KSB Open offers chance to meet golf management students

An upcoming golf event hosted and managed by the Trine University golf management program in the university’s Ketner School of Business will give participants the opportunity to interact with Trine students and learn more about what the program offers.

The KSB Open will be held April 28 at Zollner Golf Course on the Trine University campus. The 18-hole championship course is known for its beautifully landscaped, undulating fairways, scenic views and hilly terrain.

Besides golf, the event includes lunch and a catered dinner by Bon Appetit, as well as prize drawings and a silent auction. Prizes to be awarded include rounds of golf, golf equipment and items donated by local businesses. Prizes for the top three teams and proxy prizes also will be awarded.

The format for the event will be a step-aside scramble with a shotgun start at 1 p.m.

For those who wish to get a more personal view of Trine’s golf management program and its students, team sponsorships are available for $300, with teams including one Trine student along with three other players. Otherwise, registration is $75 per person.

The university’s golf management class is hosting the KSB Open as a class project. Besides handling the logistics of the day, students will be available to talk about Trine University, the Ketner School of Business and the golf management program. Both KSB and the golf management program have had a 100 percent employment rate for graduates each of the past two years.

“The students are learning the ins and outs of a running an event,” said Catherine Benson, chair of the Ketner School of Business and director of the golf management program.
