Yesterday, I was fortunate enough to play in the Davey Nelson Celebrity Golf Tournament at the beautiful Irish Course at Whistling Straits in Kohler, Wisconsin.
This was the eighth year of Davey’s tournament and the third at the Irish Course (in previous years, it’s been played at Blackwolf Run).
Upon check-in, participants were provided with assorted goodies, including a shoe trees, a duffel bag and a rain jacket (which fortunately we didn’t need out there on the course!)
Then, the morning started off with golf pros walking the line at the driving range and a putting contest, along with a buffet brunch.
Each foursome in the tournament was paired with a celebrity golfer to make up a five-person team. Team play consisted of a Scramble Format with team prizes awarded to the top finishers.
Among the many celebrities in the tournament were current Brewers personnel and alumni players: Zach Davies, Ken Sanders, Gorman Thomas, Jerry Augustine, Jim Gantner, Paul Wagner, Greg Vaughn, Wes Obermueller, Doug Melvin, Jason Lane, Darnell Coles, Sal Bando, and Willie Mueller; Randall McDaniel, Former NFL player; Greg Meyer, NFL Referee; Tony Smith, a former Milwaukee Bucks player; and Telly Hughes, sideline reporter for Fox Sports Wisconsin.
My group consisted of former basketball player Tony Smith; former Brewers general manager Sal Bando; current Brewers coach Jason Lane; and my friend from Fox Sports Wisconsin, Brian Mikolajek.
The tournament was a shotgun start, so our group began on hole 9, a par four. We started off slow and scrambled for a couple of pars, but in the end, we never made a bogey and came away with one eagle and seven birdies to put us at -9 on the day (63).
Each hole also consisted of different challenges with opportunities to win various prizes for things like longest drive, longest putt, or closest to the hole.
Considering that our 63 was six shots better than my group last year, I felt like it was a very strong score–until we got back to the clubhouse and found that the winning group had posted a -18!
But, we had a ton of fun, which is the most important thing!We had wonderful weather, a fun day, the chance to play a beautiful championship course and, most importantly, we were helping a great cause: Open Arms Home for Children in South Africa and Brewers Community Foundation. Open Arms is a non-profit organization that provides shelter, clothing, protection and basic healthcare for what is now home to many children orphaned due to the Aids epidemic in South Africa. Davey has served as Board of Director for over five years.
Following golf, there was a reception and silent auction, followed by a live auction.
During dinner, we learned more about Open Arms and heard stories about the children whose lives we were helping, all by taking a day off of work to play golf.
My boss, Tyler Barnes, VP of Communications, was on hand to speak about his personal experience at Open Arms as he and his family had visited South Africa over the holidays.
The entire presentation was very touching and moving and I’m so happy that this event has been able to raise money to support the organization, which Davey and many others have dedicated a lot of time and energy into making a success.

Here are some more photos from the day and I hope to see you out at the tournament next year!

The Fifth Annual Celebrity Golf Tournament hosted by Brewers Director of Alumni Relations and FOX Sports Wisconsin broadcaster Dave Nelson is scheduled to be held on Monday, June 24, 2013 on the Irish Course at Whistling Straits in Kohler, Wisconsin.
The Davey Nelson Celebrity Golf Tournament kick off at 10:30 a.m. with a Shotgun Start and will be followed by a cocktail reception, silent and live auctions, and dinner.
Last year, I was fortunate enough to attend this event, where I was paired with former Brewers pitcher Jay Aldrich. It was a really fun day for an important cause. You can read my review of the tournament, plus see more photos, here.
This year, celebrity guests scheduled to golf in the tournament include current Brewers players and personnel: Gord Ash, Tom Gorzelanny, Garth Iorg, Kyle Lohse, Doug Melvin, Chris Narveson and Ron Roenicke; former Brewers players Jay Aldrich, Sal Bando (also a Brewers GM), Jeff Cirillo, Geoff Jenkins, Damian Miller, Willie Mueller (who was also in the movie Major League as “Duke”), Greg Vaughn, Paul Wagner and Steve Woodard; Bruce Froemming, former MLB Umpire; Jason Grimsley, former MLB pitcher; Randall McDaniel, Former NFL player; Greg Matzek, radio personality; Greg Meyer, NFL Referee; Tony Smith, a former Milwaukee Bucks player; and Craig Coshun and Telly Hughes, sideline reporters for Fox Sports Wisconsin. [Celebrity golfers are subject to change.]
And, not only is the field stellar, but the course is amazing as well. In the previous years of the tournament, the outing has been held at Blackwolf Run in Kohler and now participants will have a new challenge as it moves to the Irish Course at Whistling Straits. All of the courses up at Kohler are phenomenal, so you really can’t go wrong.
The Irish Course, which was ranked #39 in Golf Digest‘s ranking of America’s 100 Greatest Public Golf Courses for 2013/2014 features “the grassland-and-dunes aspect of the Irish” and is just inland from the lake and interspersed by four streams.
One unique feature of the course is a flock of Scottish Blackface sheep which roam freely, harkening back to older times on Scottish links courses, where sometimes sheep were the only “lawnmowers” used.
Registrations are being accepted as foursomes only and a celebrity golfer will be paired with each group to make up a five-person team. Team play will consist of a Scramble Format with team prizes awarded to the top finishers. The tournament is limited to 30 foursomes and, if you haven’t signed up yet, I’m told there is still space available, but it is moving quickly! Registration fees are $2,500 per foursome.
Besides the tournament itself, a golf clinic led by American Club golf pros and a putting contest will take place at 9:30 a.m., and a buffet brunch will be served prior to play. After golf, there will be a cocktail hour with a Silent Auction followed by dinner and a Live Auction.
For those who do not wish to golf, tickets to the reception and dinner only are available for $150 per person.
An additional preview event has been added on Sunday, June 23rd, consisting of a golf experience at Whistling Straits followed by a cocktail reception and dinner at the Championship Locker with celebrity participants. Rates for the preview event vary pending participation and sponsorship level.
Proceeds will benefit Open Arms Home for Children in South Africa and Brewers Community Foundation. Open Arms Home for Children is a non-profit organization that provides shelter, clothing, protection and basic healthcare for what is now home to many children orphaned due to the Aids epidemic in South Africa. Dave Nelson has served as Board Director for several years.
