Horseshoe Bay Plays Host To Door County Cup
High school golfers from around the county were treated to a special day of golf on Friday, May 15 as Horseshoe Bay played host to the annual Door County Cup. This event, sponsored by the Door County Golf Association, invites the jayvee and varsity teams of the five Door County high schools to battle it out in individual and team stroke play competition.
“It’s a great experience for the kids,” said Sturgeon Bay coach Tony Smith. “Most of them have never played on a course of this caliber!”
Sturgeon Bay took home the trophy with a total team score of 342, while Sevastopol finished a close second with 346. Southern Door senior, Nick Hoegger, was this year’s medalist, shooting an impressive 74. Sevastopol came into the clubhouse with 2nd, 3rd, and 4th place finishers: Rob Leist (79), Sam Weber (81), and Ben Ehlers (82).

High Turn-Out Despite High Winds at DeJardin
One hundred and forty eight golfers braved the pounding, 25-mile/hour winds Saturday, May 16, at the annual DeJardin Scramble at Idlewild. In honor of the late Jeff DeJardin, this popular event raises college scholarship money for Door County League baseball players, and is a sure sign of the start of the spring golf season.
