2019 MARE Scholarship Golf Tournament

The 2019 MARE Scholarship Golf Tournament was held on Tuesday, July 30th at the beautiful Osage National Golf Courses in Lake Ozark, Missouri. This year we had twenty-five  (25) teams and 97 golfers participating in the event.  The weather was amazing and the entire crew at Osage National was awesome. Proceeds from the event are dedicated to providing scholarship funds for students who plan to become teachers and return to rural Missouri schools to teach.  This past year, through the generous support of our corporate sponsors, hole sponsors, players and other patrons MARE was able to award $27,500.00 in scholarships.  Our plan is to grow the financial support for the tournament so that we can offer even more scholarships next year.  Click on the photo link (right) to see a scrolling list of team photos.
