AUGUSTA (WFXG)- The Apartment Association of Greater Augusta is prepping for its annual charity golf tournament, Tee Off Fore Tatas at Mount Vintage Golf Course has been rescheduled for Monday, October 15th. Event registration and breakfast begin at 8 a.m. The tournament will wrap up at 4 p.m. after awards are distributed.
“We were nervous about having to change our venue last minute from Jones Creek to Mount Vintage, but we could not be more pleased,” said Shelly Martin, event chair. “The course looks amazing and the staff has been great to work with so far. We also now have the advantage of 27 holes instead of just 18, so we were able to open up spots for more teams! We are really getting excited!”
The tournament raises awareness and support for the Georgia Cancer Center at Augusta University to fund breast cancer research. Over $80,000 has been raised for the center in the last eight years.
“Last year we raised over $22,000 for breast cancer research at the Georgia Cancer Center, and we hope to do even better this year,” said Martin. “The main objective is to have a good time while showing support in our community in the fight to cure breast cancer.”
Tee Off Fore Tatas is open to the public and welcomes players of all skill levels. Registration costs $150 for single players and $500 for teams of four. Sponsorship levels start at $100. Donations of any amount are also appreciated.
