The University of Wisconsin Alumni Club of Orange County invites you to join us for an exciting day of golf at the beautiful Tijeras Creek Golf Club. The proceeds from this fundraiser will go towards scholarships for Orange County Students attending the University of Wisconsin.
Not a golfer?  You don't have to swing a club to get involved in this fundraiser.
In Honor of our 26th Anniversary of the Cheesehead Classic, we are adding some additional events to add more fun for 
all participants, especially those attending the tailgate.   We plan to have tailgate games.
 No tailgate is complete without grilled brats, hotdogs and hamburgers along with potato salad, chips and salsa.  Beverages will be available for purchase.
We are inviting alumni from all schools within the Big 10 so there will be a contest for the most participants from each school.  Wear your school colors and we will see who is the best represented! 
We will have music, great weather, golfing, tailgating, and loads of fun!
Can't attend?  Share the Golf Ball Drop Link with friends and family.   Winner does not have to be present to win.  We hope to show the Golf Ball Drop live via our facebook page feed.   There are also sponsorship opportunities or prizes to donate for our contests.


Register as an individual player or register your team of four. The Cheesehead Classic will be held rain or shine.
Choose your golf package from the options below.
