The Heldt-Laker Memorial Golf Outing is Friday, July 12 at the Estherville Golf Course. The annual golf event is in honor of Linda Heldt, a 25-year employee of Iowa Lakes Community College, who in her position as Athletic Administrative Assistant served not only as a great asset to the Athletic department but also a positive influence on the students, coaches, officials and co-workers. The Heldt-Laker Memorial Golf Outing provides scholarship funds for student athletes at Iowa Lakes.
“I am excited about the upcoming Heldt-Laker Memorial Golf Outing. It is our primary fundraiser for athletic scholarships. All proceeds go directly to student athlete scholarships, which allows us to recruit the right type of students and have successful teams,” Troy Larson, Athletic Director of Iowa Lakes Community College said.
“Honoring Linda Heldt annually at this event is meaningful as well. Linda cared deeply about Iowa Lakes and our student athletes, so it is more than appropriate we honor her name by awarding these scholarships. I am looking forward to a good turnout and a great event,” Larson said.
Registration begins at 11 a.m. and includes lunch with a 12 p.m. shotgun start. The event features a 9-hole, four-person best-shot tournament format. The entry fee is $100 per golfer or $400 per four-person team and includes green fees, cart (if requested), lunch, Laker Athletic t-shirt, and a scholarship fund donation. Those wishing to join for the meal only are welcome for a $15 charge.
Fundraising games are also planned at various locations on the course, which can lower scores and generate additional dollars for athletic scholarships.
Raffle tickets will be available for four (4) Iowa Football tickets, which include overnight accommodations. Raffle tickets can also be purchased from the Foundation Office, Athletic Department or Student Athletes. The drawing will be held on September 11th during the Laker Home Volleyball game.
