The Prairie State College (PSC) Foundation is hosting its 25th Annual Scholarship Classic Golf Outing on Monday, June 4, 2018, at Idlewild Country Club in Flossmoor, Ill. All proceeds from the event will directly benefit student scholarships at PSC.

The cost for the golf scramble is $200 per golfer and includes an 11 a.m. grilled lunch in the clubhouse and driving range warm-ups, followed by a 12:30 p.m. shotgun start. Golf carts and beverages are included.

Golfers may increase their scholarship contributions by becoming a sponsor or signing up for the Diploma Games Package, which includes participation in a hole-in-one contest for $5,000 to the first successful contestant, three mulligans, a Poker Run contest and more.

All golfers will get to chance to win a hole-in-one contest, sponsored by Arnie Bauer Cadillac Buick GMC in Matteson. The first golfer to hit a hole-in-one on a preassigned hole will win a 2018 Buick Envision.

The evening event will begin with cocktails at 5 p.m., followed by a 6 p.m. buffet dinner and awards presentation. Those who are unavailable to participate in the full day’s event can attend the evening dinner. The cost is $60 per person and includes a cocktail hour.

“Our purpose and mission is to provide scholarships for the deserving and hardworking students at PSC,” said Deborah Havighorst, executive director, Institutional Advancement and the PSC Foundation. “Each year the golf outing proves to be one of the Foundation’s most anticipated events full of camaraderie, friendly competition and fun,” she said.

According to Havighorst, the Foundation is anticipating the need to award up to $60,000 in scholarships for the fall 2018 semester, and the success of Foundation events, including the golf outing, is pivotal to meeting that need.

Advance registration is required by May 30. For more information or to register, visit or call the PSC Foundation office at 708-709-7918. To learn more about the PSC Foundation and ways to help support student scholarships, visit or contact Deborah Havighorst at [email protected].
