Support BSU Women's Athletics this August

The Howe-Welle Women's Athletics Golf and Cornhole Tournament returns to the Bemidji Town & Country Club on August 27, 2021.

All proceeds from the golf and cornhole tournaments and silent auction will directly benefit BSU’s nine women’s athletic programs. Check below for information about the golf and cornhole tournaments. 

If you are unable to attend the event, or would like to offer additional support to BSU women's athletics, you can sponsor the event here.

A reboot of the long-running Lady Beaver golf tournament that supported women’s athletics at BSU from 1983-2010, the Howe-Welle tournament is named in honor of two of the founders of the tournament – former BSU women’s basketball (1964-76), tennis coach (1976-86) and pioneer of women’s athletics at the university, Dr. Ruth Howe, and longtime BSU athletics supporter Jeanette Welle.
