TOUCHSTONE ENERGY® OPEN
Beltrami Electric's Touchstone Energy® Open golf tournament is held in August each year at Castle Highland's Golf Course, north of Bemidji. This event is a fundraiser for the United Way of Bemidji Area.
Commitment to Community, one of the Seven Cooperative Principles, is a driving force behind this event. It is a standard we embrace as an integral element of the cooperative business model. We are proud that we make a difference in our communities and will continue to do so by promoting programs that improve the lives of those who live in the communities we serve.
The 17th Annual Beltrami Electric Touchstone Energy® Open was held Friday, August 20, 2021, at Castle Highlands Golf Course. The four-person scramble featured scheduled tee times for players, and a boxed lunch from Big Apple Bagels in Bemidji.
Beltrami Electric Cooperative would like to give a sincere thank-you to the business sponsors, the 96 golfers and the tournament volunteers on behalf of the United Way of Bemidji. This event wouldn’t be possible without their continued support!
