“This year we expect more than 70 golfers to participate,” said Russell F. Pedro, 2018 Golf Chair. “Golfers can expect, a great time and exciting surprises throughout the tournament, including a ‘Happy Gilmore’ and ‘Play-It-Forward’ holes and a special ‘Hole-In-One’ Hole, where you have a chance to go home with a custom Golf Cart sponsored by Albuquerque Forklift.”

Also sponsoring the event is Real Time Solutions, who will provide tote bags, tees, ball markers and divot repair tools for every player.

The tournament is open to both conference participants and the general public; registration starts at $125 per person / $500 per team. The registration package includes greens fees, a goodie bag, golf cart rental, access to the driving range, lunch and a post-tournament concert featuring the JIR Project Band. There are a limited number of sponsorship packages still available to market your company or organization.

The tournament will be a four-person Scramble with a shotgun start at 9 a.m. Prizes will be awarded to the first, second and third place teams. Players (men and women) with the longest drives, closest to the pin and hole-in-one will also be eligible for prizes.
