ST. LOUIS – The 40th annual Billiken Golf Classic, presented by Stifel, was held May 7 and was a rousing success.

More than 270 golfers participated in the tournament, which was held at the Country Club of St. Albans. Funds raised benefit the Saint Louis University Department of Athletics.

“On behalf of the Department of Athletics, thank you to all the participants, supporters and volunteers who helped make the 40th Annual Billiken Golf Classic the best one yet,” SLU Director of Athletics Chris May said. “We had a beautiful day at the Country Club of St. Albans as were able to bring the SLU community together to celebrate another great year of Billiken Athletics. The Billiken Golf Classic is an important annual event as we strive to meet our strategic objectives of educating our student-athletes, competing at a high level and building community.”

Following golf was a reception that included a live auction, and SLU men’s basketball coach Travis Ford and women’s basketball coach Lisa Stone addressed those in attendance.

The Department of Athletics would like to give a special thank you to the presenting sponsor, Stifel, and the golf cart sponsor, Clayco.
