"We hope that area businesses will see this as an excellent marketing opportunity," explains committee Co-Chair Lori Mabery. "In addition to the application, prospective golfers will be sent a list of other things to see and do in the Verde Valley, so they'll be encouraged to make a family weekend out of it."
Verde Santa Fe Golf Pro, Mike Wright once again is offering some new and exciting changes for this year's tournament we're sure you'll enjoy. Last year we were able to donate $500 to help disadvantaged students participate in the Cottonwood Junior Golf Program. This year we have more opportunities to increase that amount and raise awareness about Junior Golf programs in our local schools.
The tournament is scheduled for August 1, 2015 at Verde Santa Fe. If history is any indication, the tournament is expected to sell out all 104 spots, so get your team registered now. For 13 consecutive years, the outpouring of generosity from the business community has been incredible, allowing nearly every participant to go home with a raffle or silent auction prize.
For more information about the tournament or participate as a sponsor and donate a prize, please contact Christian at the Cottonwood Chamber office at (928) 634-7593. Or register on-line at www.cottonwoodchamberaz.org.
