The Golf Ball is The First Tee of Northwest Florida’s annual gala and signature fundraising event. The gala is designed to celebrate the kick-off of golf season in Masters Tournament fashion. However, this isn’t your typical black-tie, sequined-dress affair…. it seems that Augusta National has been over-run by caddies and groundskeepers! The Golf Ball is where you’ll want to wear your favorite golf attire–be it a green jacket, argyle socks, country club favorites, plus-fours, or Loudmouth. Prizes are given for best-dressed! All of this is in good fun to raise funds for our Chapter!

500 attendees will be treated to a very memorable experience. In addition to a live and silent auction (featuring travel packages and plenty of golf memorabilia), guests will be able to try their luck at a $5,000 50-foot putting contest, enter a raffle to win a golf cart, and show off their moves on the dance floor to a live band—all to benefit the programs of The First Tee of Northwest Florida. The menu is modeled after the Masters Tournament and includes pimento and cheese sandwiches and peach ice cream. A top-shelf bar—featuring the signature cocktail “Gopher Juice”–is also available. Our hope is that you will help us make this an extraordinary evening that will raise a record-breaking amount of funds for the children in our programs. *This is a 21 and up event.

–Sponsorships and Group Discounts available!

Golf is more than a game at The First Tee of Northwest Florida. We are a non-profit 501(c) 3 organization that positively impacts the lives of young people by promoting character development and life-enhancing values through a “Life Skills Learning Experience” and the game of golf. Through after-school and in school programs, we help shape the lives of young people, ages 5–18, from all walks of life by reinforcing values like integrity, respect and perseverance. Our Chapter is based in Pensacola, and we receive no direct funding from The First Tee national organization, all money is raised locally and spent locally. This is what makes your support so important. Thank you for your consideration.  Skills Learning Experience” and the game of golf.
