21st Annual Scholarship Golf Outing
The Wisconsin Park and Recreation Association Foundation's 21st Annual Scholarship Golf Outing will take place on Thursday, September 12, 2019 at The Oaks Golf Course, Cottage Grove, WI.
Mark your calendars and plan to join us for a great time while at the same time helping the WPRA Foundation to raise monies for the parks and recreation profession! Revenues from the golf outing, as well as other fundraising activities during the year, allow the WPRA Foundation to provide financial assistance to WPRA’s professional and student grant and scholarship programs, the WPRA Leadership Academy, as well as the WPRA Annual Conference. The event is a great opportunity for you to enjoy some social recreation, relaxation, and networking with fellow professionals and commercial vendors in the parks and recreation field.
This year’s event will again feature open division four-person scramble play. Team Awards will be given to the three teams with the lowest score, and three additional teams to be drawn at random. Other new golf events/contests are in the planning stages, but we will continue to offer the Leadership Academy Putting Contest, Yellow Ball Contest, and much more!! There will also be Silent Auction and Raffle Prizes including golf equipment, as well as gift certificates to various golf courses. The 2019 Golf Outing includes a Cowboy Theme With Special Prizes for the Best Dressed Foursomes!
In addition to 18 holes of golf, your registration will include the golf event favor, course refreshments, a 19th hole social, and Awards Banquet Dinner. New this year, the golf committee is holding a “Post Golf Social!” with refreshments and music at the hotel after the awards dinner. We have 15 rooms reserved with a room block at the nearby Holiday Inn Express & Suites on the east side of Madison. There will be free shuttles taking folks back to the hotel at 6:00 p.m. after the awards dinner, and back to your vehicles at 9:00 a.m. Friday morning. Please check the brochure for more details. BOOK YOUR ROOM RESERVATIONS BY AUGUST 16TH to get the $119 double queen room rate.
Checks can be made payable to the WPRA Foundation, and mailed to the Jackson Area Community Center, N165 W20330 Hickory Lane, Jackson, WI 53037. PLEASE NOTE THE SPECIAL EARLY BIRD PRICING DEADLINE OF AUGUST 16TH!
Thank you for supporting the WPRA Foundation, and we look forward to seeing you on September 12th!
