We have enjoyed a terrific partnership with Coach Mike Small and his University of Illinois men’s golf program and expanded our reach into collegiate golf with a partnership with Notre Dame in 2109. Notre Dame opted to award their exemption to the winner of their Fighting Irish Classic that took place last fall We look forward to hosting Michael and Steven next month and hope to see galleries come out and support these stellar young men.” said Executive Director, Kate Peters.
