SCVRTA Hosts Golf Tourney at Bristol Ridge


APRIL 15, 2005--Golfers of all skill levels are invited to participate in the St. Croix Valley Regional Tourism Alliance golf tournament and banquet on May 9 at Bristol Ridge Golf Course in Somerset, Wis.

Bristol Ridge, located at 1970 County Road C, is an 18-hole, par 72, championship daily fee golf course with a full-service clubhouse, pro shop, bar and complete dining facility.

This year a portion of the proceeds will be donated to Friends of Willow River State Park used for youth programs and visitors’ amenities in the state park located near Hudson.

SCVRTA includes chambers of commerce, business associations, hospitality and tourism businesses and other organizations in 19 communities along the Lower St. Croix National Scenic Riverway.

The handicapped best ball (scramble) is for both serious and casual golfers. The players can compete for prizes in team, individual hole and event categories.

A buffet dinner and dessert auction will also be offered. Other entertainment includes games, a dessert auction, and a silent auction. The latter features some of the top items and attractions in the Valley: golfing items and golf packages, gift baskets, and certificates to restaurants, B&Bs, and souvenir clothing items from Valley communities.

Registration begins at noon, with a shotgun start at 1 p.m., followed by a social and silent auction beginning at 5 p.m. with dinner served at 6:30 p.m.

The registration fee for the golf tournament, which includes green and cart fees, door prizes, a tournament memento, dinner and entertainment is $100 per person. For just the dinner and entertainment, the cost is $30 per person.
