Play Golf to Support the Knights

by Katie Bradley | Jun 06, 2014

This summer, two of Hamilton County’s top golf courses, Wood Wind Golf Course and Prairie View Golf Club, will donate $10 to the Marian University M-Club for every round of golf played.

In order to receive the donation, players must sign up to receive a “Marian University Players Pass” from each of the courses. Passes can be requested on the Wood Wind Golf Course website and the Prairie View Golf Club website.

The Marian University M-Club is the annual charitable giving program that benefits all Marian University athletic programs. Donations to the M-Club help us enhance athletic facilities, provide scholarships to student-athletes, and support the continuing needs of our championship-caliber programs.
