Golf to host Don Mershon Classic

The Classic will be held Saturday through Monday at Indian Valley Country Club. The event is in its eleventh season, and, for the second straight year, the classic will showcase both men’s and women’s teams.

"We are really excited about this tournament," said Lehigh head coach Kelly Gutshall. "This is a great opportunity for our teams to play against some top competition, and to be able to host the event on such a marvelous course is truly wonderful."

The tournament features 17 men’s entries and nine women’s squads. The event was named for the late Don Mershon, former Vice President of Lutron Electronics and friend of the Lehigh golf program. Lutron, a corporate partner of Lehigh Athletics, has its worldwide headquarters in nearby Coopersburg.

The Don Mershon Classic gets underway with a practice round on Saturday. Tournament play begins on Sunday, with a 1:00 shotgun start. The two-day, 36-hole event wraps up with a 9:00 shotgun start on Monday.
