Haslund Golf Classic Raises Scholarship Funds for TCC Students

October 28, 2015 - PASADENA, Texas

Texas Chiropractic College (TCC) wishes to congratulate the winners of the 2015 Dr. Stephen Haslund Memorial Golf Classic and thank all participants and sponsors for helping raise funds for scholarships given to TCC students. This year’s event, held at The Battleground at Deer Park on October 17, generated over $14,000 in funds to support the College’s mission of promoting excellence in the education of Practice-Ready doctors of chiropractic.

“We wish to thank the alumni, staff, students, and community that made this year’s golf tournament a success,” said Dr. Sandra Hughes, Dean of Institutional Advancement. “The Haslund Classic is a wonderful opportunity for friends to work together to help TCC advance patient-centered, evidence-informed chiropractic care, while also remembering Dr. Haslund and the contributions he made to the College.”

This year’s tournament featured 37 individual golfers who made up 10 teams. Players used a best ball, scramble format to compete. During group play, each player also had the chance to earn individual recognition for achieving the longest drive and closest to the pin of the competition. The winner of the longest drive, closest to the pin and three selected in a raffle earned one shot at the $1,000,000 hole-in-one event. While no player made the hole-in-one, the tournament as a whole was a success for the College and its supporters.

Sponsors for this year’s event include: Affinity Immediate Care, En Garde Protective Services, GSM Insurors, Hampton Tax Group, Maintenance of Houston, Dr. Brad McKechnie, OUM Chiropractor Program, the Sladek Family, Troluna Health Services, and Dr. Jack Wise.

“In years past, we’ve hosted this event during the summer convention, but scheduling this year’s tournament for the fall gave us great weather and a solid group of competitors that made event such an amazing experience,” says Dr. Hughes. “We look forward to hosting our friends next year and will continuing working to make the Haslund Classic an opportunity to get together to advance the mission of Texas Chiropractic College.”

The Dr. Stephen Haslund Memorial Golf Classic is named in memory of Dr. Stephen Haslund, a long time administrator and friend of Texas Chiropractic College. His enthusiasm for golf and commitment to TCC helped the annual golf tournament thrive and succeed for many years. In 2013, the golf tournament was renamed in his honor. In continuing Dr. Haslund’s legacy of helping students, the proceeds from this golf tournament will go to the Dr. Haslund Memorial Scholarship Fund.
