Head Coach John Barnes and the Youngstown State women's basketball program are inviting golfers to participate in its annual outing on Saturday, Aug. 29, at Knoll Run Golf Course in Lowellville, Ohio.

The fund-raising event will be a four-person scramble format with a 9 a.m. shotgun start. Registration and breakfast will begin at 7:30 a.m.

The $340 entry fee for foursomes – or $85 for individuals – includes 18 holes of golf, a riding cart, skins and mulligans, breakfast, lunch, a buffet dinner and prizes. Guests wishing to attend only the buffet portion at 2:30 p.m. may do so for $15.

There are also two sponsorship levels for the outing. Both Horizon and Penguin Level sponsors will have their company logo included on the sponsorship banner that will be prominently displayed at the outing, a hole sign and one foursome. Horizon Level sponsors will also receive four courtside tickets to all women's basketball home games during the 2015-16 season as well as a basketball autographed by the team. The Horizon package is an investment of $1,000, and the Penguin package is an investment of $500. Hole sponsorships are available for $100, and prize donations are also appreciated.

There will also be a Chinese auction with a chance to win great prizes and a 50/50 raffle. Tickets will be sold throughout the day, and winners will be drawn at dinner.
