While golf is not recognized as a Canadian Interuniversity Sport, one way the golf team generates funds to support their golf programs is through their annual Fall Classic.  The event brings together teams of three from local clubs in a friendly competition of golf and skins in the company of a Bison Golf Team Member.  A wonderful dinner and reception follow with participation of all the bison players.  Cost of the event is $650.00, which includes a  $500.00 charitable donations receipt issued by the University of Manitoba.

Funds raised through the event assist with off season training at the golf dome, travel costs, competition entry fees, equipment, uniforms, accommodation and coaching.

Niakwa Country Club has been a strong supporter of university golf and the Fall Friendraising Classic from its inception in 2011.  Niakwa members and players through the program among many others include:
Spencer Harris      Terry James     Jill Hardy     Brian Kornelsen
Scott Markham      Liam Mulhall     Terry Reilly     Joey Ringaert
Clayton Salked       Burke Weibe

Bison Golf is committed to developing champions on and off the golf course.  Support of Bison Golf helps you connect with student athletes that represent our province and helps keep the best young Manitoba golfers in Manitoba so they can receive a quality and affordable education.  Ultimately Bison Alumni become leaders and contributing members of our community, living, working and supporting Manitoba Golf.

Help continue  Niakwa’s strong tradition and support of University Golf and the Fall Friendraising Classic  and join one of our Niakwa Teams for the event.
