The Golic Sub-Par Classic was established to host friends, family and colleagues from around the world Notre-Dame network and give back to nonprofit organizations in the South Bend Area. The four event beneficiaries of the inaugural event are The Logan Center, Center for the Homeless, Food Bank of Northern Indiana and the South Bend Animal Resource Center.
The roots of the Golic family lie deep in the South Bend Area that made the selection of Notre-Dame campus an easy choice for the venue.
Mike Golic and his wife Christine first met while attending Notre-Dame and Saint Mary’s College, respectively. Their two sons, Mike Jr. and Jake, followed in their father’s footsteps and played football for the Irish, while their daughter Sydney was a member of the university’s swim team.
“When we first started discussing the possibility of hosting a charity event, we knew two things were certain: we would host it South Bendand we would have fun” Christine Golic said. “After countless memories and milestones in our family history unfolding here on campus, South Bend will always be our family home, and we value giving back to the community that has shaped each of us. We are excited to announce the start of the Golic Sub-Par Classic, an event that will create many more memories while raising money for causes we care about.”
The Golic family is accompanied by their friends in the Notre-Dame Football and track and field community, former teammates in the NFL, Olympic athletes, musicians and current DraftKings colleagues of Golic Sr. and Jr. for several decades Notre-Dame Football will be represented by former players present, including Bob Crable, KyleRudolf, Tom Thaler, Ryan Harris, Brady Quinn, Julian loveand many more.

Coach Markus Freiman reminded everyone that they still belong Notre-Dame Family. We want to channel that same energy and use it to provide that South Bend community the same love and support they have given us as athletes and students.”
