24th Annual Galen Nagle Memorial Golf Tournament

The 24th Annual Galen Nagle Memorial Golf Tournament drew a tournament-record number of alumni, coaches and Beavers Hockey supporters to the Bemidji Town & Country Club in remembrance of Galen Nagle, a late Beavers Hockey great.

A record 225 golfers (up from 208 in 2020) participated in the tournament's morning and afternoon flights, on-course games and online auction. All participants received tee gifts and enjoyed Stittsworth Meats brats grilled by Ace on the Lake, buns from Raphael's Bakery & Cafe and a meal following the round. Over $38,000 was raised by participants to support program expenses for BSU Men's Hockey.

The Galen Nagle Memorial Tournament raises funds in support of BSU’s men’s hockey program and the endowment fund set up in the name of the late Galen Nagle, a standout goaltender for the Beaver hockey team who helped lead the 1984 Beaver team to a perfect 31-0 season on their way to the program’s first NCAA Division II National Championship. Nagle unfortunately lost his life to cancer in 1996. A moment of silence was held for Nagle during the tournament.

On-course games included a closest-to-the-hole, long drive and a long putt competition as well as a hole-in-one contest for a new car courtesy of Dondelinger GM in Bemidji.

Presented by Sanford Health, the 2022 Galen Nagle Memorial Golf Tournament is scheduled for July 15, 2022.
