Bethany Sports Classic Golf Tournament

Online Auction

We are excited to announce that the 35th annual Bethany Sports Classic Golf Tournament will be happening as scheduled on Monday, August 3 at the Mankato Golf Club!

The event will be played on this date, but with a few changes to comply with social distancing efforts related to COVID-19. Instead of the customary shotgun start we are going to do tee times every 10 minutes beginning at 9 a.m. and ending at 3 p.m. Meals will be made “to go” so you can eat on the course or bring home with you after the round. All golfers will the receive a meal, and also snack/beverage vouchers to be used at the concession stand or hospitality cart on the course.

We will be having an online silent auction and raffle. More information on this will be announced as we get closer to the date of the tournament. Also, contest winners and teams that place 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 9th, 18th, and 27 will be notified via email shortly after the last team finishes for the day. 

*Please contact Jake Krier if you have questions about the tournament!* 

Although we are unable to congregate the way we have in the past, we are confident this tournament will be as enjoyable and successful as it always is. Please join us for another beautiful day of fun and fellowship with the Bethany Family, and help us raise important dollars for our Bethany Vikings Athletic Department!
