Annual Bowdoin Invitational Golf Tournament Celebrates the Student Athlete Experience—and Sets a Record Too

By Bowdoin News

The Bowdoin Invitational Golf Tournament has been a Polar Bear fan favorite since it began in 2014 as a fun and active community event.

From the 2023 Bowdoin Invitational

Over the years, the tournament has celebrated various priorities at the College.

This year, the Bowdoin community came together on September 11, 2023, in support of the student athlete experience at Bowdoin and the Polar Bear Athletic Fund and for the opportunity to network with alumni, parents, and guests while enjoying a round of golf at Brae Burn Country Club in West Newton, MA. 

The tournament drew more than one hundred golfers this year, from recent graduates to those from class as far back as the 1950s.

There were twenty players from the Class of 2010 and younger–a Bowdoin Invitational record.

In addition, twenty
coaches and staff members were on the course representing the Department of Athletics and the Polar Bear Athletic Fund.

A big thank you to the following for helping make the event possible and to everyone who came out to make it a great day.
