The U.S. Venture Open, a huge charitable golf outing in the Fox Cities each summer, will welcome golfing legend Jack Nicklaus this August. The "Golden Bear", PGA hall of famer and winner of 18 major championships, has committed to the event August 8. Golfers fill five Fox Valley area courses for a round and then gather at Van Abel's restaraunt in Hollandtown for a dinner and banquet. Nicklaus will have a very limited availability at the event however, with thousand dollar donors and other VIP's getting a chance to meet with him. Last year, more than 1.8 million dollars was raised for the U.S. Venture Fund and with Nicklaus coming this summer, officials hope to top 2 million dollars raised.
