Frank Majczan '44 '04GP: An Ace on the Course

Rain or shine, 97-year-old Frank Majczan ’44 ’04GP volunteers for three hours every Monday at the Mulvihill Golf Learning Center on Lehigh’s Goodman Campus, where he puts out flags and rakes the bunkers and sandtraps.

“If [the weather is] really bad, we won’t open,” said Charles Unger, also a volunteer at the center, “but otherwise he’ll be there. You can just count on him.”

One of Majczan’s three sons, Ray, who drives him to and from the golf center, said his father volunteers because he wants to give back to the university that he loves so much.

Majczan, who received a bachelor of science degree in business administration, transferred to Lehigh after two years at Moravian College and played baseball, basketball and football. He’s in the Lehigh Athletics Hall of Fame for all three sports. He also received the Archibald Johnston Cup and has a total of eight varsity letters from Moravian and Lehigh.

Majczan was a superintendent at Bethlehem Steel for roughly 40 years until retirement.

When he is not helping at the golf center, he still plays a competitive game of golf, his son said.
