Wisconsin golf enthusiasts can now wear their affection for the game on their bumpers. And we're talking real cars here -- not golf carts.
Starting today, the state Department of Transportation tees off with its "Golf Wisconsin" license plate. For an extra $25 per year, golfers can drive from the 19th hole at one course to the first tee at the next course with vehicle plates bearing the Golf Wisconsin logo on the left side and, below the license number, the legend "Support Junior Golf."
An alliance between the state Department of Tourism, the Wisconsin State Golf Association, the Golf Course Owners of Wisconsin and the PGA's Wisconsin section, Golf Wisconsin provides free instruction and free golf opportunities for youths.
Three-fourths of proceeds from sales of the new plates will go toward supporting junior golf programs under the auspices of the PGA's Wisconsin section. The remaining 25% is earmarked for state Department of Tourism promotion of golfing in Wisconsin.
Applications for the Golf Wisconsin plates are available at state Department of Transportation offices and at Golf Wisconsin.
Me, I'm holding out for mini-golf Wisconsin plates that support junior mini-golfers.
