St. Xavier University (SXU) will host its 25th annual SXU Golf Classic on Thursday, Aug. 12 at Silver Lake Country Club, 14700 S. 82nd Ave., in Orland Park.

Participants will enjoy “eye-opener” drinks, a full round of golf, lunch, beverages on the course, a cocktail reception and a steak dinner. Proceeds from the event raise funds for student scholarships.

Since 1997, the SXU Golf Classic has raised more than $1 million for student scholarships.

Registration will begin at 8 a.m., followed by a shotgun start at 9 a.m. The 19th Hole Cocktail Hour will be held at 3 p.m.

Registration for individual golfers is $250, and non-golfers can purchase a reception/dinner-only option for $50. Several sponsorships are also available.

“In its 25-year history, the Golf Classic has raised millions of dollars for student scholarships at SXU. We look forward to continuing this great tradition this year, which also aligns with St. Xavier’s 175th year of educational excellence. We have so much to celebrate alongside our incredible students, alumni, friends, faculty and staff,” said Erin Mueller, associate vice president of university advancement.

SXU alumni can enjoy a reduced rate of $175. Attendees can also participate in a raffle to win Cougar Classic prizes.
