First Annual Main Street Golf Outing is June 12

The Dixon Main Street is planning its First Annual Golf Outing Presented by Fifth Third Bank for June 12 at Timber Creek Golf Club. The outing will have a shotgun start at 1 p.m. and lunch will be served at noon. The event will be a scramble-style competition, with the winning team being immortalized with a plaque at the golf club. Foursomes are $240 or $65 for individual golfers.

The event is co-chaired by Kris Kline of Greensfield Investment Group and Josh Johnson, golf pro at Timber Creek. Dixon Main Street is honored to have new Dixon Police Chief Dan Langloss as the Honorary Chair of the event, too. The event is held to help fund the variety of programs and events that Dixon Main Street offers throughout the year, including the Scarecrow Festival, Christmas Walk, Founders’ Day and much more.

"We are certainly excited about the 1st Annual Main Street Golf Outing and are working hard to ensure that the tournament offers a fun-filled day at Timber Creek Country Club. Our goal is to create a tournament that offers something for all skill levels and build upon what become a wonderful annual event to support our Dixon Main Street organization,” said Kline.

After the golfing, the event also will feature a dinner reception and silent auction at 6 p.m.. The dinner will be themed “Havanna Nights,” with Cuban food and music featured at the event. The dinner includes jerk-spiced chicken, chipotle-cheddar potatoes and much more. Dinner tickets can be purchased separate from the golf outing and cost $25 per person or $45 per couple.

“The generosity of Fifth Third Bank to be our presenting sponsor is just magnificent. The anticipation for this event has been building during the past few weeks, and we already have several sponsorships and foursomes taken,” said Josh Albrecht, Dixon Main Street executive director.
