Check-in opens at 9 a.m., after which you can pick out your own Callaway wedge, beautiful leather valuables pouch, and TaylorMade TP5 or TP5x golf balls. Afterwards, participate in Demo Day where you test a wide array of Callaway and TaylorMade equipment. At 11 a.m. PGA Tour Professional Fred Funk will conduct a Short Game Clinic at RTJ’s world-class practice facility. Throughout the morning you can warm up your game at the practice facilities and enjoy the spectacular clubhouse to see and bid on terrific auction items. Our exciting “low tech meets high tech” auction will offer an array of interesting items and one-of-a-kind experiences, including a package to the 2019 Masters at Augusta National.
Play begins with a noon shotgun start, with lunch at the Lake House during the round. You will compete in contests such as the longest drive, closest to the pin, putting, and hole-in-one, with chances to win prizes such as a fantastic 2018 Audi Q5, $10,000 in cash, RTJ gift certificate, 50″ 1080p HDTV, Yeti Cooler, VIP Ticket professional sporting/entertainment event package, or a five-day Ocean Cruise package! During the round, Fred Funk will join groups on a hole, offering all players a unique experience to play with one of the best golfers in the world.
Around 5 p.m., immediately following the conclusion of play, three contest winners and a specific sponsor-designated registered player, will each have one shot to share in a $50,000 hole-in-one cash prize. In addition, the tournament’s winning team members will each have one shot to share in a $100,000 hole-in-one cash prize. Following the conclusion of the shootouts, cocktails will flow as you peruse, and bid online, for our auction items. At 6 p.m. dinner is served, followed by an evening program with a word from Mackenzie’s Mission and awarding of the prizes. Prizes include RTJ gift certificates: $1,400 for the first place team, $1,000 for the second place team, and $600 for the third place team. The program concludes at 8 p.m.
