Scramble for Scholarships

About the Scramble for ScholarshipsGolfer Putting

Since 1996, the Alpena Community College Foundation has conducted its annual Scramble for Scholarships, raising more than $400,000 and providing hundreds of students with much-needed scholarships. In 2004, the tournament was renamed to memorialize a good friend, community leader, and ACC Foundation Trustee, Robert M. Granum. During his time on the ACC Foundation Board of Trustees, Bob freely gave his financial expertise and greatly contributed to its growth. The Scramble takes place every year in August, at the River's Edge Golf Club. The tournament is a 4-person best ball scramble where golfers of all skill levels can enjoy themselves.

The tournament is a 4-person best ball scramble where golfers of all skill levels can enjoy themselves. Men under age 60 will shoot from the blue tees and those 60 and over shoot from the white tees. Ladies will shoot from
the gold tees.

Golf packages to premier courses will be awarded to the first, second, and third place teams, in addition to the best score for a mixed team. Due to COVID-19 and the hardship of local businesses, we will not award door prizes this year.
