SHCC Instrumental in the Success of The First Tee of Tulsa Youth Golf Program
Southern Hills Country Club Charitable Foundation was instrumental in establishing The First Tee of Tulsa in 1999 to benefit the youth of Tulsa. Revenue from the 1995 and 1996 PGA TOUR Championships and additional contributions were placed in the Foundation and, since that time, the funds have been invested. (The Foundation is supported entirely by sources other than the Club's operational and capital funds.) The proceeds from these investments have been used to support The First Tee of Tulsa. In addition, Club management has actively solicited funds from local and national organizations to support these programs.
Southern Hills Country Club conducts the annual First Tee of Tulsa Charitable Golf Tournament every year and the total of the net proceeds from the tournament are used to support this program. Since the tournament began in 2001, over $1,095,000 has been raised. The 2016 tournament is slated for Monday, October 10, with an 8:30 am and 1:30 pm shotgun. Details will be available in Summer 2016 or contact Nancy Acton at 918-477-5274; firstname.lastname@example.org.
Great strides have been made in the development and expansion of The First Tee of Tulsa youth program. For more information contact Janice Gibson at 918-591-4168 or JGibson@TheFirstTeeTulsa.org.
