Riverside Park Update

Posting an update - do not reply here. Send email to [email redacted]

We are in the process of raising funds for the Riverside Park course in the city of West Bend. Our goal is to raise $30,000 to create a professional course with all the amenities. Each 18 holes will have a depictive teesign, an ace signing pole, a concrete teepad, permanent benches and trash cans. The course will also have a bulletin kiosk with map, and sponsorship list and a practice basket. There will be brush clearing and maintaining cut fairways as needed.

I have brochures about sponsorship/donating for the course. I can mail you out some copies if you know of interested parties. Beside personal sponsors; companies can also sponsor and advertise on the teesigns.

As soon as the snow is completely gone and the ground is solid we will begin the installation process with the first 9 holes to possible 18 holes depending upon funding. With temp teesigns, temp gravel/board tee areas. For about 6 to 12 months we will play the course and tweak as needed before installing permanent teesigns, teepads, benches etc. Make sure we have a good flow and safety.

I have been volunteering my time in meetings all last week with the city and our Kiwanis club's which consist of the Sunrise Rotary, Early Risers, Noon Rotary Kiwanis clubs. We presented the sport in all aspects, the course layout and park location. We just got word yesterday that the Sunrise Rotary Kiwanis loved the idea and has donated $2000. Hoping to hear back from the others.

Thank you,

Josh Hamm
