Ag in the Classroom Golf Outing going virtual

BUREAU COUNTY - This year Bureau and Lee County Farm Bureaus will host their 11th Annual Golf Outing for supporters of Ag in the Classroom. However, the fundraiser will look a bit different in 2020.

Due to the shelter in place order, the Foundation made the difficult decision to not hold the golf outing fundraiser in the traditional manner this year. Instead, it will go virtual.

Here is how it will work:


  • Two people per team
  • $40 entry fee per team
  • Golf at your leisure on your chosen course. Take a photo of your scoresheet and fun time on the course and send by e-mail or send your score sheet in the mail by Aug 1. Scores are kept on the honor system.
  • Prizes will be awarded to teams based on criteria that will be announced after Aug. 1 to keep everyone honest. Prize categories may include lowest or highest strokes on a specific hole, number of birdies, total score, etc. Most of all, everyone is encourages to get to a course and have fun.

Proceeds from the tournament will benefit the Bureau and Lee County Ag in the Classroom programs.


  • Become a virtual hole sponsor at the following levels: Seed Sower- $100, Cultivator- $250, Harvester- $500, Barn Raiser- $750 and Rain Maker- $1,000.
