The 26th annual MVB/Fairmont State Athletic Association Golf Tournament is set for Friday, May 18, at Bridgeport Country Club. Registration will begin at 11:30 a.m., with a shotgun start at 12:30 p.m.
The tournament is annually one of the top fundraisers for the Fairmont State University athletic department with net proceeds benefiting athletic scholarships.
"While the Golf Tournament offers golfers a day of fellowship, competition and great food, the real winners of the tournament are Fairmont State's student athletes," Acting Director of Athletics, Chad Fowler said. "Proceeds from the tournament will benefit 16 Fairmont State athletic programs through scholarships. For many students, an athletic scholarship is their best chance to earn a college education."
The event features a two-person, 18-hole scramble across three flights. All participants will receive a welcome gift, lunch and opportunity to win great prizes. Golf and cart fees are $200 per person or $750 for a group of four. To register for the event, complete and return the attached application (or visit
