One lucky golfer could win an All New 2016 Civic LX Sedan with a hole in one during the Charlie Miller Bowtie Classic Golf Outing and Knowledge Open to be held Sept. 3 at Forest Hills Golf Course.
The hole-in-one prize is sponsored by Honda Motorwerks, your La Crosse Honda dealer, offering new and used cars, as well as a complete service department.
To win the car, golfers will get one attempt from the Blue Tee at the beautiful, rolling Hole No. 7, a shot of approximately 173 yards.
In addition, golfers will be eligible to win prizes on three other Par 3 holes during the tournament. Prizes are expected to include golf equipment or gift certificates, as well as an iPad Mini. The final prize list will be determined just prior to the Sept. 3 event.
Registrations are due Aug. 26. The registration fee is $85, including a round of golf, power cart and a lunch to follow. Click here to download a registration form.
About 100 golfers are expected for the fourth Bowtie Classic, which is a major fundraiser for the La Crosse Public Education Foundation. The event honors the late Dr. Charles Miller III, a foundation co-founder and a longtime member of the Board of Education for the School District of La Crosse. Dr. Miller was a surgeon at what is now Gundersen Health System. He died unexpectedly while playing racquetball in May 2011.
Teams compete not just on golf skills in the scramble format. The event includes a unique feature: the Knowledge Open Challenge. At each hole, questions are asked by National Honor Society students. Each event foursome, as a team, answers the questions during its round of play, earning one point off their golf score for each correct answer. Teams’ final scores are based on their golf game as well as their performance on the quiz.
