Sentry Becomes Official Title Sponsor of Wisconsin State Women's Open
2021 Sentry Wisconsin State Women's Open Set for June 15-16 at Lawsonia in Green Lake
By Brian Weis
The Wisconsin Section of the Professional Golfers' Association of America (WPGA) is excited to announce a new partnership with Sentry, one of the nation's largest and most financially secure mutual insurance companies. Based in Stevens Point, Sentry is the first title sponsor of the Wisconsin State Women's Open golf championship.
The 3-year commitment commences with the 25th playing of the championship. Started in 1997 with a field of 23 players, the event now features 72 participants competing on June 15-16 on the Links Course at the Golf Courses of Lawsonia in Green Lake.
"We are excited to add Sentry as the title sponsor of the Sentry Wisconsin Women's State Open," said WPGA Executive Director, Joe Stadler, PGA. "A major goal of the WPGA is to grow the participation of women playing and working in the game. This relationship will elevate the championship significantly. Sentry has always been extremely supportive of girls' golf, highlighted by hosting the U.S. Girls' Junior Championship and hosting an annual statewide girls-only event for our foundation. The title sponsorship is a perfect extension of that support."
Sentry provides business insurance and other products to companies in specific markets across the country. The company also owns and operates, SentryWorld, opened in 1982 as Wisconsin's first destination golf course. SentryWorld hosted the U.S. Girls' Junior Championship in 2019 and will host the 2023 U.S. Senior Open.
