It’s time to tee-up for Tibbits as plans are underway for Tibbits Annual Golf Tournament to be held Monday, June 20, at the Golf Club of Coldwater. A benefit for the general operations of the Tibbits Opera House, organizers are seeking event sponsors, hole sponsors and golfers.
Working on the event, the Tibbits Golf Committee consists of Mike Beckwith, Hillary Eley, Rolla Frisinger, Rachel Herbig, Paul Herbig, Jody Lewis, John Rohloff and Pat Sampsel.
The committee has been working on event sponsors; two title sponsorships are still available at $500 or $1000. The committee is also seeking hole sponsors at $100 and, of course, golfers. Businesses as well as golfers interested in joining the event as an event or hole sponsor may contact Tibbits or a member of the committee to learn more about the advertising, recognition and tax benefits available.
The tournament is a handicapped, 18-hole scramble, and opens with a 9 am shotgun start. Four-person teams in men's, women's and mixed divisions will compete for cash prizes for net and gross winners. The event also offers door prizes, games, and hole events including a chance to win a $10,000 hole-in-one prize. A raffle sponsored by the Foundation Golf Center will offer a chance to win a complete set of top grade Adams Irons.
The golf tournament is one of the major fundraising events for Tibbits. Committee chair Mike Beckwith says, “This is a fun community event. We’re thankful for all the past support for Tibbits and really just hope everyone turns out for a good time and a worthy cause.”
Early bird registration for the tournament is $100 per golfer and includes golf cart, range balls and lunch by the Club House Bar & Grill. To become an event sponsor, a hole sponsor or register a team, call Tibbits at 517-278-6029.
