The First Tee Announces 2014 Date!

Posted November 05, 2013 in Downtown, Community Web Exclusives

Des Moines, IA – On February 15, 2013, The First Tee of Greater Des Moines will again host a downtown tradition, the Skywalk Golf Classic. Last year was The First Tee’s inaugural year producing the event and they are more excited than ever to continue this tradition in the community. The First Tee will work even harder to enhance the profile of this family-friendly event as well as their organization in order to raise additional funds for their youth development programs.

“We look forward to hosting the Skywalk Golf Classic again this year. This compliments the work we do at The First Tee and it was our lead fundraising event in 2013,” said Luke Garnaas, Board President. “We are especially excited to welcome back Prairie Meadows as our presenting sponsor. Their generosity allows us to expand our programming and impact more young lives in the Greater Des Moines area.”

Registration is $25 per golfer and will be open beginning December 1, 2013. Tee times will be available starting at 9:00 a.m. on Saturday, February. 15. With their registration, each golfer receives one round of golf (18 holes), an official 2014 Skywalk Golf Classic t-shirt, and a souvenir golf ball to use for play. With any adult registration, one child (12 and under) may golf for free!

Each of the golf holes are designed and sponsored by a local business or organization. Prizes are awarded to players for a hole-in-one from the tee sponsor of that hole. If you are interested in being a tee sponsor visit, www.skywalkgolf.com.

Volunteers are also needed for the Skywalk Golf Classic. It is a great opportunity to help out in your community, earn service hours, and support The First Tee of Greater Des Moines. Setup, registration, scoring, and teardown opportunities are now available. Sign up today at www.skywalkgolf.com. All registered volunteers will receive an official Skywalk Golf Classic t-shirt.
