After several efforts to organize such an event, the first annual St. John's Lacrosse Golf Outing took place at Oak Glen Golf Course in Stillwater, Minn. on Oct. 9, 2011.
Members of the current SJU Lacrosse team as well as friends, family and alumni gathered for a great day that while centered on golf also reflected back on the Johnnies' 2011 UMLL DII championship season and looked toward the future.
Roughly 45 golfers teed off in pursuit of the inaugural SJU Golf Outing trophy and a year's worth of bragging rights. The 2011 winners were Bob Mattison (SJU Class of '70), Mark Smith, Andy Fulton and current Johnnies' senior captain Alex Fulton.
Among the competitions on the course were the longest drive for both men and women, closest to the pin, longest putt and an additional putting contest on the green.
Booster member Allan Safranek commented on the success of the event, the excellent course and facility as well as the amazing weather.
Continuing the tradition, the Second Annual SJU Golf Outing has already been set for Sunday, Oct. 14, back at the Oak Glen Golf Course.
Thank you to everyone who assisted with the event's organization, everyone who made a financial donation or donation to the raffle and everyone who attended.
