We have moved to a new course, Brown Deer Golf Course. Although a Milwaukee County public course, this course is always the crown jewel of courses in the Milwaukee area. For many years this course hosted the GMO for the PGA tour. It is the course where Tiger Woods made his professional debut.
Our outing will be held in early June 2018. The outing will start at 8:00 am with a shotgun start. Lunch and awards will follow the outing immediately. This event is open to boys and girls ages 10-18 years old. Competitors will play against kids of their same gender in specified age brackets. Winners, who shoot a qualifying score or better and we are given a qualifying spot for that age group, that golfer is then eligible to compete at the Optimist International tournament that is held in July at PGA National in Palm Beach Gardens, FL.
Once we get the flyers printed up, we will distribute them to all clubs. If you can contact local courses as well as local high school teams, we would like to increase our participation numbers.
