Golf Facilities Expansion

Golf Facilities Expansion

As Methodist University looks to the future, growth and continuous improvement are two concepts that drive all that we do.  We strive to build on the mantra of Signature Programs, built around Signature People with Signature Students producing Signature Graduates.

The PGA Golf Management Education Center and Golf Course “Downback” are central to this theme and this program. With the academic and athletic program’s outstanding record and reputation, the new facility, course improvements, and future scholarships will ensure that the program continues to successfully recruit and retain the best students in America.

But, like anything else – WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT!  We have developed the following fundraising program for OUR ALUMNI and FRIENDS & FAMILY to participate in.   You may want to consider a combined effort with your family to maximize your gift.  Donors who give $1,000 or more to this effort will be recognized on a donor recognition plaque in the new Golf Education Center.

We are looking for alums willing to step up to the first tee and be a team captain! Can you commit financially to the excellence of the program and recruit 4 of your friends to pledge with you.  We’ve set it up as a challenge between the various 4 year periods of graduates as shown below:

1989 – 1992    $1,500/year for 5 years         $125/month   $7,500 Total Pledge

1993 – 1996    $1,500/year for 5 years         $125/month   $7,500 Total Pledge

1997 – 2000    $1,000/year for 5 years         $  83/month   $5,000 Total Pledge

2001 – 2004    $1,000/year for 5 years         $  83/month   $5,000 Total Pledge

“My goal every day when you were at Methodist was to provide you with a quality PGA
education that would position you for the best opportunities in the golf industry. Now I
am asking you to “Pay it Forward” and help me provide today’s students with the facilities
and instruction to meet the demands of today’s highly competitive job market.”
