BRIGHTON — The Engineering Society of Detroit’s third annual golf outing successfully dodged oncoming storms Monday to support the ESD Institute’s work to fill the future Michigan work force pipeline with qualified engineers and tech workers.
Shortly after noon, more than 150 golfers hit the links at the two courses at the beautiful Oak Pointe Country Club west of Brighton.
Around five hours later, they returned — just ahead of a nasty line of rainstorms.
Conditions were warm, muggy and windy, making the Oak Pointe courses even more of a challenge.
Back in the cool confines of the Oak Pointe clubhouse, the golfers then enjoyed refreshments, dinner and prizes.
ESD executive vice president Darlene Trudell noted that the ESD is all about the future of Michigan’s science, technology, engineering and math/manufacturing professionals. And so was this outing. All of
the golf proceeds go to the David A. Skiven Leadership Fund to support the ESD Institute’s efforts to fill the STEM pipeline. More is available about ESD, its Institute and the Skiven Leadership Fund at
