C of O receives $500K via Legends of Golf

Posted online

College of the Ozarks is utilizing funds from the fifth Bass Pro Shops Legends of Golf Tournament to improve the school’s Patriots Park.

Valorie Coleman, public relations director for C of O, said the private college received $500,000 from this year’s event, bringing total fundraising to over $2.5 million from the golf tournaments held at Johnny Morris’ Big Cedar Lodge.

This year, funds helped pay for a Korean War memorial, which was dedicated at C of O on April 18. Other memorials in Patriots Park include the Lest We Forget display of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, and the Missouri Vietnam Veterans Memorial.

C of O also contributed 203 volunteers to assist with the Legends of Golf event.

During the April 17-22 Legends of Golf tournament, the team of Kirk Triplett and Paul Broadhurst won the signature event.
