Join us Monday, July 24 at Blackhawk Country Club in the Madison suburb of Shorewood Hills for a scramble golf tournament to support winners of the 2024 Wisconsin Governor’s Business Plan Contest and to celebrate with members and friends of the Wisconsin Technology Council.

Members of the UW-Madison golf team will be on hand to take part in the outing on the course. Their presence is courtesy of The Varsity Collective, which facilitates “name/image/likeness” opportunities for student athletes at UW-Madison.

Click here to sign up for the tournament, which will feature a noon shotgun start; box lunch; carts; driving range access with shuttle service; prizes and an end-of-day reception. Proceeds will go to fund prizes for winners in the 2024 business plan contest, which is produced by the Tech Council, a 501c3 tax-exempt organization.

An individual can golf for $195; a foursome can golf for $750. Not a golfer? Join us for the buffet and cash-bar social hour following the tournament. The reception-only price is $50.

Kayser Automotive Group will sponsor a “hole-in-one” contest on all Par 3 holes, with a top prize of $15,000 toward a new vehicle on the primary hole and other prize packages (seven-day Cruise, Yeti cooler and a set of drivers) on other Par 3 holes. In addition, free six-month subscription cards for Golf Digest will be available to all golfers.

Blackhawk Country Club celebrated its 100th year in 2021. This private course is within the Village of Shorewood Hills, which is surrounded by Madison and nestled along the shores of Lake Mendota. Play at Blackhawk offers a challenging 18 holes, well-manicured greens, a picturesque clubhouse and spectacular views of the lake and surrounding neighborhoods. The club hosted the Wisconsin Women’s State Championship in June.

While there are no official U.S. Golf Association rules governing “scrambles,” most such events feature team members teeing off, choosing the team’s best ball for their next shot and continuing until completion of the hole. No good shots on your team? Mulligans are available for a price!

Tournament participation will also include: Range balls provided on practice tee; complete bag service; on-course beverage service; scoring and results sheets; course staff will lead groups to proper tee assignments for shotgun start.
