The Jersey Jermier Golf Invitational is set for Fri., Oct. 11, at the Red Carpet Golf Course in Waterloo, Iowa.
"Jersey is synonymous with UNI Athletics," UNI Director of Athletics Troy Dannen said. "Since joining the department in 1980, Jersey has never stopped friendraising and fundraising for UNI. What better way to honor him than to have our biggest tournament of the year bear his name."
Jermier joined the UNI athletics staff in 1980 as an Associate Director of Athletics. Although he retired in 1997, he has not stopped assisting in the development of UNI Athletics and continues to be an active partner with the Panthers.
The event will feature a lunch beginning at 11 a.m. and a Noon shotgun start with a four-person best shot format. The cost of the event will be $50 for each individual. All proceeds from the tournament will go to the Jersey Jermier Athletic Scholarship Endowment.
The Jersey Jermier Golf Invitational will replace the annual UNI Spectacular and will be played each year on the Friday prior to UNI's Homecoming.
