East Carolina University

East Carolina Alumni Association's Purple Gold Golf Open

Since its establishment in 2005, the East Carolina Alumni Association scholarship program has awarded 272 scholarships totaling over $385,000. These scholarships are funded by contributions from generous alumni, along with participants of the golf tournament in the fall and the Pirate Alumni Road Race and Fun Run in the spring.* Your participation in these fundraisers ensures that we can continue to grow our scholarship program. 

Enjoy a day on the links with fellow ECU supporters for a game of golf and plenty of prizes! With trophies awarded to the teams with the lowest gross score and lowest net score, hole-in-one prizes on all par 3 holes, longest drive, and closest-to-the-pin, your swing may land you a bounty. Acura also sponsors a hole-in-one vehicle contest! Best of all, it’s for a good cause—ECU scholarships! 

The winning golf team (lowest gross score) will have the opportunity to represent ECU and play at legendary Pinehurst No. 2 and No. 4 in the Acura College Alumni Team Championship held October 26-29, 2017. The top six teams will win prizes and the winning team will be crowned the National College Alumni Team Champions. 

*Proceeds fund annual scholarships with any balance supporting the scholarship endowment. No refunds will be issued after 9/11/17.
