Golf for Scholarships

Golf Header

Golf for Scholarships outings are the primary fund-raising activities for the Ohio AgriBusiness Association Educational Trust scholarship program. Each summer the Golf for Scholarships committee plans two golf events: the first event is held in mid-June in northeast Ohio and the second event is held in mid-August in western Ohio. 

The event is an 18-hole, scramble-style outing, with teams of 4 golfers. Teams can win prizes through contest holes and the putting contest. Raffle tickets for prizes and a 50/50 drawing are also available during the event. 


The golf events provide OABA’s membership the opportunity to be recognized as a sponsor, while also raising money for aspiring professionals as they obtain a college education in an agriculture-related field. A wide range of sponsorships are available to fit any budget. Sponsorship opportunities include:

  • Event Raffle Sponsor - $1,500 
    • Company logo on: Event raffle ticket, Event Sponsor sign, Lunch placemat
    • Company name on: Lunch banner, 1 hole sign
