Cedar Ice-burg Open (Winterfest)

February-during Cedarburg's Winter Festival

The Cedar Ice-Burg Open takes place on a Saturday in February during the Cedarburg Winter Festival. The Ice-Burg Open is a winter golf outing where golfers play 18 holes of golf in and around Cedarburg's Cedar Creek Park. Golfers are allowed to use one club (usually a 5 iron) to hit a tennis ball from the tee area to the hole (tire with flag) in the least amount of strokes. This can be quite a challenge while maneuvering in and around the snow, trees, and the frozen creek. Prizes are given away for such accomplishments as longest drive, closest to the hole, lowest score as well as many others.

Afterwards, there is a spaghetti dinner at the PETER WOLLNER POST 288 American Legion Hall where the awards, door prizes, and raffles are drawn then given away. If you are in Cedarburg during the Winter Festival, bring your 5 iron and three of your friends. Registration is at the American Legion Post.

If you wish to become a hole sponsor, donate a prize, or participate in this years outing, call or fax us at 414-228-4402 or email us.
