First Business Bank Charity Golf Invitational – Madison

Each year, First Business Bank brings local business professionals together to compete in a golf tournament that benefits their charities of choice. Just last year, we donated $46,500 between five different charities thanks to our golfers’ support.

Show Your Support & Your Competitive Drive

Participate in our signature golf outing that benefits local nonprofits. The First Business Bank Charity Golf Invitational - Madison showcases the generosity and competitive spirit of Wisconsin's local business professionals as they compete as two-person teams on behalf of a local charity of their choice.
Top-scoring teams win pooled entry fees as donations for the charity they select. First Business Bank is proud to cover 100% of the event costs.
Players with a handicap will be eligible to win on behalf of one charity. Players without a handicap are invited to play but will be ineligible to compete on behalf of a charity.
