The Charity Golf Invitational is a forum where local business leaders compete for a local charity of their choice. The event was designed with two-person teams competing in a best-ball format and the top teams are awarded prize money for the charity of their choice.
In 2020, to raise even more money for charities and increase player participation, we added a Callaway handicap flight. The Callaway flight is for players without an established USGA handicap. Teams in both flights played for prize money for their favorite charities based on the number of players in their respective flights.
All entry fees are tax-deductible for the sponsoring companies.
This event would not be possible without the support of local businesses and their leaders. First Business is proud to work with such great organizations and covers 100 percent of the event costs. Read more about why we host this event in this First Business blog post.
