The Champions Tour Golf Tournament is our annual flagship event. It serves as a fundraiser for UND Athletics as well as an opportunity to gather with fellow UND alumni, friends, fans, and coaches.
2015 Tour Dates
- Park River, ND: Thursday, June 4, 2015
- Fargo (Oxbow), ND: Monday, June 15, 2015
- Detroit Lakes, MN: Thursday, July 16, 2015
- Bismarck, ND: Tuesday, August 11, 2015

Each year, the golf tournaments contribute over $25,000 in additional
funding toward UND’s Athletics budget. This helps fill the gap of
unrealized scholarships for UND student-athletes. Registration fees,
raffles, and sponsorships all contribute to the need.
