Badger Wrestling Club golf event is Saturday

For the first time ever, the Badger Wrestling Club is coming to Western Wisconsin. The Badger Wrestling Club is partnering with the Hudson Golf Club to hold the first annual Badger Wrestling Golf Outing Saturday, Sept. 24, beginning at 11 a.m. with a four-man scramble. Following the golf there will be a catered dinner and auction. The cost is $100 which includes golf, dinner, and more. To sponsor a hole or to sign up, either contact the Hudson Golf Club, go to, or show up on Saturday.

Some of the auction items include Badger football tickets, an honorary wrestling coach position, and more. In attendance will be the UW-Madison coaching staff led by Head Coach Barry Davis (three time NCAA Champion and Olympic Silver Medalist), assistants Kyle Ruschell and Trevor Brandvold. Brandvold is a River Falls native who was a two time All American and Big Ten Champion at UW and now coaches the Badger Wrestling Club. The club is supporting Brandvold's goal to make the 2012 USA Olympic Wrestling Team.

Brandvold looks at the Golf Outing as a way to give back to his home region. "My goal is to help and provide every opportunity possible for young wrestlers in Wisconsin, and especially Western Wisconsin, to achieve their dreams of winning State Titles and moving on to wrestle in college."
