Golf Tournament
Donald Ross Course at French Lick

Sunday, September 9 - Shotgun Start 10:00 am

Test your game on the beautiful Donald Ross Course at French Lick. Originally constructed in 1917 by world-renowned architect Donald Ross, the legendary course has been home to many regional and national tournaments, including the 1924 PGA Championship. Ross is revered for his links-type courses with deep green-side bunkers and graceful, undulating greens. Each golfer will receive a box lunch at the golf course, and beverages will be available throughout the day. Awards will be presented during lunch on Monday. See you on the fairways!

Future Leadership Division Silent Auction and Dinner
Monday, September 10 – 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

It gets bigger and better every year! The IBA Future Leadership Division’s annual silent auction is the place to be on Monday evening. You will have the opportunity to bid on treasures such as event tickets, golf items, decorative pieces, sports memorabilia and specialty items. We will once again use electronic bidding through mobile phone, or with the help of an FLD member equipped with iPad. To enhance your auction experience, we will be distributing silent auction information to begin the bidding a couple of days in advance. All funds raised will benefit Indiana BANKPAC. Don’t miss this chance to do some quality shopping, while supporting the PAC that supports Indiana banking.
