Golf Benefit 2020

September 14, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 7:00 pm

Golf Benefit

28th Annual Golf Benefit, Monday, September 14th, 2020 at Bishops Bay Country Club

With every challenge comes new opportunities. Due to COVID-19, we have been watching and waiting to make a decision on the Friends of the Waisman Center’ s annual golf outing that typically takes place in July. We are shifting this event to the fall and hope that you can join us on Monday, September 14 at Bishops Bay. 

The golf benefit is the Friends of the Waisman Center’s most significant fundraiser. The Friends support a broad range of programs and activities at the center as well areas of greatest need. This year the proceeds will help expand teletraining services in the Waisman Center Clinics in addition to other activities. COVID-19 has served as a catalyst in expanding the ways our clinicians connect and engage with our community.

DATE/PLACE: Monday, September 14, 2020 at Bishops Bay Country Club, 3500 Bishops Bay Drive, Middleton, WI
GOLF: Scheduled tee-times. We limited the number of golfers so that everyone should be finished by late afternoon. The driving range is open and available for golfers who would like to come before their tee-time to practice.

  • Arrive at Bishops Bay. As golfers will need to handle their own clubs, it is easiest to park and then walk up to the
    golf cart staging area and grab your cart to drive to the parking lot and load up your clubs. You can also walk up with
    your clubs and a staff member will direct you to your cart.
  • Once your clubs are on your cart, go to the registration table to check-in, purchase a mulligan, pick up your gift pack and drink ticket. Drink tickets can be used for a complimentary beverage on the course or at the bar.
  • All golfers depart clubhouse and tee-off at the Hole #1 at your scheduled tee time.
  • Golfers finish their rounds. Grab lunch or depart the club.
    (Enjoy lunch either before your tee-time or after your golf game depending upon your tee time. More details below.)

LUNCH FROM THE GRILL: Enjoy a hot lunch made to order from the grill. Morning tee times between 8-10:30 a.m. will receive lunch after their rounds. Golfers with tee times after 12:30 p.m. will eat lunch before their rounds. Note: Golfers will have 1 hour before or after their tee time, as indicated, to warm up, use the patio, eat, and have a beverage from the bar. Menu includes a choice of a burger, cheeseburger, brat, hot dog, or grilled chicken, and sides.
WHAT TO WEAR: Shoes with soft spikes only. Shorts OK (but, please, no gym shorts or denim). Men should wear collared shirts.
Face coverings are required in the club house. Please practice physical distancing while socializing.
MULLIGANS: One mulligan per golfer; $20 each.
Bishops Bay is using Golf Genius for all event scoring. Use your moblie devive to enter and keep scores. Each team can get the free Golf Genius app at the App Store. A specific six letter code is given to each foursome at the first tee. Directions for how to enter scores and view the leaderboard will be provided.
Golfers can win prizes in a number of flag events and the top teams will receive gift certificates to the Bishops Bay Pro Shop.Upon completion of play the leaderboard will be updated to show hole event winners. Merchandise credit will be awarded to the top placing teams. Credit can be redeamed at your convenience and a list of winners and their amount will be kept in the golf shop.(Contactless options are available upon request.)
Play will go on unless storms are severe and long-lasting. If play is canceled, the reception will still take place, and players can obtain a rain check for a round of golf.

We Need Your Help.
Your golf sponsorship will help support the ECHO project (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes). This new initiative uses video conferencing technology to provide education and case consultation on best practice clinical services, training, and resources for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities, such as autism, and their families. ECHO will serve as a diagnostic and treatment training hub to share the Waisman Center’ s expertise with clinicians throughout the state and beyond.

Your Safety is Important to Us:
We will follow all current safety guidelines for COVID-19. With this in mind, we are shifting the format of the golf benefit from a shotgun start to staggered tee-times. Come enjoy a round of golf at the time of day that is most convenient for your schedule.

All meals will be prepared to-go or boxed. Golf carts will be single user.
