Golfers have two opportunities approaching this spring to have a memorable experience while benefitting the First Tee of Tulsa.

The 16th annual First Tee of Tulsa Charitable Golf Tournament will be held at prestigious Southern Hills Country Club on May 21. This event has traditionally been in October but is moving up to accommodate upcoming renovations at Southern Hills.

The popular event offers shotgun starts at 8:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. Contestants will vie for prizes for low net and low gross teams in a shamble format using 50 percent handicap. Cost is $500 per person and sponsorships are available running from Presenting Sponsor at $9,500 to 19th hole sponsor at $800. Click here for details.

The event is the major fundraiser for the First Tee of Tulsa, based at Mohawk Park Golf Course. The First Tee of Tulsa, established in 1999 and run from the outset by former LPGA Tour player Janice Gibson, reaches thousands of young golfers and potential golfers annually through its in-house and outreach programs. More than 20,000 children have participated in Tulsa and the tournament has raised more than $1,339,000 in the previous 15 years.

Get your entry in as soon as possible as this event fills up rapidly each year.

Another option to support The First Tee of Tulsa is to put together a team for the second annual Masters Classic, April 4 at the FlyingTee at the Riverwalk Terrance in Jenks. Click here for more information.

The Masters Classic, scheduled from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m., is an 18-hole scramble on world-renowned Pebble Beach Golf Links using the sophisticated simulators and ball tracking technology including ProTracer at FlyingTee.
