Fox Ridge Golf Club -- Dike, Iowa -- Wednesday, August 25, 2010 -- 10:00 am – 6:00 pm
With a wish and a prayer for sunny weather, the AASV Foundation will return to Fox Ridge Golf Club in Dike, Iowa, for its 2010 Midwest Golf Outing, scheduled for Wednesday, August 25. Last year’s event at Fox Ridge was cut short by thunderstorms, so the location is being repeated to allow golfers to fully experience and enjoy the course. Fox Ridge Golf Club is owned by AASV member Dr Steve Menke, whose son Michael manages the club 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 (4 golfers per team) for the friendly 18-hole best-ball contest. Registrations are due August 11 and may be submitted on the adjacent form. Individuals and couples are welcome to register and will be assigned to a team.
Golfer check-in begins at 10:00 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 11:00 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 event 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.
