Golf Tournament

Recap of the 2014 Tournament

NAU’s School of Hotel and Restaurant Management held their 15th annual golf tournament at the JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort in Phoenix on Monday, April 11, 2014. The tournament, a fundraiser that goes towards scholarships for HRM students, was very successful this year. There were 160 players, up 26% from last year’s participants, which significantly added to the scholarship fund's base as well as the fun to be had on the course..

The tournament committee, made up of Professors Jon Hales, Darwin Mann, Galen Collins, and Wally Rande, worked with several of HRM’s National Advisory Board members to gain sponsors who donated prizes or money to the cause.

A lot of the success of 2014’s tournament can also be attributed to the level of student involvement. The students helped to sell raffle tickets, gave mulligans to the golf players, and presented the silent auction items for bid.

The day was a Win-Win for all involved and for future recipients of the scholarship monies. At the April 11, 2014 Scholars and Honors Convocation, for 2014-2015 academic year, there were 19 awards for a total of $14,000 from the HRM Golf Tournament scholarship fund. Thank you to all who participated.
