The 2013 Woodcreek Classic
Monday, August 26-Sunday, September 1
The NGA Pro Golf Tour returns to Columbia again as The Members Club hosts the Woodcreek Classic August 26-September 1, 2013. This tournament is more successful each year for The Members Club and this year will be no exception. This golf tour is a proving ground for future PGA pros. However, the NGA Pro Golf Tour is not just a practice venue for aspiring young pros. In 2012, the total payout for the NGA Pro Golf Tour winnings topped $6 million! More than 190 NGA alumni have played or are now playing on the PGA Tour and they have a total of 70+ PGA tournament wins among them.
This year during the Florida swing, Kevin Streelman (Tampa Bay) and Michael Thompson (Honda), who both played at Woodcreek, were champions. Also, NGA alumni have over 14 Majors to their credit. Other recent Woodcreek alumni to win on tour are Keegan Bradley and Ted Potter who both played at Woodcreek.
This year, the Club's plans are to again raise $15,000 to be donated to the local Ronald McDonald House charities. So far, The Club has donated over $65,000 since the inception of the tournament.
You too can be a sponsor for this very worthy cause. If you are interested in being a sponsor and having an opportunity to play with one of these future stars, please e-mail Stan Luallin (Committee Chairperson) at firstname.lastname@example.org. One of the traditions of The Members Club's hosting of this event is that our Club Members host one or more of the competitors in their home for the length of the Tournament. If you would like to host one of these future stars at your home, please email Don Davis at email@example.com for more information.
We hope that all our members will come out and watch the competition. The Clubhouse will be open for you to enjoy food and beverages while you follow the players. Come out to take advantage of the opportunity to see this high level of play right here at your own Club!
