Individual entry fee is $200, which includes golf and cart, barbecue lunch and drinks on the course, tournament gift and dinner. Sponsorship packages are available at the $7,500, $5,000 and $2,000 levels. Tee sponsors, longest drive sponsor, and closest to the pin sponsor are also available for $1,000 each.

The College of Pharmacy previously participated in the Good Neighbor Pharmacy-Institute for Community Pharmacy (GNP-ICP) Scholarship Golf Classic, which provided scholarships to WesternU and USC School of Pharmacy students interested in independent community pharmacy.

The new WesternU College of Pharmacy Scholarship Golf Classic will raise money for the College’s general scholarship fund.

“Our tournament is open to everyone who is interested in supporting WesternU College of Pharmacy students as they pursue their dreams of becoming licensed pharmacists,” said College of Pharmacy Director of Development Bill Burrows. “We want to build a lasting tradition, something that our supporters will look forward to each year.”
