Big win for NMC Scholarship Open

TRAVERSE CITY — It was a win-win at the 35th Annual NMC Scholarship Open! The sold out event was held August 6th, 2015 at the Grand Traverse Resort and Spa.

Golfer Jeff Rademacher won the hole in one contest sponsored by Fox Motors. He made the impressive shot on hole 17 of The Bear Golf Course. That course is ranked as one of the most challenging in the country by Golf Digest. The winning shot earned Rademacher a new Mercedes Benz C300 valued at $52,000.

Students at Northwestern Michigan College were the big winners of the day. Golfers and 130 sponsors raised a record amount of more than $120,000 for Honors, Presidential and Academic Area Scholarships.

The NMC Scholarship Open is a top-ranking tournament in Northern Michigan held each August. Throughout its history, the event has raised more than a million dollars to benefit scholarship students at Northwestern Michigan College.
