NCEL Gets You..... Started / Better / Connected!
Join us for the 62nd Annual Electrical Industry Charity Golf Classic. This event is played as a "scramble" competition between 36 foursomes, and provides an opportunity to connect with over 150 electrical industry personnel. Included is a BBQ lunch, 18 holes of scramble golf, Charity Ball Toss, numerous raffle prize drawings and skill field events, and our famous Golf Classic Putt-Off and 19th Hole Reception prior to a steak dinner. This event is sponsored by the North Central Electrical Manufacturers Club with event proceeds directed to a charity.
Registering a Foursome: You (as your teams' captain) must pay for your foursome online with a credit card upon registering -- no exceptions! Do not select the 'Invoice Me' option as this will NOT secure your registration!

Golf Format: The event is played as a “scramble” competition between foursomes. Golfers will select the best drive of the foursome and pick up the other balls. Each player hits their second shot from the location of the best drive. This procedure is repeated on every shot, including putting, until your foursome holes out. Each member of the foursomes’ tee-shot must be used at least three times. Hole score of a double bogey is maximum. Each foursome has only one score per hole.
Rules: Winter rules apply. Each member of the foursome’s tee-shot must be used at least three times. Shirts with collars must be worn at all times. Men tee-off from the white tee markers; women tee off from the red. Distance markers are in the fairways on sprinkler heads. Carts must stay on the cart paths, away from greens, tee boxes and roped off areas.
Registration Fee: 2019 Fee TBA -- $700 per Foursome in 2018.
