WEST LIBERTY, W.Va., May 31, 2023 – The West Liberty University Foundation and WLU Athletics welcome area golfers to take part in the 10th annual Lary Loew Hilltopper Golf Scramble on Monday, June 19 at Oglebay’s Palmer Course. This four-person team tournament raises funds to benefit WLU Athletics and honors West Liberty alumnus Lary Loew.
Loew, a 1975 graduate of WLU and a 2011 Wall of Honor inductee, passed away in 2012 following a serious illness. The following year, the annual Hilltopper Athletics Golf Scramble was renamed in Loew’s honor with the support of his three sisters, Brenda Thomas, Sharon Saseen and Carol Loew.
The Loew sisters remain at the helm of the employee benefits agency that Lary founded – the Cornerstone Group. Since the inception of the Lary Loew Hilltopper Scramble, the Cornerstone Group has served as the event’s title sponsor and Lary’s sisters have volunteered their time to ensure that every golfer has a great day on and off the course.
“Our brother Lary loved West Liberty and the game of golf, so honoring his memory in this way makes perfect sense. Over the past 10 years, we have been grateful for the WLU alumni and friends of Lary who have supported the event and helped raise funds for WLU Football.”
On the date of the tournament, registration and lunch take place upon arrival at the Palmer Course, followed by a shotgun start at 1 p.m. In addition to 18 holes of golf, there will be the traditional on-course games and contests, complimentary drinks (3) and a special West Liberty University gift for all participants. A post-scramble dinner, catered by Undo’s Family Restaurant and Catering, will be held at Hess Shelter in Oglebay Park.
The golf tournament fee is $500 per four-person team. Sponsorship opportunities are available with proceeds benefiting the WLU football program.
