23rd Annual Rob Regier Memorial Golf Tournament

Regier Family 10/16/15

Fri., Sept. 17, 2021
(K-State Family Weekend)
1 p.m. Tee-Off
Colbert Hills, Manhattan, Kan.

The 23rd Annual Rob Regier Memorial Golf Tournament gets a mulligan! After having to cancel the 2020 tournament due to COVID-19, the Regier family is excited to host the next tournament on Fri., Sept. 17, 2021.

This annual golf tournament honors Rob Regier, a 1988 K-State pre-dentistry alum 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, offers prizes and a steak dinner. 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.

2021 Tournament Details

Tournament registration will open at 11 a.m. and tee-off will be a shotgun start of four-person teams at 1 p.m. Prizes will be awarded. An awards banquet, featuring a steak dinner and silent auction, will follow the tournament onsite at Colbert's restaurant. 

Cost is $150/person. This includes green fees, half a cart, dinner, prizes and a souvenir gift. You can assemble your own team of four or be put with others. Advance registration and payment is greatly appreciated to help the tournament run more smoothly and minimize cash transactions. (Brochure with registration form coming soon.)


We appreciate all the work the Regier family does, and we thank them and all the participants and sponsors for their generosity and commitment to K-State cancer research.
