Golf15-collageThe MLBA is pleased to announce that for the 28th consecutive year we will be holding our annual “all-industry” golf outing on Wednesday, July 13th at beautiful Dahlgreen Golf Club, just west of Chaska on US Highway 212.

This extremely popular event sells out every year, so if you want to get in this year’s golf outing, don’t delay, sign up today! A registration is on the previous page. Golfers will be able to sample products from wine, beer and spirits vendors while on the course. There are several “contest holes” including longest drive, longest putt, closest to the pin, closest to the line and two $10k hole-in-one contests!

The top 3 teams in the scramble format will get prizes donated by our great Allied Members and a “grand” prize will go out to the team that finishes 28th (for the 28th annual golf day). Even the team that finishes last usually gets a prize, so you don’t have to be great golfers to get great prizes. Plus, each participant will receive a “goodie bag” filled with great prizes.

The shotgun start begins at Noon sharp. Aside from free beverages on course, golfers can take advantage of a free lunch “at the turn” sponsored by Anheuser-Busch. After the tournament (around 5:30pm), golfers will receive a nice banquet dinner and awards ceremony sponsored by Illinois Casualty Company. It’s a full day of fun and it’s a day members look forward to every year. We hope to see you there!

 


From Last Year’s Golf Outing:

The 27th Annual MLBA Golf Outing was again blessed with absolutely perfect weather for golf with temps in the low 70’s and partly cloudy skies. A record number of vendors greeted the golfers on every tee and there were multiple vendors on several tees.

The day started out with the 144 golfers getting a goodie bag with several hats and shirts as well as product sample and can coolers, tee sets and much more donated by our great sponsors listed below.

Golfers were then treated to lunch either before the Noon start or when they came trough the clubhouse all thanks to sponsors Illinois Casualty Company and Anheuser-Busch. After the round was completed, several prizes were awarded for 1st – 3rd place teams in the Scramble as well as a Grand Prize for the 27th place team and several contests like longest drive and closest to the pin, etc.

A fine dinner was served compliments of our great Allied Member, Illinois Casualty Company. See below for our list of sponsors and also the winning teams. The 2016 MLBA Golf Outing will be held on Wednesday, July 13, 2016.
