Fox Ridge Golf Club to host AASV Foundation Golf Outing
The AASV Foundation has scheduled its annual Midwest Golf Outing for Wednesday, August 19, at Fox Ridge Golf Club in Dike, Iowa. Golfers attending the outing can expect a warm welcome at this new location, as the club is owned by AASV member Dr Steve Menke, who practices in Ottumwa, Iowa. Dr Menke’s son, Michael, manages Fox Ridge and serves as its head golf professional. The 18-hole championship course is considered one of northeast Iowa’s best public golf courses, featuring the variety of fine golf grasses typically seen only on private courses.
The foundation invites AASV members, swine industry stakeholders, and their guests to register a team (four golfers per team) for the friendly 18-hole best-ball contest. Proceeds from the event provide funding for the foundation’s endowment. Registrations are due August 5th and may be submitted on the adjacent form. A golf invitation is a wonderful way to recognize and spend time with valued clients, friends, and family members! Individuals and couples are welcome to register and will be assigned to a team.
Golfer check-in begins at 9:00 am the day of the event. Refreshments will be provided, along with an opportunity to hit a few practice balls on the driving range. The four-person team, best-ball competition begins with a shotgun start at 10:00 am. Box lunches and beverages will be supplied on-course, and an awards dinner will follow the golfing to recognize team and individual contest winners. Registration includes 18 holes of best-ball golf, cart rental, morning refreshments, lunch, and the concluding dinner and prizes.
Proceeds from the golf outing provide support for the AASV Foundation as it seeks to “Ensure our future…create a legacy” for swine veterinarians. Income generated by the endowment enables the foundation to fund programs such as the swine externship grants for veterinary students, travel stipends for students attending the AASV annual meeting, and funding for research with direct application to the profession.
