Rich Harvest Farms To Host Sept. 15-16 Northern Intercollegiate Golf Tournament

Rich Harvest Farms in Sugar Grove will once again be hosting Northern Illinois University’s Men’s golf team’s annual tournament: the 2018 Northern Intercollegiate.

The two-day tournament takes place from Sept. 15 to Sept. 16 and brings in 14 of the best up-and-coming teams to the area.

At the last Northern Intercollegiate, Marquette University dominated the field. The Golden Eagles set a school record score for the 54-hole event, finishing with a 32-under-par 832, and student athlete Oliver Farrell shared co-medalist honors with Virginia’s Ashton Poole by shooting 14-under-par.

Marquette will be returning to defend its title.

The event is free and open to the public.

Jerry Rich, the owner and designer of Rich Harvest Farms, is encouraging area golf fans to attend.

“My gates are not open very often, so if you have not yet had the chance to walk my grounds and enjoy a 300 acre showcase of nature and agriculture, the Northern Intercollegiate is the time to do it,” he said.
