On June 18, the Spring Creek Country Club will host the 18th Annual South Dakota Corn Growers Association (SDCGA) Corn Cob Open. SDCGA members, farmers, agribusiness people, and political leaders will gather in Harrisburg to enjoy a fun and relaxing day at the scenic Spring Creek Country Club Golf Course.
There will be two four-man best ball tournaments, one starting at 8 a.m. and the other at 2 p.m. Prizes will be given to the top three teams of each tournament.
Once again a hole-in-one opportunity will be offered, where golfers will choose their best iron to attempt to win a 2009 Flex Fuel Vehicle with a single swing. More great prizes will be awarded on other holes as well. A noon and evening meal will be served to golfers of each tournament during which participants will have the opportunity to win items such as gas grills, coolers and more for their performance on the greens.
Registration for the Corn Cob Open is $50 per golfer for SDCGA members and $100 for non-members; this includes green fees, cart rental and the meal.
Numerous allied industry organizations have partnered with SDCGA to sponsor the 18th Annual Corn Cob Open. The premier event sponsor is Pioneer and Monsanto will sponsor the golf carts. Green sponsors include Farm Credit Services of America, South Dakota Corn Utilization Council, TJ Technologies and WNAX.
