleary University BIG CAT GOLF CLASSIC!

This event launched in 2015 as a way to support Cleary student-athletes as our Athletic Department grew by leaps and bounds. We aim to ensure that all Cleary student-athletes have the necessary financial, academic, and emotional support services to ensure their success on and off the field.

To date, the event has raised more than $150,000.

After a pandemic hiatus, the event is back this year at the picturesque Tanglewood Golf Club, which features 27 championship holes. Attendees will have the opportunity to play in a 4-person scramble format and engage Cleary student-athletes. Our men’s and women’s golf teams will be on hand to lend a helping hand or “shot” at specific holes on the course.

The event features a continental breakfast, lunch at the turn, cocktail reception, and dinner as well as a number of opportunities to win fabulous prizes. All proceeds support the rising expenses associated with our growing athletic department.
