  • Contest: Fundraising Event
  • What Should the Voters Know?: The Ice Golf Charity Scramble is a fun new fundraiser that benefits the campers and families of Camp Ta-Kum-Ta. Held on the links of Vermont's most exclusive golf resort, the frozen waters of Lake Champlain, this golf tournament features two nine-hole courses. Prior to the event, a dedicated group of volunteers prepare a roughly 2 square mile patch of ice by plowing snow to create fairways and greens, laying down mats for the tee box, and using an auger to create the holes. It is an impressive and cold undertaking.

    On the day of the tournament, thirty teams of four (120 golfers) participate in a full day of golf out on the ice. Teams pay a registration fee and additionally have an opportunity to peer-to-peer fundraise on behalf of Camp Ta-Kum-Ta. As with most golf tournaments, there are many generous hole sponsors, food and beverage sponsors, and community members who make the event a success. The day concludes with a celebration at a nearby restaurant where players have can warm up, share stories of the day and celebrate the tournament winners and top fundraisers with a trophy presentation. All in attendance can also purchase tickets to participate in 50/50 and item auctions.

    The Ice Golf Charity Scramble is a tremendous fundraiser that continues to grow and develop interest in Vermont. Camp Ta-Kum-Ta is fortunate to have a wonderful group of volunteers who organize the event, sponsors, and players who make the scramble such a hit!
