Hickory Hills Golf Club Hosts Second Annual “Tee It Up For The Troops” Event


EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU) – Golfers showed up for their tee times at the Hickory Hills Golf Club in support of disabled veterans Friday morning.

Tee It Up For The Troops, a Minnesota-based organization that supports veterans and their families, held its charity event for a second year in Eau Claire.

The event began with a shotgun salute and was followed by a three-plane flyby just over the golf course.

The charity’s purpose was to raise money for disabled veterans and their families, as well as raise money for the Chippewa Veterans Association.

The main event was a four-person scramble, and this year there were 26 participants. This was double last year when 13 people took part in the event.

There were also silent auctions and raffles at the event.

Veterans and their families were there, but an organizer said the event was open to everyone.

“I have my father, my brothers-in-law, my son-in-law are all soldiers. And you don’t have to be in the military. You just have to want to come and sponsor them and help them. And it will be very quick, very easy to use your time,” said Joe McNallan.

The event came to Eau Claire after McNallan attended one in Minnesota and discovered there was no such event for the area.

He says it should be held annually on the Friday after Labor Day.

To register, it says you can contact the Hickory Hills Golf Club.
