Derek Harmon Memorial Golf Tournament

October 22, 2009

The Derek Harmon Memorial Golf Tournament took place on Sunday, October 18 at Veenker Memorial Golf Course. Derek was a turfgrass student at Iowa State who possessed an unconditional love for golf courses and nature and the tournament was held to honor his memory and to create a scholarship for turfgrass students attending Iowa State. There was an overwhelming show of support from family, friends, and the industry and close to $12,000 was raised towards a scholarship in Derek’s name.

A big “thank you” goes out to John Newton, CGCS, and his crew along with the entire clubhouse staff, all the participants, and everyone else that was involved in the planning and preparation for this event. Derek would be very proud.

Derek, in your honor as a superfan of all Chicago sports.
