Alpine Bank has selected four up and coming golfers to play in the Alpine Bank foursome at this year’s Rockford Pro-Am on Monday, July 13, 2015. Alpine Bank is pleased to announce that its foursome will include: Adam Norwood, Jesse Slattery, Harrison Engelbrecht, and Carson Racich.
Alpine Bank returns this year as a prime sponsor of the Rockford Pro-Am. The bank is choosing to fill its foursome with young, aspiring golfers, giving them the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to play in such a prestigious event alongside golf professionals. In April of this year, the bank extended a special invitation to young golfers to apply to play in the Alpine Bank foursome. The application process involved an application where applicants noted their golf skill/ability, extracurricular activities and a personal statement explaining how playing at the Rockford Pro-Am would benefit them. In addition, each applicant was asked to submit a one-page letter of recommendation from a non-family member (i.e. coach, teacher, mentor, etc.). Fifteen junior golfers from the area applied to play. A selection committee reviewed the applications.
“I would like to thank all of the young golfers who applied. There skill levels were very impressive and any one of them would’ve made a great addition to our team.” said Matt Roegner, executive vice president of Alpine Bank.
In the coming weeks, Alpine Bank will choose the PGA Pro Golfer who will play alongside these talented individuals. Last year’s foursome, with Kenny Perry, took first place in the tournament, marking the first time our foursome has taken that honor.
Alpine Bank will be hosting a special luncheon for the foursome players, as a special thank you and to become acquainted with one another. Following the luncheon, the players will be treated to a round of golf at Rockford Country Club.
