The weather is finally warming up, and it is time to get reacquainted with your favorite golf clubs. The Angus Foundation is set to host the 18th annual golf tournament on July 9 at Pleasant View Golf Course in Middleton, Wis., in conjunction with the 2018 National Junior Angus Show (NJAS). This event helps fund educational opportunities, research initiatives and Angus youth.

“Year after year, we continue to have excellent turnout from our Angus Foundation supporters at the annual golf tournament, and we appreciate their ongoing support of our mission,” said Milford Jenkins, Angus Foundation president. “The Angus Foundation Golf Tournament is an enjoyable opportunity to fellowship with Angus friends during the NJAS.”

This year’s tournament sponsor Merck Animal Health purchased the package during the 2017 National Finals Angus Sale on Dec. 10 to benefit Angus youth, education and research. Two hole-in-one prizes will be featured in the tournament, including $10,000 sponsored by the Hill family and an automobile sponsored by Behlman Carnection.

Additional sponsorship options are available to state and regional Angus associations, individuals, and farms and ranches. There are different promotional opportunities at eight sponsorship levels. Sponsors will be recognized in the tournament program; tournament luncheon; post-events news release; Angus Journal; and the Angus Foundation website, newsletter and annual report. Sponsorship spots include the following: luncheon, beverage/player cart, club house, tournament prizes, tee box, hole and flag. The sponsorship deadline is June 1.

Registration for interested players is open until June 22. Adult registration is $100, and National Junior Angus Association (NJAA) member registration is $75 per player. By registering, players get 18 holes of golf, golf cart rental, continental breakfast and Certified Angus Beef brand lunch. Mulligans will be available at the course for $10 each with a limit of one per player. After the registration deadline, adult players will be $110, and junior members will be $85.
