Oct. 9 golf outing benefits Engineers Without Borders

September 22, 2021

The Trine University chapter of Engineers Without Borders (EWB) will host a golf outing Saturday, Oct. 9, at the university’s Zollner Golf Course.

The event begins with lunch at noon, followed by a shotgun start at 1 p.m.

Cost is $100 per person for team play, which includes a box lunch, cart and 18-hole scramble. Hole sponsorships, which include a placard with the name of the sponsoring individual or company, are also available for $100 each.

To register by Oct. 2 or for more information, contact faculty advisor Tim Tyler, Ph.D., at tylert@trine.edu or (260) 665-4821.

EWB is an international relief organization that provides all engineering services and 95% of the construction cost for communities in developing communities to assist with basic infrastructure needs.

The Trine student chapter is in the fifth year of a multi-year commitment to assist a rural village in Ecuador to obtain a consistent source of drinking water during the dry season. Proceeds from the golf outing will be used to purchase the construction materials to build two spring boxes and install pipe and a submersible pump to collect untapped spring water.

A team of four Trine engineering students and a faculty member will travel to the village in March 2022 to assist the community with the construction and installation of these components.

Rated one of the top collegiate courses in the nation by GolfAdvisor.com, the 18-hole championship Zollner Golf Course is known for its beautifully landscaped, undulating fairways, scenic views and hilly terrain.
