2024 FIERF Forging Foundation Golf Outing

Join your forging industry colleagues on the golf course for the Annual Forging Foundation (FIERF) Golf Outing. The Forging Foundation funds industry-relevant research to advance the science of forging and engages students through curriculum, experiential learning, and scholarships to pursue careers in the forging supply chain.

Funds raised from this golf outing will support the Forging Foundation (FIERF)

The outing will take place at the Sand Ridge Golf Club located in Charon, OH - 45 minutes east of downtown Cleveland. The history of Sand Ridge Golf Club speaks volumes about vision and dedication, nestled in the scenic surroundings of Chardon, Ohio. Established in 1998, the club was born from the collective devotion of its founders to establish a top-notch golfing venue in Northeast Ohio. At the core of its creation was the quest for architectural excellence, reflected in the acclaimed course design by the globally renowned golf course architect, Tom Fazio. The Sand Ridge Golf Course has been honored to host a variety of prestigious golf tournaments such as The Egg Invitational, The Conway Cup, and The Korn Ferry Tour Qualifying School. Placed in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, these stunning golf courses showcase the exquisite beauty of rolling countryside, dramatic elevation shifts, distinct wetlands, and an array of mature hardwoods. The remarkable 350-acre land is guaranteed to surpass expectations in every respect.
