CANYON, Texas — Teams of four are sought for West Texas A&M University’s first Paul and Virginia Engler College of Business Golf Classic, set for April 28.

The tournament, which will raise funds for scholarships in the Engler College of Business, will begin at 1 p.m. April 28 at Palo Duro Creek Golf Course, 50 Country Club Drive in Canyon. Registration deadline is the morning of April 28; sponsorship deadline is April 18.

Cost is $600 per team, or from $1,000 to $2,500 with sponsorship benefits. Business sponsorships also are available for $500.

The event also will include prizes, a raffle and a dinner following the tournament.

“This tournament is a natural fit for the Engler College of Business since many of our current and future business students will add golf in their lives via business meetings and trips or just because it is a great way to get outside and meet people,” said Dr. Robert A. King, WT’s David Wilder Professor of Business. “We look forward to this event growing in years to come so we can continue to provide scholarships for our worthy students.”

Providing scholarships is one way WT keeps the cost of education affordable for its students, as laid out in the University’s long-range plan, WT 125: From the Panhandle to the World.

That plan is fueled by the historic, $125 million One West comprehensive fundraising campaign. To date, the five-year campaign — which publicly launched Sept. 23 — has raised about $110 million.
