18th Annual Jailhouse Scramble

History of the Jailhouse Scramble

The JAILHOUSE SCRAMBLE had its beginning in 1995 when a few correctional officers and a few UNO Criminal Justice Professors decided to use their Arbor Day Holiday to play some golf at Shoreline Golf Course in Carter Lake, Iowa. There were just two foursomes that day. Janet Porter, Ph.D., retired CJ Professor, asked Bob Houston to spearhead a movement to expand the event and she contributed funds to help support the effort. This collaboration created the UNO/UNL Criminal Justice Education Fund which benefits undergraduate and graduate students. The Scramble has been held at several venues through the years and has now settled into Tiburon Golf Course. The event has more than 90 golfers participating each year.

Thank You for your Sponsorship of the JAILHOUSE SCRAMBLE. The students greatly appreciate your support!!!
