For years, I was a golfer who participated in many golf tournaments, but rarely volunteered to help out. Well, I have decided to change that and slowly increase my involvement in organizing local golf tournaments. I believe that it is time to give back and so it begins!
Presently, I am involved in two largish events in my area. The first is the stroke and net Match Play tournaments at Osprey Links Golf Course. These two tournaments run all summer and I am responsible for running them. By stepping up, it relieves the GM, Jeff Rogerson, of one of a million things he deals with each day/week/month/year. I ran the event last year and enjoyed helping out. I did not win either draw, but had a great time playing.
The second tournament I am helping with is the TEE IT UP FOR MATTAWA HEALTHCARE. I have played in this fantastic event twice and decided it was time to help out the wonderful team that hosts this event. It will be held at the Mattawa Golf and Ski Resort where Mike and Brenda are awesome supporters of this charity. The save the date announcement just came out and this is what we have to date:
WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 19TH, 2020 – Save the date for our 5th Annual Tee It Up for Mattawa HealthCare Charity Golf Tournament. More information about our new fundraising initiatives and this years tournament coming soon.
Additionally, I have other pans in the fire, but I am not ready to make any announcements. I believe that volunteering is the cornerstone of success for any community and golf is no different. Without out people willing to step up and help, then many fun activities will fall the the wayside.
Do you volunteer at tournaments? If so, are they local or bigger?
I am a grateful golfer! See you on the links!
