MANHATTAN, Kan. - The 39th annual Colbert-Fogler Golf Classic benefiting the home of K-State men's and women's golf will be held Friday and Saturday, September 5-6, at Colbert Hills Golf Club.

The 2014 edition of the Colbert-Fogler Golf Classic will be unique in that the Colbert Hills Hall of Fame will be unveiled.
