About the Wisconsin State Open Series
Annually the Wisconsin PGA conducts three of the major golf events in the state, the Wisconsin State Open Series. The oldest and largest of the three championships, the Wisconsin State Open, dates back to 1919 and has been contested every year, except for a two year stretch during World War II. The list of venues is impressive, ranging from classic designs such as Blue Mound Golf & Country Club and Milwaukee Country Club to modern gems like Blackwolf Run and The Bog. The event winners are a list of who’s who in the history of golf in Wisconsin. PGA Tour veterans including Jerry Kelly, Steve Stricker and Mark Wilson have all captured the title. The other two championships are relatively new compared to the Wisconsin State Open but are building a history of their own and feature the best female and senior golfers in the state on a year by year basis. The Wisconsin State Open Series is supported by The Suter Ward Group at Morgan Stanley, Sentry Insurance and TaylorMade Golf.

About the WPGA Professional Championships
The WPGA Professional Championship dates back to 1929 and has been won by some of the best playing WPGA members to call the Wisconsin Section home. Played annually, the 36-hole championship is always a highlight of the season. It is the one championship that gives the winner plenty of bragging rights over their fellow WPGA golf professionals. The event also doubles as qualifying for the National PGA Professional Championship. Eddie Terasa, the head PGA Professional at North Hills Country Club currently owns the record for most wins, piling up an impressive 11 victories over the course of the past 35 years.
