The annual Hugh Andrews Memorial Golf Outing, a fundraising event for Franklin College, will be held Thursday, May 7 at The Legends Golf Club in Franklin. The event will begin with registration and lunch at 11 a.m., followed by a shotgun start at noon and dinner to follow.
Johnson Memorial Hospital (www. johnsonmemorial.org) is the title sponsor of the golf outing.
The late Dr. Andrews was a third-generation graduate of Franklin College and a prominent family physician in Franklin for 35 years. In 1991 he retired from medicine but remained active in the community as a member of the Franklin College Board of Trustees and the Johnson County Community Foundation board, among others. He was also chairman of the Johnson Memorial Hospital Board of Trustees.
Andrews was an avid golfer and a member of Hillview Country Club and The Legends Golf Club. Under his leadership, the Franklin College Board of Trustees began the tradition of an annual golf outing, which has grown into a successful fundraiser for the college athletics department and networking event for its alumni and friends.
Following Andrews’ death in October 2005, the trustees voted in favor of renaming the annual golf event in his honor.
The event will be a Florida style scramble. Cost is $100 per player or $400 per team, which includes lunch, green fees, cart and dinner. Non-golfers are invited to join participants for dinner at a cost of $25. Registration deadline is Thursday, April 30.
Corporate and individual tee sponsorships are available.
Event proceeds will be used to support Grizzly Park, the outdoor athletic complex on the east side of the Franklin College campus. Students, faculty, staff and members of the local community enjoy the benefits of the new park.
