Aviation’s Golf Tournament Now Taking Entries

Utah Valley University’s Aviation Science Department will host “Swings for Wings” Benefit Golf Tournament


Diamond Aircraft Industries, Inc., is proud to be the sponsor of Utah Valley University (UVU) and the Aviation Science Department’s “Swings for Wings” benefit golf tournament to be held at Talon’s Cove in Saratoga Springs on Monday, June 14th.


What is most exciting about the “Swings for Wings” tournament is that 100% of the net proceeds will be used to benefit UVU’s Aviation Science Department students (no administrative fees will be charged). The proceeds will help provide scholarships, enrich educational experiences, procure educational and lab equipment, allow student participation in national and regional events, and supplement other funds needed to advance these programs.


Tournament sign-in is at 7:30 a.m. with a shotgun start at 8 a.m.  Cost is $100 per player, which includes 18 holes of captain’s choice (best ball) golf, golf cart, goody bag and a chicken cordon bleu luncheon after the tournament.

Even if you are not able to participate in the golf tournament, please sponsor a UVU student or two.  This will allow local community leaders to mingle with our outstanding students. Single-hole sponsorships are also available at $1,000.

The Aviation Science Department is UVU’s second largest department, boasting approximately 275 local students and 1,800 online students from across the nation. It offers degrees both as a Professional Pilot or in Aviation Administration.  For Professional Pilot majors, UVU offers all certifications and ratings from Private Pilot (recreational flying) through Airline Transport Pilot.  UVU’s pilot training program accounts for over 60,000 takeoffs and landings annually at the Provo Municipal Airport and is the primary reason the Federal Aviation Administration granted permission for the construction of a new control tower there. Graduates from these UVU programs are currently working in various aviation postitions throughout the world. Our professional pilot graduates are flying for virtually all regional and international airlines servicing the United States.  For more information about this outstanding program see www.flyuvu.com or www.uvu.edu/aviation/
