24th Annual Rob Regier Memorial Golf Tournament

Regier Family 10/16/15

Fri., Sept. 16, 2022
1 p.m. Tee-Off
Colbert Hills, Manh., Kan.

This annual tournament honors Rob Regier, a 1988 K-State pre-dentistry graduate who died of cancer in 1992, when he was just 26 years old. Hosted by Rob's family, this 4-person scramble at Colbert Hills in Manhattan, Kansas, also offers a steak dinner, silent auction, souvenir item and prizes. It was started in 1998 by some of Rob’s Sig Ep fraternity brothers in Kansas City. Rob's parents Les and Sandy continued it with help from Rob's twin brother Randy and Randy's wife Juli and daugher Ryann. Sadly, Les passed away in February 2018 after a long battle with melanoma.
