The 2018 Dave Dickson Memorial Golf Classic


Mark your calendar now!

Need a distraction from bone-chilling temperatures? Start dreaming about warm spring days, lush green grass and the UW-Dairy Science 2018 golf outing, scheduled for Wednesday, May 16 at the award-winning University Ridge Golf Course just west of Madison. University Ridge is the home course of the UW Badgers and host to the PGA Tour’s American Family Insurance Championship in June.

The Dave Dickson Memorial Golf Classic is the department’s primary fundraising event.  All proceeds support the dairy science department’s undergraduate student scholarship program and high-impact learning activities such as student travel, hands-on learning laboratories and undergraduate research.  Last year’s outing raised nearly $30,000 for those programs.

The department is also seeking alumni or stakeholders to serve on the event’s planning committee. Committee members collaborate with department staff to plan and promote the Golf Classic and help raise funds.  If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Cathy Rook at or 608-263-3308.

The Golf Classic uses a scramble format, where each team member plays the ball closest to the hole after each shot.  The event is open to the public. More details on player fees and sponsorship opportunities will follow in February.
