Wichita Aero Club Golf Classic.
The Wichita Aero Club will host its tenth annual Golf Classic on May 20, 2019. This year, registration will begin at 11 a.m., to be followed by a kickoff lunch at noon. We’ll tee off starting at 1:00 p.m. As you wrap up, join us for an Award Reception and more food!
As always, this WAC event supports our scholarships and educational initiatives and provides players with the opportunity to play on the same pristinely manicured course at Crestview Country Club that the PGA TOUR pros will have recently played during the Web.com Wichita Open. The WAC Golf Classic is always fun— with a Scramble format and several opportunities to take home some additional rewards! Players will compete in longest putt, longest drive and closest-to-the-pin contests and also have a chance to win a new car with a hole-in-one. We’re bringing back last year’s popular “Scholarship Shootout” that provides every golfer with a chance to win a substantial cash prize—and add a bonus to the scholarship fund at the same time!
The 7th and 17th Holes will be special stops for additional fun with margarita stands for an icy cold drink and a visit with fellow golfers.
Come play on the same course as the pros!
Wichita Aero Club Educational Initiatives
The Wichita Aero Club continues to promote aviation education and support aviation-related training and career development by offering scholarships and financial assistance to aviation-related institutions and students. The recipients of our scholarships are future aviation leaders—with a local connection.
Proceeds from yearly Trophy Gala and Golf Classic events allowed the Club to establish a scholarship fund in 2013. Currently, the Wichita Aero Club and Wichita Community Foundation collaborate on the awarding of two scholarships: the Edward W. Stimpson Scholarship and H. Dean Humphrey Scholarship. Both awards are designed for collegiate or technical school students who have already established an aviation-related major or career path. Both grants originally provided $2,000, but in 2016 we increased the awards to $5,000 each. While the Stimpson scholarship targets students who may wish to pursue engineering, technical, or flight related careers, the Humphrey scholarship is designed to underwrite the educational pursuits of students who are seeking a career in administration, communication or non-technical disciplines at aviation-related businesses. Both scholarships are designed to benefit students with a connection to Wichita or Kansas; they can be students at local institutions, graduates of local high schools who are attending colleges, universities or technical schools in other locations, employees who are concurrently enrolled in school, family members of employees, or interns of Wichita or Kansas-based aviation companies.
The Wichita Aero Club accepts gifts and donations toward its educational initiatives and works with the Wichita Community Foundation, a 501©3 tax-exempt charitable organization to administer its scholarship program and provide appropriate recognition to donors.
