The tournament kicks off a series of special activities for the academic year 2019-2020 that are part of the celebration of the college’s 100-year anniversary. Special events during the centennial year are being planned according to the theme, “My Central, My Legacy.” In addition to this golf outing, activities include a ribbon cutting ceremony for the Legacy Suite in Lovinger Education Building Aug. 15, the College of Education’s centennial celebration weekend, Oct. 25-26, and other events that commemorate UCM’s history of preparing outstanding educators and unveil the college’s vision for the future.
Interested individuals are encouraged to sign up and register online for the tournament in advance. The cost is $125 per person or $250 per team, and includes breakfast, lunch and two drink tickets. Giveaways and prizes will be awarded.
A prominent recreation area on today’s campus, Mules National Golf Club is an 18-hole public golf course and includes features such as zoysia fairways, beautiful white sand bunkers, UCGA-spec bentgrass greens, an island green on the 18th hole and a 650-yard par 5, all providing a challenging but fair opportunity for golfers of all abilities.
The UCM College of Education dates back to the naming of the university as Central Missouri State Teachers College in 1919. This was the result of legislation which renamed all of the state’s Normal Schools, which were created to prepare teachers to serve the state of Missouri.
