WATERLOO, Iowa—The National Wrestling Hall of Fame Dan Gable Museum has released it full slate of celebrities for the 15th annual Dan Gable Celebrity Golf Tournament.

The tournament will be held at Centennial Oaks Country Club in Waverly, Iowa, on Friday, June 6.

This year’s headline celebrity is Mike Golic. Golic is best known as co-host of the “Mike and Mike” show on ESPN. He played eight years in the NFL for the Houston Oilers, Philadelphia Eagles, and Miami Dolphins as defensive tackle. Golic also played football and wrestled for Notre Dame.

“My love for wrestling has always equaled my love for football,” said Golic. “To be associated with anything Dan Gable related is an honor.”

Four-person teams will be paired with a celebrity in this 18-hole, best ball tournament. Cost is $150 per person (you may register as a team or as an individual). Cost includes dinner, green fees, and cart. Dinner and live auction will follow the golf tournament with Dan Gable as the guest speaker. There are also sponsorship opportunities for interested businesses.

Jerry Roling Motors and Roling Ford are the presenting sponsors of this year’s Dan Gable Celebrity Golf Tournament. State Bank, with locations in Waverly and six other communities in Northeast Iowa, is this year’s Olympic champion sponsor.
