Gordon Hoffman Charity Golf Tournament
The annual Gordon Hoffman Charity Golf Tournament takes place in late August each year at Priddis Greens Golf & Country Club. Since it started in 2010, the Gordon Hoffman Charity Classic Tournament has raised over $1 million to support children with Learning Disabilities and ADHD.
Due to the uncertainty of COVID and health restrictions, we are holding off opening up registration until we have a little clearer picture.
We are hopeful that by August 23, 2021 the COVID situation will allow us to host a fun day of golf for tournament participants. Our first priority is the health of all our players, volunteers and staff at Priddis so we will have to adjust our normal tournament format to keep everyone safe. We anticipate that foursomes will have assigned tee times to spread out the arrival and departure of golfers instead of our normal shotgun scramble format. Food service will also be adjusted. We are planning for food service to most likely be outdoors. Prizes will be awarded virtually. Winners will be notified and prizes delivered after the tournament completion.
How are you going to participate in the Gordon Hoffman Charity Golf Tournament?
Becoming a sponsor provides you with a fantastic opportunity to promote your business to the 200+ golfers who attend the tournament and beyond through additional promotional activities. Your company will receive additional promotional benefits as you are recognized as a sponsor in all our pre and post-tournament advertising. You can promote your business while you give back to the community. Bronze level and higher will be recognized in newspaper thank you ads after the tournament.
