Waukesha Golf Pro Wins WPGA Tournament at Horseshoe Bay

Eddie Terasa, winner of the 2013 PGA Golf Tournament at the Horseshoe Bay Golf Club in Egg Harbor.

Eddie Terasa, golf pro at the North Hills Country Club in Waukesha, emerged as the winner in the field of 81 golf professionals from courses throughout Wisconsin who competed in the Wisconsin Professional Golfers’ Association Professional Championship Tournament on Sept. 16-17 at Horseshoe Bay Golf Club in Egg Harbor. This is the first time the annual event was held in Door County.

Terasa’s 2-under 214 earned him his 11th title in the Wisconsin PGA Professional Championship and qualified him for the 2014 PGA Professional National Championship in Myrtle Beach, S.C., next June. Also qualifying for the national tournament were Charlie Brown, head pro at the H.F. Johnson Park Golf Course, Sturtevant, with a 1-under 215; Ryan Helminen of Ridgeway Country Club, Menasha, 1-over 217; David Roesch of Storm’s Golf Range, Brookfield, 4-over 220; and Mike Johnston of Naga-Waukee, Pewaukee, 5-over 221.

Terasa, who also took home the $4,150 first-place check, said Horseshoe Bay was a spectacular but extremely difficult golf course, well maintained and with an excellent host.

“What could be better then spending two days in Door County playing golf?” he said.

“This is the biggest PGA event of the year, aside from the state open,” said Brian Baus, director of golf operations at Horseshoe Bay Golf Club. “It’s a chance to showcase the facility to other golf professionals around the state. It’s an honor to be selected.”

Besides a few tweaks for a tournament setup, such as trying to make the greens run a little faster, Baus said the team at Horseshoe Bay didn’t to do much more than normal maintenance to present the club to their colleagues.
