Saturday, Feb. 19 at 9:00 am
Cedar Creek Park

Day of registration at the American Legion Post
Cedarburg IceBurg Open is a Winter golf outing where golfers play 18 holes of golf in and around Cedar Creek Park.  The object is for golfers usually using only a 5-iron to hit a tennis ball from the tee area to the hole (tire w/ flag) in the least amount of strokes. It is quite a challenge maneuvering in and around trees, snow and the frozen Cedar Creek. Prizes are given away for accomplishments such as closest to the hole, lowest score, and others. A spaghetti lunch including beverages will follow the game at the Cedarburg American Legion Post where the awards, door prizes, and raffle prizes will be awarded. All proceeds from this event are used by the Cedarburg Lions Club to continue our charity work.
