Madison Scouts will stage golf outing during DCI week

The Madison Drum & Bugle Corps Association, Inc. and its premier performance group, the Madison Scouts, will stage their first annual “$1,000,000 Shoot-Out” golf outing at Hawks Landing Golf Club in Madison, WI, on Wednesday, August 9. The start time is 11:30 AM.

Scheduled during the week of the Drum Corps International Championships that will be held at the University of Wisconsin’s Camp Randall Stadium, it is open to local golfers from across Southern Wisconsin, as well as drum corps fans in Madison for the competition. The $150.00 cost per golfer includes 18-holes, a cart, box lunch, 19th-hole cash bar and and steak dinner, along with participation in the “Longest Drive”, “$1,000,000 Hole-In-One” and “$25,000 Putt” contests.

At the afternoon-ending awards banquet, there will also be a silent auction, with dining certificates, vacation packages and sports memorabilia among the items up for bid.

Proceeds will help fund the international champion Madison Scouts Drum & Bugle Corps. The “$1,000,000 Hole-In-One” contest calls for the special tee shot prize to be split between the winner and the Madison Drum & Bugle Corps Association, Inc., an IRS-registered, 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.

Sponsors are also being accepted for tees, the banquet meal, carts and the insurance policy covering the pay-out for the major cash prizes. American Family Insurance, with their international headquarters located in Madison, has committed to be one of two “prime” sponsors.

The number of participants is limited to 36 foresomes or 144 total golfers. Registration is now being accepted online at
