Dodge County Corn and Soybean Growers golf tournament Friday
"Pod & Cob" Scholarship Golf Outing hole-in-one for ag students

By Alexa Nash

For over ten years, Wells Fargo and Dodge County Corn and Soybean Growers have been putting on a scholarship golf tournament. The tournament raises money for students looking to go into a field of study in agriculture or for students whose parents were very involved in agriculture.

There are four $500 scholarships, and one scholarship for agriculture leadership worth a couple thousand dollars. "We want to do our part to help the next generation," said John Bhend, who has been a part of the golf tournament actively for eight years. "There are a lot of tremendous opportunities, and a lot of exciting things happening in agriculture."

Last year, 65-70 people participated in the event put on by the Corn and Soybean Growers. The Corn and Soybean Growers and sponsors for the tournament participate, as well as many others involved in agriculture who join to help and to have fun.

There are also prizes for the participants in the tournament; there is a hole-in-one contest to win a KSIH scout worth around $1500 as well as a putting contest to win a $50 gift certificate for the Hubbell House. Other prizes include an electronics package, a golf package, and two plane tickets for anywhere in the country. In addition to this, other business sponsors have games set up on some holes.

Registration starts at noon on Friday, Aug. 28, for the 18-hole tourney at the Oak's in Hayfield. Afterwards, there will be a steak and baked potato dinner for the participants provided by the Oak's Club. The dinner is paid for at registration.
