2011 MLBA Golf Outing

Held Wednesday, July 13, 2011
at Dahlgreen Golf Club in Chaska

The 23rd Annual MLBA Golf Outing was held on July 13th at Dahlgreen Golf Course in Chaska. An added bonus for the 40 teams (160 golfers) was the absolutly perfect weather with sunny skies and temps in the 70’s. Adult beverage samples were available at every tee and two meals (Lunch before or “at the turn” and a Dinner Reception). A big thanks goes out to all the vendors and hole sponsors listed on the right who made this year’s golf outing so great. Special thanks to A-B and Illinois Casualty for sponsoring “Lunch at the Turn” and Ace Ice for providing the ice. Go to mlba.com for more photos.

This years four-person scramble tournament winners were “Team Club 57” in Waseca of Gene Miller, Daryn Spies, Steve Meyer and Chris Rugowski. Second place went to “Team Valu Plus Liquors” in Coon Rapids (Matt Besaas, Jake Hautman, John Zins and Dan Weimer). One special team grand prize was awarded this year to “Team HSC” that came in 23rd place (in honor of the 23rd annual MLBA Golf Outing. Plus, every golfer got a ‘goody bag’ full of things like 50ml samplers, tees, can coolers, etc, and every golfer got a door prize ranging from hats, shirts and balls to coolers, golf bags, neon signs, chairs, grills, etc. So you don’t have to be great golfers in order to get great prizes a the MLBA Golf Outing!
