Annual Sam Jackson Charity Golf Outing

Each year T.G.I.F., Third Golfers in Fellowship, hosts an annual golf outing so we can play golf together and invite friends and family who are not Third members to join in the fun!     After the Captain's Choice golf tournament, there is a dinner (or lunch) with an inspirational speaker.  Included in the very reasonable price are: greens fees and cart; practice balls set up one hour before start; dinner (or lunch) after the golf round; short inspirational message; prizes awarded for various things (long drive, closest to the pin on Par 3's, best dresser, etc.).  Our goal is to get 144 golfers and to have a hole sponsor for each hole, and proceeds go to a ministry or mission. 

Our 2017 tournament will take place in June  19, 8 am - Noon @ The Richmond Country Club.  Check-in at 8 am with a shotgun start at 9 am.    This Captain Choice format is suited for all levels of golfers and non-golfers. This outing is open to all men, woman and teens!  Individuals or pairs can sign up and will be placed on teams.  The cost of $80.00 per golfer includes: green fees, golf cart, range balls, lunch, and a $25.00 tax deductible donation to this year's charity - Virginia Treatment for Children.  During our lunch, the Samuel W. Jackson Award for Golf Outreach and Fellowship will be  announced. Click here for history of recipients.
