The 2012 Annual Fish and Golf Tournament Date is Set

We are inviting teams of three to participate in the 2012 Fish and Golf Tournament, featuring a day of fishing on Saturday, Sept. 29, and a day of golf, Sunday, Sept. 30.

Last year’s tournament featured some great fishing and fantastic weather for golf.

“We are very lucky to have championship golf and world class fishing all within a couple miles of each other. It makes Grand View Lodge an absolute perfect location to host a fish and golf event,” said Jack Wawro, head golf professional at Grand View Lodge. “Our unique tournament allows our guests to enjoy both premier golf as well as reconnect with nature while on the surrounding lakes, and it’s a lot of fun!”

Saturday will be dedicated to fishing and trying to out-catch your fellow fishermen on the Gull Lake chain, one of the top 10 Walleye lakes in the state. Fishing will take place from 12:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m., at which time there will be a weigh-in. The winner will be determined by the weight of two Bass, two Northern and two Walleye. Points will carry over to the golf event the following day. There will be a dinner announcing the fishing results following the contest at the Main Lodge Dining Room.

Sunday will feature a golf tournament, beginning with a shotgun start on the Pines course. The three person teams will participate and winners will be determined after combining the two net scores of the three players. The points earned will be combined with the fishing event, and the overall winners will be announced over a lunch at Freddy’s Grille at the Pines course.

The cost of the tournament is $100 per each member, or $150 for non-members and includes entry and participation in each event, several meals, a cart and gift-card prizes throughout the weekend. Lodging is available for each three-person team for $150 plus tax. Teams must provide their own boat or hire a fishing guide for the first day of the event. Professional golfers and fisherman are welcome.
