Another successful edition of the Olds College Golf Classic was held on Wednesday, August 28th at the Olds Golf Club. Linda Henderson - Director of Athletics at Olds College - says each year they have to raise a minimum of about $90,000 dollars to cover the scholarships for Broncos student athletes.
The sun came out for the 2019 edition of the Olds College Golf Classic.
Linda Henderson, Director of Athletics at Olds College, says they had just under 100 golfers join them this year at the Olds Golf Club.
While they haven't done the final calculations yet, Henderson says the addition of a live auction this year helped them increase the amount raised to approximately $30,000 to $35,000 dollars.
She notes other changes for this year included having the tournament in August instead of in September, starting it later in the day, as well as staying at the Olds Golf Club for the wrap-up dinner and prizes afterwards - instead of going back to the Olds College Alumni Centre.
Henderson says they also listened to some suggestions for how to improve the OC Golf Classic in 2020.
She thanks everyone who participated.
The first Olds College Broncos teams to play ACAC regular season games this fall will be the men's and women's soccer teams.
They start on the road by visiting the Ambrose Lions on Friday, September 6th and the SAIT Trojans on Sunday, September 7th.
The home opener at Richardson Pioneer Field in Olds for the Broncos soccer teams is set for Sunday, September 15th.
