MINNEAPOLIS - The 40th Annual John Mariucci Golf Open is set for Monday, July 22 at TPC Twin Cities in Blaine with proceeds from the event benefiting the Gopher hockey program.
Registration for the John Mariucci Golf Open is open now with entry fees including green fees and golf cart, food and beverages on the course, buffet dinner, use of practice facility and locker room, donation to the Gopher hockey program and a gift for all participants. The tournament will be limited to the first 150 paid registrations and will be played rain or shine. To help eliminate confusion, golfers are encouraged to send one registration per team. Teams of less than five will be paired up by the tournament committee.
Always an entertaining event for Gopher hockey alumni and fans alike, this year's tournament has extra excitement for participants. For the first time ever, golfers will have the opportunity to enter a drawing for the chance to play with a current Gopher hockey player or staff member (drawing will take place the day of the event). Additionally, the 3M Championship will take place at TPC Twin Cities the week after this year's tournament.
Hole, tee and green sponsorship opportunities for the 40th Annual John Mariucci Golf Open are also available. Please see the attached registration form for more information.
