The 57th annual Bobcat North Dakota Open was held Aug. 27-29 at the Fargo Country Club, Fargo, N.D. The tournament brings amateur and pro golfers to compete while also supporting The Village Family Service Center, a local nonprofit agency providing regional community behavioral health services. Bobcat Co., West Fargo, N.D., has served as the major corporate sponsor for the tournament since 1984.
Bobcat has donated more than $1.15 million to the organization since 1984. Andre Metzger was this year’s champion. The three-time Bobcat Open winner secured a one-shot victory in the last stop on the Dakotas Tour. He received $10,000 in purse winnings and a paid $4,500 entry fee to the Korn Ferry Qualifying School.
“Bobcat has been proud to sponsor the region’s premier professional golf event, all while helping to raise funds to make a positive impact on the lives of children and families in our communities and build a brighter future,” said Mike Ballweber, president, Doosan Bobcat North America.
The Village Family Service Center agency works with children and families throughout North Dakota and Minnesota, helping area residents improve their lives through individual and family counseling and adoption services and mentoring programs such as Big Brothers Big Sisters.
“We greatly appreciate our longstanding partnership with Bobcat and other sponsors of the Bobcat North Dakota Open,” said Jeff Pederson, president and CEO, The Village Family Service Center. “We look forward to continuing to provide lifechanging services to thousands of people and families in the communities we serve each year.”
The open is part of the Dakotas Tour, a 17-event, professional golf tour played in the states of Minnesota, Iowa and North and South Dakota.
