I hope everyone had a great summer and are back to follow the SIUE Cougar golf team! We are off to a fast start with school starting last week and getting our feet under us. We had a great first week of practice and I can see a lot of potential from our guys.
This past Saturday the SIUE Athletic Department hosted a fund-raising golf scramble at our home course, Sunset Hills Country Club. It was a great success with over 275 players enjoying the double shotgun tournament. For all that did play it was great to meet and chat with you about SIUE athletics and our golf program here. From the Men's Golf Team and the whole athletic department we say thanks to all who came out and supported us. I personally would like to thank the following who donated their entry fee directly to the men's program: Harry Gallatin and family, Les Agne, Tim Gehrig, Jay Eihausen, Brooks Brestal and to Mike Knoll and Quaker Window Products.
