Wisconsin PGA celebrates 100 holes for 100 years

NEW GLARUS, Wis. — Two local golfers are celebrating the Wisconsin PGA’s 100th anniversary in a big way Monday.

Jeff Ellingson and Brad Munn are playing 100 holes of golf in one day at Edelweiss Chalet Country Club. The goal is to raise money for a local charity, First Tee South Central Wisconsin.

Ellingson and Munn got on the course early Monday morning, and won’t get off until the last putt makes it into the cup.

“I will not be under par, I guarantee that,” Ellingson said. “I hope we make a few birdies and have some fun.”

While, unfortunately, the pair’s scores may be high, they’re hoping that the amount of money raised is even higher. So far the WPGA has raised over $40,000 for charities statewide.

“If we can get a bit more than that it would be great,” Ellingson said. “But every little bit helps.”
