The Golf Tourney Pros program is designed to provide instruction on the fundamentals of golf.  As much as golf can be rewarding, it's not without its challenges.   The goal of these programs are to remove the barriers players may feel in enjoying this great sport.  Through our local course partners, players are introduced to golf etiquette, rules, basic skills and selection of equipment.   Instruction is designed to work with all level of players - from beginner to advanced.  

Golf Tourney Pros does offer traditional tournament coordination (without training or peer to peer fundraising).  However, if your organization selects either of these options, minimum fundraising levels must be met.  Although participation in these programs is optional, players must commit to minimum fundraising goals in order to register for these clinics.  

**Note that due to current COVID-19 restrictions, training programs may not be available in certain regions.**

Why fundraising minimums make sense:

  • Engages community members that may be able to fundraise more successfully than a single ticket purchase

  • Offer competitive perks (earlier start times, VIP parking, advantages during tournament), lessons

  • Communities are familiar with peer to peer fundraising approach (Facebook, LinkedIn, etc.)

Recommended minimum fundraising goal (will vary depending on course selected)
