Golf & Glory

Tee it high and let it fly alongside sports celebrities from Michigan and beyond! St. Louis Center supporters take over the UM Golf Course for a day of play, food, and the occasional brew while reminiscing on glory days past. Golf & Glory began in 1995 and was founded by Bill Wagner and chaired by Al Zangara. Norm Neuman is now the chair and the tournament's attendees have praised it as one of the finest of its kind in Southeast Michigan.

Lucky Platinum and Gold sponsorship foursomes have the honor of gaining a fifth, celebrity teammate for the day. Former NFL player, John Panelli was a longtime celebrity at this event and arranged for many other celebrities to attend. Celebrities who have played in this outing include Darren McCarty of the Detroit Red Wings, Olympic Gold Medalist Terry McDermott, and former Detroit Lions Coach Monte Clark. Last but most definitely not least, LPGA alum and inspiration Elaine Crosby consistently swings into action to support St. Louis Center at this scramble!

St. Louis Center is grateful for the efforts of Tom Nowatzke. He has been involved with the Golf & Glory Outing for the past 20 years. Tom has been influential in carrying on the legacy of the late Lions great, John Panelli, by bringing in members of the Detroit Lions Alumni Association, NFL Alumni, and various NFL and NCAA officials and other celebrities. Tom was drafted by the Detroit Lions in the 1960s and was later traded to the Baltimore Colts, where he starred in Super Bowl V in 1971 and scored a touchdown. St. Louis Center is proud to call Tom a member of its family.

Honorary Chairperson, George Blaha, the man and commentating voice behind TV and Radio for the Detroit Pistons and Radio for Michigan State Spartan Football, was the most recent celebrity host. Past event hosts include retired Mort Crim and Steve Garagiola of WDIV-TV, Channel 4.

To top off the event, Moveable Feast provides not only catering of the lunch (on the course and at the clubhouse) but also creates for dinner an array of pleasing appetizers followed by a plated salad, top-notch buffet, and assorted desserts. A live and silent auction of sports memorabilia remind attendees of why they're there – for the golf, glory, and most importantly St. Louis Center!
