Considering the rainy weather in South Dakota in mid-August, Beef Bucks hit a “lucky 13” with a beautiful sunshine filled day for their 13th annual Beef Bucks Golf Classic, Aug. 21, 2015 in Brandon, South Dakota. Forty-nine foursomes consisting of farmers, ranchers and corporate folks enjoyed a fun-filled day of golf topped off with a delicious steak-fry courtesy of National Beef.
The Caliber Creative team finished first in the championship flight with John Deere Company finishing second and First Bank & Trust finishing third. In the first flight, Coteau Hills Cattlemen took home first place; Avera McKennan Health, second; Alltech, third. The Second Flight had Wilson Trailer Company in first place; St. Onge Livestock, second and Lyle Signs in third. Dakota Ethanol took first place in the third flight with Payback (CHS Nutrition), second; Fareway Food Stores, third. Fenske Cattle Company again provided a $500 Beef Bucks/VISA card for the winner of the poker run. Karla Tolley of the West Central team was fortunate to leave the tourney with the debit card in her pocket. Nichols Fencing provided $20 Beef Bucks in PIN prizes for each of the eighteen holes played by the golfers.
Beef Bucks thanks their many sponsors and participants for enabling them to have a successful 13th year of golfing. The Beef Bucks Golf Classic is held as a fundraiser to maintain the Beef Bucks program and the scholarship fund. Beef Bucks is a non-profit organization governed by a volunteer board of directors which was established for the purpose of beef promotion and consumer education.
