Wabash County, IN __Grow Wabash County invites the Wabash County business community to join them for a day of golf, fun and networking. Registration is now open for Grow Wabash County’s annual WACCY Golf Outing on June 9 at the Honeywell Golf Course, 3360 Niccum Rd in Wabash .
The WACCY Golf Outing will, of course, feature some of the Caddyshack-level antics that have become synonymous with the annual fundraising event. This year will feature the Putting Green Contest as well as the ever-popular game boosters such as Mulligans, Pick-A-Putts and Bad Player Insurance.
Registration is $360 per four-person team, which includes 18 holes of golf with a cart, access to a catered lunch from Miller’s Merry Manor and the chance to win a whole assortment of games and prizes. This year’s outing will offer morning (7:30 a.m. start) and afternoon (1 p.m. start) flights on a first come, first serve basis. There will be a limit of 18 teams per flight.
Prizes that day will be awarded to these categories: Longest Drive for both Men and Women; Longest Putt; Closest to the Pin; and prizes for 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and last place teams. Heartland REMC will once again be sponsoring the Hole-In-One contest, which will include opportunities to win cash prizes for landing holes in one.
The biggest prize of the day, though, will be the custom WACCY Golf Championship Belt, which will be awarded to the grand champion of the 2021 WACCY Golf Outing.
There are also many sponsorship opportunities for businesses to register for to get in on the fun, including becoming a Hole Sponsor ($125) which allows the sponsor to set up at a hole on the course with their own booth or activity to promote their business and connect with the golfers that come through.
WACCY Golf Committee members for the 2021 event include: Jami Bartel, Miller’s Merry Manor; Kaye Krom, Owens Corning-Thermafiber; Gary Larson, Ford Meter Box; Mel Thomas, Honeywell Golf Course; Rachel Olsen, Heartland REMC; Paul McCann, Red Earth CPA; and the Grow Wabash County staff.
We want to extend a special thank you to all of the hole and event sponsors that registered for our cancelled 2020 event and agreed to roll over their sponsorships and registrations to this year’s event.
