A new committee has been formed at Hayward Golf Club to help raise funds for on-course projects and upgrades at the facility outside of the normal operating budget of the club.
We are looking to raise $25,000 a year for 3 years through a variety of events, fundraisers, and initiatives so that the facility and course can continue to improve while the Board and Staff commit to plans for installing the new irrigation system, which is currently slated to happen in 2020.
Examples of on-course projects coming in 2019 include:
• Extension of the cart path on Hole #9
• New white tee box on Hole #13
• New patio furniture for the Caddyshak Bar & Grill
• Additional assorted improvements
The first of these capital-raising events is already underway in the form of a Super Bowl Square Board in the Pro Shop. The board has 100 squares, and each square costs $25. Each square is associated with a set of secret numbers (to be revealed later), and if your numbers correspond to the score of the game at the end of each of the four quarters, you win!
We’re hosting a Super Bowl Watch Party in the Caddyshak on Sunday, February 3rd, and during the game we’ll be handing out the eight cash payouts of $150 each (2 at the end of each quarter), accounting for 50% of the funds collected, with the remaining 50% of the entry money going towards the 2019 on-course improvements mentioned above. We will also be selecting one random mystery square worth $50 as an additional giveaway!
You can mail entries to our P.O. box (1079, Hayward, WI 54843), email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call the Pro Shop at (715) 634-2760. Checks can be made out to Hayward Golf Club if paying via that method.
We will be rolling out additional initiatives as the year progresses, so stay tuned, and we are open to suggestions and recommendations as we look to get the most bang for our buck with the funds raised. We’re happy to take any suggestions!
We’re looking forward to engaging with the HGC community throughout this coming golf season as we continue to improve the high-quality product we offer here at Hayward Golf Club!
