The Second Annual Jungle Gym Charity Golf Tournament is Friday, September 30th. The shotgun time will start at 12PM. This will allow some of us to be able to work half days if need be, but if you can, try and take off the whole day. The tournament will be at Newport News Deer Run Golf Course.
This will be an event for all people, Jungle Gym and non-Jungle Gym. You can create your own team, or you can sign up as a single and we will assign you a team. The style of the game will be a Captain’s Choice.
The format of Captain’s Choice is simple. Each team member tees off and proceeds to the spot of the best drive where everyone hits their next shot. This continues until the ball is holed. This is great for many reasons. It gives beginner players a chance to feel like a pro, and what’s better than sinking birdies and drinking . . . water :-).
When you register, you can sign up as a single ($60) or as a team ($240). Once you click the “BOOK” button on the registration link, there is a toggle at the top to sign up as a “SINGLE” or “GROUP OF 4”. If you sign up as a GROUP OF 4, I will contact you to get the names of the people on your team. If you sign up as single, you will be place on a team.
Each registration will be $60 and will include all fees for greens, carts, scoring, bag-loading, reffing and range balls. Food and beverage is bought on your own accord. Outside beverages are not permitted, but there will be plenty of cute cart girls passing around frosty drinks.
The charities we will be playing for with be:
The Boys and Girls Club of Newport News
The Jungle Gym Charity Fund – goes in helping a member’s family
Hotdoghill Sanctuary – a place for special needs for dogs
PeacePlayers – a charity dedicated to bringing culturally divided people together through sports.
Active Heroes – reaches out to active service members, veterans and their families to help them heal both physically and mentally through simply being active.You will be able to choose which charity you donate to upon purchase of raffles and mulligan packages.
At the beginning of play, you can purchase mulligans, ball throws, and other handicaps. These purchases will be given straight to charity. There will be 3 vendors each at holes 1, 9, 10, and 18. Each vendor will have a raffle and free samples/advertisement for their brand. These raffles will be donated to charity. At the end of tournament get together, we will also auction off a big item towards charity.
Winners of the tournaments will win prizes donated to the event, but that’s not it! We will have an after party set up at Jungle Gym’s sponsor restaurant (County Grill starting at 6:30) to announce the winners, the raffles, and the auction. It’s going to be a great day of fun, golf, charity, and good times. Please register and come support the local community.
The last day you can register will be September 25th! You will receive an email that day describing all the events details including mulligan packages, raffle instructions, prizes, and much more.
