    Golf Awards and Reception

    This scramble-style tournament takes place on the beautiful Lee Trevino Course at Geneva National. Enjoy 18 holes with cart and lots of fun along the way!

    The Trevino Course is sprawled across the rolling Wisconsin countryside. Challenging for the seasoned golfer, yet forgiving to the beginner, Trevino offers a memorable round of golf as players find themselves immersed in the picturesque forests of the Geneva National community. This course plays to Mr. Trevino’s natural fade and features subtle dog-leg right holes on nearly every Par 4 & 5. Trevino has signed his name to only a handful of courses, and Geneva National's is one to experience.
