One of northern Michigan’s premier golf outings, the NMC Scholarship Open provides access to higher education through merit-based Honors, Presidential, Academic Area, and other scholarships. This tournament has raised more than $1.9 million since its inception in 1982.

Golfers and sponsors like you can make a tremendous difference in the lives of students while playing 18 holes of golf with good friends, great food, prizes, and fun!

This year’s event, the 39th annual, will be in memory of Jim Beckett, NMC volunteer extraordinaire. Thank you to our Tournament Sponsors the William G. Janis & Susanne M. Janis Family Foundation and the Friends of Jim Beckett. View a complete list of sponsors »

The Scholarship Open is on! We're working to plan a safe and fun event in 2020. Modifications to the format may occur in order to comply with health and safety guidelines. Golfers and sponsors will be notified of these changes. Thank you for supporting scholarships during this critical time!
