Lucky golfer could win Honda Fit at Bowtie Classic


One lucky golfer could win a Honda Fit with a hole in one during the Charles Miller Bowtie Classic Golf Outing and Knowledge Open to be held Sept. 5 at Forest Hills Golf Course.

HMWLogo_New-web_largeThe 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 this year, 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. 5 event.

Registrations are due Aug. 28 — at a cost of $75 per golfer. Click here to download a registration form.

About 100 golfers are expected for the third 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 various holes on the course, questions are asked by National Honor Society students. Each event foursome, as a team, answers the questions during its round of play. Teams’ final scores are based on their golf game as well as their performance on the quiz.
