I am excited to invite you to participate in the 2019 McClimans Clambake Invitational Whistling Straits scheduled for August 9-12. Host to the 2020 Ryder Cup, we are privileged to be able to get space for such a special event and get away from the summer heat and enjoy some of golf’s best designs. We have carefully planned a great event featuring three competitive rounds of golf secured at The American Club, Whistling Straits and Blackwolf Run. We will play three rounds of competitive golf at the Straits Course, the Meadows Course and the River Course. Our practice round for those interested in the package that includes it will be on the Irish Course on Friday, August 9th. (Please contact Jeff for practice round tee times).
Our event will be a Member-Guest style of format, you can choose your partner. Our field size is limited to the first 30 teams 60 golfers. As always, players will be treated to player gifts, daily food on the course and we encourage you to bring your spouse or guest for we have activities and events planned for all. We will determine Team Divisions and Formats once teams register for the event. We will play similar formats as in past competitions such as Best Ball, Team Shamble, Modified Scramble, and Aggregate Stroke Play. (Caddies are required at certain courses and gratuities for Caddies are additional)
We will kick things off on Friday, August 9th with practice rounds at the Irish Course and our pairings party that evening at the Blackwolf Run Clubhouse. We will provide food tastings and spirits with participants and guests invited to attend. The 1st round will be held on Saturday, August 10th at Whistling Straits, the 2nd Round, August 11th at Blackwolf Run Meadows Course, and the Final Round, August 12th at the Blackwolf Run River Course. All packages include lodging and tournament preparations.
Lodging will be reserved at their two facilities, The American Club and The Inn at Woodlake, both Kohler Properites and both well appointed. Our event will conclude with our Final Round wrap up and luncheon before we depart The American Club. Bus transportation will be provided one way to Milwaukee International Airport and then to Chicago for those interested, you will need to contact Jeff to reserve your spot on the luxury coach if you should need it. (Bus transportation charges are additional and per person, check with Jeff)
We have held a block of rooms and tee time space for our group. We have 60 days to place a guarantee to reserve our space so you need to let us know if you want to participate before we release space and commit to a number. Please respond as soon as possible to secure your spot as our time to reserve space is limited.
Traveling to Milwaukee International Airport, The American Club is 55 miles north of the city straight up Interstate 43 to Sheboygan where The American Club is located. We encourage you to rent transportation for your trip if needed. For those traveling out of Tampa International Airport, there is a direct flight into Milwaukee from Tampa if available.
I can’t stress enough the need to know if you are anticipating on being a participant, so please RSVP before May 1st and reserve your spot so we can make the proper arrangements for your arrival. I encourage you all to join us in Wisconsin in August and look forward to spending time and creating new memories at such a new special place for the McClimans Clambake.
