Lincoln University Presents Sixth Annual Alumni Golf Classic at Wyncote Golf Club
The July 21 Annual Golf outing helps raise funds for student scholarships.

Lincoln University, PA (—Lincoln University—America’s first Historically Black University—will hold its Sixth Annual Lincoln University Golf Classic on Monday, July 21 at the Wyncote Golf Club in Oxford, Pa. Tee time is 8:30 a.m.

The Lincoln University Golf Classic is one of the many regional and national activities the University will host over the next year to celebrate its sesquicentennial, or 150th anniversary. Proceeds from the Lincoln Golf Classic will benefit the Lincoln University Alumni Golf Classic Scholarship Fund and other student scholarship funds at the University. It’s a fun day and great opportunity for Lincoln alumni, administration and friends of the Lincoln to support the University. The $125 participation fee includes greens fee, cart, continental breakfast, golfer’s package and awards banquet.

Honorary chairpersons for this year’s Lincoln Golf Classic include Frank C. Gihan ’72, chair, Lincoln Board of Trustees; Ivory V. Nelson, Ph.D., University President; Dr. Patricia Nelson, wife of President Nelson and co-chair of the Sesquicentennial Commission; Dr. Frank “Tick” Coleman ’35, special assistant to the President for Alumni Giving; Harold Gray, mayor of Oxford; and James Pepple, owner of the Wyncote Golf Club. Golf Digest, the sport’s premier publication, awarded Wyncote Golf Club its four-stars rating—ranking it among the country’s best public golf courses.

Among Lincoln’s other upcoming sesquicentennial events will be the presentation of grand gala events in four major U.S. cities: Philadelphia, New York City, Atlanta and Washington, D.C. The Philadelphia gala will be held on October 24 at the Wyndham Philadelphia at Franklin Plaza.

Founded in 1854, Lincoln University provides the best elements of a liberal arts and sciences-based undergraduate core curriculum and selected graduate programs to meet the needs of students living in a highly technological and global society. Lincoln has the unprecedented distinction among all colleges and universities of having two of its alumni—Thurgood Marshall ’30, the first African-American Supreme Court Justice; and Langston Hughes, a world-acclaimed poet—honored with U.S. commemorative stamps in 2002 and 2003, respectively.
