Cyclone Gridiron Club

The annual Mike Lacey Cyclone Gridiron Golf Classic and Banquet Outing is held in memory of the late Mike Lacey, a 1966 ISU grad, whose tireless commitment to Cyclone athletics inspired him to become the founding president of the CGC.  Mike passed Jan. 20, 2012, but his legacy lives on at this spirited event.

Held at Dennis Albaugh’s exclusive private golf course, Talons of Tuscany, join us for a great day of four-person best shot golf with Iowa State football coaches, alumni, fans, and CGC supporters in Ankeny, Iowa. The event also includes lunch, dinner, and a program featuring head coach Matt Campbell. Other elements of the event include silent and live auctions, a putting contest, men’s and women’s long drive and longest putt competitions.  Dinner only registrations also available for the non-golfer.
