Golfest Caps Off Historic Year in Butler Athletics
Butler University's annual golf outing that supports Bulldog
Athletics - was held on Monday, June 7th at Pebble Brook Golf Club
in Noblesville, Ind.
Two hundred fifty-six golfers participated and 58 sponsors supported this year’s Golfest making it one of the largest outings in the history of the event. Sunshine and warm breezes covered the golf course throughout the day as ideal conditions settled in making it a perfect day for everyone in attendance.
The 64 foursomes were made up of Bulldog Club donors, former student-athletes, corporate sponsors, coaches and athletic staff members. After the round was completed, attendees were addressed by Butler Athletic Director Barry Collier and head coaches Beth Couture (Women’s Basketball), Jeff Voris (Football) and Brad Stevens (Men’s Basketball).
"It was not only great day to spend with our alumni, fans and donors, but also a time to look back on what has been one of the most memorable seasons in the history of Butler Athletics," said Athletic Director Barry Collier. “It is also a good springboard for us as we move toward the 2010-11 season of competition.”
Golfest traditionally takes place the day after the Butler Athletics Hall of Fame Dinner and Induction Ceremony, which was held on Sunday, June 6th in the Atherton Union on Butler's campus.
"It’s been a tremendous year for Butler Athletics, so to cap it off with five new inductees into the Butler Athletics Hall of Fame along with a record-breaking Golfest, it’s just a special way to end the year," said Associate Athletic Director Mike Freeman. "Neither event would be possible without the help and support of the B-Association and its members along with our volunteers from the Athletic Department and University Advancement."
