Golf Outing History

The Friends of Manchester Golf Outing started in 1990 thanks to a vision by Ken Metzger ’67 and Til ’47 and Dortha Martz ’47 King. The first outing attracted 40 golfers and raised $300 for the Manchester College Athletic Department.

The event has grown in participation and popularity and, in 2009, after 20 years, the golf outing raised $123,000 and surpassed the $1 million mark in contributions. Read more >

In 2010, organization of the event was passed on to the Manchester Athletic Department, keeping the vision of Ken, Dortha and Til alive.
