Iowa Children’s Open

Friday, June 2, 2017

THIS is the tournament for those of you who come out to play for nothing short of the title. Thanks to our terrific presenting sponsors, the Iowa PGA, and our good friends at Brown Deer Golf Club, we have developed what we hope will soon become referenced as the best PRO-AM in the Iowa Section.

The entire event kicks off Thursday night at the PAR-TEE. Complimentary tickets for PAR-TEE are included for each team.  The event features Nate & Sam Kaeding, Kirk & Mary Ferentz, and former Iowa Basketball player and NBA player, Bobby Hansen.  NEW this year to the PAR-TEE, Iowa’s very own country star Jake McVey will be performing on the Brown Deer patio!  You won’t want to miss this awesome concert with Jake and his band!  The concert is open to all golfers and anyone purchasing a PAR-TEE admission ticket.

You can sign up to play in the OPEN with or without a pro. If you want to bring your home course pro (or he wants to bring you) you will just need to provide some basic contact information when completing the registration form . If you are in need of a pro, we will coordinate with Brown Deer Head Professional, Sean McCarty, to assign you one. Be sure to note your preference when completing the registration form.

Registered teams of five are made up of one pro or request for pro, plus 4 amateurs. The best amateurs the community has to offer will compete to capture the title.
