7th Annual Charity Golf Tournament

7th Annual Charity Golf Tournament

September 28, 2020


It has been a privilege to host a golf event for the benefit of The First Tee of Greater Richmond for the past seven years. Seeing the impact of this organization on Richmond-area youth motivates us to do what we can to provide the resources that are needed to continue its important mission. Our collective "thanks" to the businesses, organizations, and individuals for your participation and generous support.  

At this year's event, we hosted 22 teams totaling 88 golfers who enjoyed a catered lunch and premium golf shoes/pants from FootJoy® before teeing off. Participants also bought chances for high-end raffle items ranging from golf clubs to merchandise signed by PGA golf legends with 100% of proceeds benefitting The First Tee. The sunny weather just added to a great golf day on the lush, rolling greens of The Federal Club. 

Thank you, again, to all participants and sponsors for making this event a success. Together, over the past seven events, we've raised more than $45,000 for the kids in our community. It's your giving spirit that allows us to lift them up and equip them with the skills they need for the good lives they deserve.

About the Charity

The mission of The First Tee of Greater Richmond is to impact the lives of young people by providing educational programs that build character, instill life-enhancing values and promote healthy choices through the game of golf.

The First Tee benefits our community by positively influencing behaviors of young people and inspiring adults to mentor, coach, volunteer, donate to the cause, and uphold the mission. It's through these efforts that youths become more prepared to make sound decisions, exercise good character, and live satisfying, productive lives in which they can give back to the community.

"Doug...Hats off to you and your crew for an extremely well run event!!  I’ve played in a lot of golf tournaments and by far this was one of the best, if not the best event I’ve ever had the privilege of playing in!!  I appreciate and admire the efforts you put in to making yesterday a huge success."
