CHAMPIONSHIP GOLFER AND MADISON NATIVE TO SERVE AS FIRST HONORARY GOLF CHAIR
The beautiful Bishop’s Bay Country Club overlooking Lake Mendota is again the setting for the Madison Symphony Orchestra League’s major fundraiser, Concert on the Green. While the setting is the same, there is a wonderful addition to this year’s 22nd golf tournament, concert and dinner: Honorary Golf Chair Sherri Steinhauer.
Our first ever Honorary Chair grew up in Madison with parents Fritz and Nancie and four older brothers: Chuck, Gary, Tom and Randy. She played junior golf at Nakoma Golf Club and was three time Wisconsin Junior Champion. She graduated from Madison Memorial High School and attended the University of Texas where she was an All American. After qualifying for the LPGA Tour on her first attempt, Sherri began a stellar 26-year career. Her playing highlights feature being an eight-time Tour winner including winning three Women’s British Open’s. She represented the United States on four biennial Solheim Cup teams (1994, 1997, 2000 and 2007) and was Vice Captain of the Solheim Cup team in 2011.
Sherri retired from the LPGA tour in 2012 finishing her career 21st on the All-Time Career Money List. She competed on The Legends Tour from 2009 until this year and won two tournaments. Her golf honors include: being inducted into the Wisconsin State Golf Association Hall of Fame in 2004; the University Hall of Honor in 2010 and the Madison Sports Hall of Fame in 2013. She has served on the LPGA Player Director Board as a Board Member and as Vice President and has been an Honorary Board Member of The First Tee of South Central Wisconsin since 2011.
She will be present throughout the day and evening to talk golf and pose for photos. What better way to cap off a weekend of golf in Madison (The Senior Tour at University Ridge concludes on June 26), than to play in the Concert on Green Golf Tournament on June 27th and ask Sherri for a few suggestions to improve your game. Or, if you are not a golfer, meet and talk with Sherri before and after the concert at the cocktail reception and dinner.
