he 30th Annual Lake State Classic Golf Tournament and auction, in support of academic activities and athletic programs at LSSU, will be held June 14 at the Wild Bluff Golf Course in Brimley, Michigan with a 10 a.m. shotgun start.
This event is for everyone, regardless of golf skills. It will be a special year for the Classic as the LSSU Foundation, Soo Blueliners, and Laker Athletics are joining forces! Funds raised will assist the LSSU Foundation, Laker Hockey, and all Laker sports.

Items up for auction include autographed items from former professional golfers Jack Nicklaus and Annika Sorenstam, Red Wings tickets and apparel, an anchor necklace from Monocle Jewelers, a plane tour of the Straits of Mackinac, kayaking trips, Laker apparel and much more! Proceeds from the auction will be earmarked to the respective Laker sports or the Fund for LSSU.
“We have received many requests from past participants and sponsors to host the event at Wild Bluff,” said Tom Coates, Executive Director, LSSU Foundation. “We listened and are pleased to begin a partnership with the Soo Blueliners within the Lake State Classic.”
There will be an announcement about this year's Classic Circle Inductee very soon. The Classic Circle is designed to honor those who have supported the fundraising goals of the event and have encouraged others to do so.
