Quail Creek Golf Course
Take a stand for public education and save the date now for FEEF’s 30th Annual Mayor’s Golf Tournament.
The tourney, organized by Fairhope Educational Enrichment Foundation and The City of Fairhope, is scheduled for Thursday, March 22, 2018 at Quail Creek Golf Course. Proceeds provide Fairhope students with innovative and creative programs including science labs, engineering, art, music, and theatre.
With title sponsor Terry Thompson Chevrolet and chaired by Jake Defee, the tournament returns this year with a full day format allowing space for both corporate and individual teams. Preferred morning and afternoon tee times are available on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Defee said the tournament has gained a reputation as one of Fairhope’s finest charity golfing events, offering a great day of golf while supporting public education in the community. “As our area has grown, so has interest in the tournament,” said Defee. “FEEF’s Mayor’s Tourney plays a critical role in funding programs that would not be available without private support. We hope the expanded format gives everyone who wishes to play an opportunity to come out and have fun.”
Sponsorship information will be available in January, 2018. Sponsorships will include Wednesday’s practice round ($17 cart fee only), Thursday’s round, complimentary breakfast, lunch, beverages on the course, dinner, and the chance to win door prizes generously donated by local businesses.
The tournament format is a four-person scramble with a morning shotgun start beginning at 8 a.m. and afternoon shotgun start at 1 p.m. Winners in the low net and low gross categories will receive prizes. Hole-in-one prizes, including cars and cash, will be awarded to anyone making a hole-in-one on designated par 3s. Prizes will also be awarded for closest to the pin on each par 3, the longest drive, and the putting contest.
Non-golfers can participate by adopting a tee sign, honoring a teacher, coach or classroom, for $150. Twenty-five dollars from each tee sign sold goes to the honoree for use in the classroom. FEEF will display the tee sign at one of 18 tee boxes during the tournament and again outside the schools during the week following the tournament. Year-round advertising on Quail Creek tee markers is also available.
