2018 homecoming golf feature UPDATED-01

Hesston College will open its Homecoming Weekend celebration with the annual Homecoming Golf Benefit on Thursday, Sept. 27, at Hesston Golf Park.

The 2018 benefit will honor the Hesston College athletic teams of the 1960s that saw much success in the Prairie Junior College Conference (PJCC), winning the PJCC All-Sports sweepstakes trophy multiple times during those years.

Registration for the event is $125 per person. The deadline to register is Sept. 24. Hole sponsorships are also available. See more information and register.

Thanks to sponsors underwriting the event in full, 100 percent of proceeds will benefit Hesston College and all aspects of the student experience.

Hesston College Homecoming 2018, Sept. 28 to 30, will be a celebration of 60 years of intercollegiate athletics. Prior to the late 1950’s, the college offered only intramural sports among students. By 1963 Hesston offered men’s sports in baseball, basketball, golf, soccer, tennis and track, which all competed at a very high level and saw much success during that decade. Today, the college offers 14 men’s and women’s varsity sports.
