LCCC Foundation annual scholarship for golf attracts PGA professionals

Lorain County Community College hosted an annual golf scholarship.

The 31st annual LCCC Jack Nicklaus Scholarship Golf Benefit was sponsored by Huntington Bank and Morgan Stanley.

The event took place on August 9th at the Elyria Country Club.

The 31st annual LCCC Jack Nicklaus Scholarship Golf Benefit was sponsored by Huntington Bank and Morgan Stanley.

Every year there is an exhibition by a visiting professional, and this year attendees had the privilege of having two.

“This event is the Foundation’s largest fundraiser,” said Lisa Brown, director of the LCCC Foundation. “We appreciate all of our sponsors and golfers who help make education more accessible to our Lorain County residents.”

Bourne and PGA Professional Jimmy Hanlin hosted the pro exhibition and provided advice to attendees during the course.

Robert L. Bourne is one of only twelve PGA Master Professionals in Ohio and a Titleist Performance Institute certified instructor.

“Bob is considered one of the most respected instructors in our region and country and we are excited to return to Lorain County and join us to make this event special for our attendees,” said Tracy Green, LCCC Vice President for strategic and institutional development.

Hanlin is the host of the nationally televised golf show Blaster’s 18 Holes, presented by the Marathon and Swing Clinic.

He is also the owner and golf director of Golf Digest’s five-star Little Mountain Country Club in Concord, Ohio and Stonewater Golf Club in Highland Heights, Ohio.

All proceeds from the golf excursion will go to the Jack Nicklaus Scholarship Endowment Fund, Brown said.

In addition to the Nicklaus Endowment Fund, the LCCC Foundation manages more than 185 scholarship funds that financially support more than 850 LCCC and University Partnership students each year.
