FIA Forging Foundation Golf Outing

Event Date: Tuesday, August 23, 2022 to Tuesday, August 23, 2022


Join your forging industry colleagues on the golf course for the Annual FIA Forging Foundation (FIERF) Golf Outing. The FIA 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. 100% of your golf registration fee will be donated to FIA's Forging Foundation (FIERF) to fund student scholarships and educational research projects.

The outing will take place at Firestone Country Club South Course located in Akron, OH - 40 minutes south of downtown Cleveland. Firestone Country Club carries the presence of incredible golf history. From the first tournament hosted here in 1954 to the PGA and SPGA's long relationship with the club, notable champions like Tommy Bolt, Arnold Palmer and Tom Nieporte all staked their claim to fame on Firestone's famous courses, bunkers and fairways. These spectacular golf courses are sure to draw you into their historic mystique as you wind your way around the beautifully arranged holes. Noted for its length, the par 70, 7,783-year South Course includes a series of intimidating, long par-4 holes and one of the longest par 5s anywhere.
