College Scholarships
Mikayla Hauck of Cottage Grove was awarded the Tony Coleman Memorial Scholarship for $1,250. Tony was the PGA General Manager and COO for Bishops Bay Country Club from 1994-2013.  He led the facility from its development into the first rate operation it remains today.  Tony was a 36 year member of the PGA. Tony’s passion for golf was most evident when working with a junior golfer wishing to excel in the game.  This scholarship was made possible by the generous support of the Coleman family, friends, Bishops Bay CC members and the membership of the Wisconsin PGA.
