A few golf foursomes and sponsorship opportunities are still available for you to participate in this year’s UW-Madison Animal & Dairy Science Golf Classic! This year’s outing is scheduled for Tuesday, May 17, at the award-winning University Ridge Golf Course in Verona.
University Ridge is the home course of the UW Badgers and the PGA Champions Tour, American Family Insurance Championship in June.
The golf outing is the department’s primary fundraising event. Proceeds from the Animal & Dairy Sciences Golf Outing support undergraduate student scholarships and high impact learning experiences such as intercollegiate competitive teams, student travel, hands-on learning laboratories and undergraduate research. Previous outings have raised nearly $20,000 for those programs.
The Golf Classic is a scramble, where each team member plays the ball closest to the hole after each shot. Registration includes 18 holes of golf, cart rental, lunch and prizes for a fee of $160 per golfer.
Don’t know how to golf? The afternoon portion of the event will include music, tailgate games and a putting competition.
Companies and individuals may support the event through sponsorships or donations. Remaining opportunities include individual hole sponsorships for $400 and lunch sponsorship for $1,000. Each of these sponsorships include special signage at the event.
“It’s a great way to socialize and have fun, but more importantly, the event benefits our students. This is an opportunity to invest in the future of the dairy industry,” says Kent Weigel, chairman of the UW-Madison Department of Animal & Dairy Sciences.
