Club members, faculty and staff, and guests receive discounts with donation Nov. 14-22

COLUMBUS, Ohio The Ohio State University Golf Course and the Mid-Ohio Food Bank have joined together to hold a canned food drive Nov. 14-22 at the golf club located on Kenny Rd. in Columbus, Ohio.

With a donation of five non-perishable items, OSUGC members, OSU faculty and staff, and guests will receive discounts on various entities, including: 

  • Cart fee waived with purchase of 18-hole round
  • Free buffet lunch with purchase of 18-hole round
  • 10 percent off merchandise in the pro shop

“We are continually trying to find positive ways to give back to our community,” Marc Lucas, OSU Golf Course Manager, said. ” With the economy down and the holiday season quickly approaching, we felt this was one of the best ideas that would have an immediate impact. The members, faculty and staff that play here are always willing to help. We are certain this will be a very successful week for the Mid-Ohio Food Bank.” 

Mid-Ohio Foodbank is dedicated to feeding hungry people by collecting and distributing food and grocery products, advocating for hunger-relief programs, and collaborating with others who address basic human needs.

The Ohio State University Golf Course:

Established in 1938, the Ohio State University Scarlet Golf Course is rated one of the best collegiate facilities in the country by Golf Digest.

Located two miles northwest of the main campus at the corner of Kenny and Tremont Roads, the Par 71 course carries a rating of 76.1 with a slope of 142. From the championship tees, it stretches out to 7,455 yards of rolling terrain and contains a 9 1/2-acre lake and winding stream that creates challenging play on several holes. The large contoured greens are surrounded by strategically placed bunkers, adding to the difficulty of the course.

Besides the Scarlet Course, the University Golf Club boasts a second course, the Gray Course, a pro shop, a restaurant, a driving range, numerous practice greens and the OSU men’s and women’s golf coaches’ offices.
