It’s time to once again break out your golfing shoes!

The Angus Foundation’s 17th annual golf tournament will take place Tuesday, July 11, at The Legacy Golf Club in Norwalk, Iowa. This event held in conjunction with the 2017 National Junior Angus Show (NJAS) helps fund education, youth and research initiatives.

“We are so appreciative of the Angus Foundation supporters who turn out year after year to play golf with their Angus friends while also supporting our organization’s mission,” says Milford Jenkins, Angus Foundation president. “A great time and warm Angus fellowship shared by all make this a relaxing and enjoyable fundraising event each year for Angus golfers attending the NJAS.”

The 2017 event sponsor is NuTech Biosciences and Kentucky Nutrition Services, Lawrenceburg, Ky. The sponsorship was purchased during the 2017 Angus Bull Sale at the National Western Stock Show in Denver, Colo., this past January.

Eight additional sponsorship levels for individuals, farms and ranches are available. Each sponsorship level contains various promotional opportunities, including recognition in the tournament program, postevent news release, the Angus Journal, and the Angus Foundation’s website and annual report. Available sponsors are: luncheon, beverage/player cart, club house, hole-in-one, gift, tee box, hole and flag. Sponsorship deadline is June 2.

Interested players may register until June 26. Adult golfer registration is $100 per player, and National Junior Angus Association (NJAA) member registration is $75 per player. After the deadline, a $10 late fee per player will apply to the rates.

More information about the annual golf tournament, as well as the event schedule, can be found at www.angusfoundation.org.
