RHINELANDER - This time of year, winter activies start to wind down and the summer fun hasn't quite started yet.
That's why Fisher's Resort and Bar on Lake George in Rhinelander enjoys having it's annual ice golf tournament each year.
"In year's past, March is always kind of a slower season up here in the Northwoods so we figured we'd create an event and put efforts towards a local organization," said Fisher's Resort and Bar owner, Russ Fisher.
That local organization they raise money for is the Hodag Sno-trails snowmobile club.
This year, the tournament had it's biggest turn out.
30 teams came to play, including first timer Dennis Herrmann who lives right across the lake.
"This has nothing to do with golf, I can tell you that right now. But it's a challenge for all the obvious reasons. But you do it for the charity, you do it for the fun and it gives everybody the chance to get out," said Herrmann.
This year they cut it down from 18 holes to 13 so people could get inside faster to enjoy the chili and the raffle items after their round of golf.
