35th Annual Blugold Golf Outing Set for August 1

EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (Blugolds.com) - The 35th annual UW-Eau Claire Blugold Booster Golf Outing will take place Monday, August 1 at Hillcrest Golf and Country Club.  

UWEC athletics officials anticipate 130 local professionals and boosters will participate in the fundraiser for Blugold athletics.  Nearly two dozen Blugold coaches and athletics staff, including new men’s basketball coach Kyle Green, and more than 50 student-athletes will cover the course, interacting and assisting with the boosters who will play an 18-hole scramble that begins at 12:15 p.m. with a shotgun start.  Nearly one-third of the scramble teams will win prizes.

The event receives significant underwriting from Mega! foods and Mega! Holiday, in addition to numerous beverage, cart and hole sponsors. 

There will be contests on all four par three holes with premium prizes going to the individual that gets closest to the pin on each hole.  Additional contests are planned for the other 14 holes.

Spots are still available for the outing but reservations must be made by Friday, July 22, said outing coordinator Tim Petermann.  The registration fee of $150 includes 18 holes of golf, two carts per fivesome, a souvenir Blugold hat and dri-fit shirt, brats, and beverages on the course, and a steak dinner after the golf at the course.  Additional contests and games will also take place throughout the afternoon.

A brochure providing details of the event and a registration form are available on the UW-Eau Claire athletics web site atwww.uwecblugolds.com .
