            BOULDER — The 5th Annual Colorado Golf Day, the main fundraising event for the University of Colorado men's golf team, is set for Monday, August 31 and will once again be held at Boulder Country Club.
            Participants will once again have the opportunity to play the course that has previously hosted the men's and women's Pac-12 Conference championships as well as several of the state's top amateur tournaments throughout its history.  The only difference this year is that with the COVID-19 pandemic, all entrants must wear a face mask in any area that requires social distancing.
"Colorado Golf Day has been a key day to raise funds for our golf program and has always been a fun day for our team and friends to get together," said Roy Edwards, CU's head men's golf coach.  "We are fortunate we are still able to play golf in a safe and fun way and we would love to have fans of the program and game of the golf join us at Boulder CC."
                The format is a four-person "shamble" with a 1:30 p.m. shotgun start, and entry fees include lunch, beverages, a heavy appetizer awards reception and prizes (a shamble is where everyone tees off, but then everyone plays in from the location of the best drive).  Individual entry fees are $400, with a team of four costing $1,600; players can compete as individuals or for their businesses, but also can compete with three others on behalf of their designated golf club (members, pros, staff members, etc.) and the winning team will receive a rotating trophy to be on display at their club.  The three-time defending champion in the latter is Boulder Country Club.
                There are also a few remaining sponsorship opportunities available (hole and title sponsors at various donation amounts), along with many great auction items to bid on as well.  All net proceeds from the event go to the Men's Golf Team Excellence Fund to help defray assorted expenses over the course of the season, which with the current pandemic and with the cancellation of the fall collegiate golf season, is more important than ever.
                For more information on the event and to consider becoming a sponsor, please contact head coach Roy Edwards at  You can register for Colorado Golf Day directly at and click on the registration link.

                 (The 2020-21 Buffaloes return all eight lettermen from last year's team, which had its spring season cut short beginning March 12 after the pandemic started spreading across the nation.  CU's four seniors, Victor Bjorlow, Andre Leveque, Ross Macdonald and Daniel O'Loughlin have all opted to return for a second chance at their final collegiate season of competition.)
