Thank you to all of our sponsors, participants and volunteers who contributed to making the 2017 outing such a huge success!
The golf outing is the department’s primary fund raising 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. The 2017 outing raised nearly $30,000 for those programs.
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. A registration fee of $125 per golfer pays for 18 holes of golf, cart rental, free lunch and lots of prizes.
Individuals or companies can support the event through a sponsorship or donation. One option is to sponsor a hole for $300 or $750 (the latter includes a team registration for four golfers). Beverage, lunch, breakfast and brat cookout sponsorships for $600 or $1,000 are also available and come with special event signage.
There is a live auction, featuring a variety of dairy-related items and sports memorabilia. Donations of auction items are welcome.
