Benedictine University is an inclusive academic community dedicated to teaching and learning, scholarship and service, truth and justice, as inspired by the Catholic intellectual tradition, the social teaching of the Church, and the principles of wisdom in the Rule of St. Benedict.
Benedictine University aspires to be a thought leader in Catholic higher education. We seek to provide a transformative and integrative educational experience grounded in Benedictine values, helping students shape lives of meaning and purpose as engaged citizens who care for the earth, welcome people of diverse faiths and cultures, and promote the common good.
History of the President's Invitational Golf Outing
The President's Invitational Golf Outing
started in 1995 as an athletic event. The outing was held at the Naperville
Country Club. In 2002 the focus was changed and it became a fundraiser for
student scholarships and moved to Cress Creek Country Club.
Beginning in 2008 our vision was to make the
President's Invitational Golf Outing one of the premiere outings in the area.
To do so would not only put Benedictine
University in the forefront of the
major golf outings in Northern Illinois but it
would also serve as the largest fundraiser for the University. This is when we
decided to start bringing in golf celebrities. Our slate of celebrities has
included: Hank Haney, Natalie Gulbis, Lee Trevino, Tom Watson, David Feherty,
Lee Trevino and Gary McCord, David Feherty and Annika Sorenstam.
In 2010 we moved the outing to Cantigny Golf
in Wheaton where we enjoyed five successful outings. In 2016, we moved to Cog Hill Golf and Country Club in Lemont. We welcomed Ben
Crenshaw as our celebrity guest.
The funds raised at this outing go to benefit
our students in the form of scholarship dollars. Through the participation of
our golfers and sponsors we are able to help students who would otherwise be
unable to complete their Benedictine education. We thank all of you.
