The Nokomis Athletic Club is moving forward with plans for their annual golf outing, the Arrowhead Open.
The seventh annual Arrowhead Open is scheduled for Saturday, Aug. 15, at the Indian Springs Golf Course in Fillmore on Route 185. The committee is monitoring the state’s reopening phase plan as they work on inviting golfers to this event.
The Arrowhead Open is a four-person scramble and includes 18 holes of golf, a cart, mulligans and a meal. Prizes are also awarded to the golfers.
“This event not only supports a great cause, but will be a great way to get out and have some summer fun,” Brandon Engelman, committee member, said.
The funds from the Arrowhead Open support student athletes at the Nokomis Junior and Senior High School in a variety of ways. The role of the NAC is to support all athletic programs at Nokomis. In the past the Arrowhead Open proceeds purchased uniforms, equipment, team camp fees, athlete apparel and weight room equipment.
Another important mission of the NAC is to support senior athletes with scholarships. Recently, the NAC awarded $1,600 in student scholarships.
Before the shelter-in-place order, the Nokomis Athletic Club met in person and elected new officers. After many years of dedication, Missy Keiser (president), Julie Knodle (treasurer) and Cheri Herpstreith (secretary) decided it was time to retire from the leadership of the organization.
The new officers elected were Sheila Keller, president; Amy Stolte, treasurer; and Jane Aumann, secretary. Fellow committee members include: Bonnie Brownback, Brandon Engelman, Liz Engelman, Tanya Engelman, Beth King, Dawn Mascher, Cassie Watson and Paul Watson.
The Arrowhead Open is the organization’s biggest fundraiser of the year. For golfer registration details, contact Brandon Engelman at 217-820-2654.
