The Northern Texas PGA (NTPGA) holds an annual fundraising golf tournament for the benefit of the NTPGA Junior Golf Foundation. This year the event raised $147,500.00.
The annual tournament has a tradition of recognizing the career accomplishments of golf’s greatest ambassadors and players who have roots in Texas. This year the event honored Darrell Crall, Executive Director of the Northern Texas PGA Section from 1995-2011. Among Crall’s greatest accomplishments with the Northern Texas PGA during his tenure included the growth of the Section’s assets by 15 times. Crall is now the senior director of the PGA of America’s Golf 2.0.
Fifteen (15) teams were featured in the event consisting of three amateurs, a tour player and PGA of America golf professional. Past and present PGA TOUR and LPGA Tour stars that participated in the event included Chad Campbell, Charles Coody, Jason Enloe, Harrison Frazar, Hunter Haas, Todd Hamilton, Mina Harigae, Brandt Jobe, Justin Leonard, Bruce Lietzke, Gerina Piller, Bill Rogers, Lee Trevino, Lanny Wadkins, and D.A. Weibring.
Advantage Hole In One provided hole in one coverage for a vehicle on each of the Par-3 holes. Each player had the chance to win a total of four (4) different luxury car and SUV vehicles. Providing this opportunity to our participants greatly enhanced the playing experience and added an excitement on the golf course that is difficult to replicate. Advantage Hole In One was a fantastic partner that created a wonderful additional value for our donors.
