At the beginning of last week on the 12th of September, our founder Brad Patterson, attended a celebrity golf tournament hosted by the Otis Nixon Foundation. It was hosted by the legendary Major League Baseball player, Otis Nixon. He was a force to be reckoned with in his time when he played as a center fielder and switch-hitter, hitting a total of 11 home runs in his career. If you follow our Facebook updates, you must have had a glimpse of the awesome moments our founder shared during this event. Here is why you shouldn’t miss out on such events:
We are not just talking about a bunch of personalities. The Celebrity Golf Charity event brought out the big guns especially in the sporting industry. Starting from Otis Nixon himself. If you have a hint of passion in sports, then you can meet your favorite stars in this event. Brad Patterson, our founder and CEO met with his professional peers and it was an amazing time for him and Golf4Community as a whole. He even admitted that even though sportsmen are naturally competitive, at such an event, all that is set aside.
It only becomes about giving, sharing connecting and having a great time! Other big names that Brad got to interact with are: the two-time Olympian Melvin Pender, Ron Grant the former baseball player now a news anchor at Fox 5, Artis Gilmore the basketball player and John Rocker, the former baseball pitcher for the Atlanta Braves. And these are just a few of the names that were there, you should attend to have a first-hand experience!
More than Just Playing Golf
Of course, your first reason might be to get a glimpse of your favorite celebrity icons making their way around the golf course. There are still a few extra features you can still count on.
For example, you can get to watch some interesting challenges such as the closest to the pin contest and longest drive contest. There is usually a lot of cheering which brings high spirits. In the longest drive challenge the winner is determined by distance traveled. Such mini-tournaments within the Celebrity Golf Tournament provide excellent opportunities to get closer to the participants and maybe even interact with them.
The Otis Nixon Foundation hosted the event at Marietta Golf Club which is undeniably one of the most beautiful places you can visit. The scenery is amazing and you can even be accompanied by your whole family. You can even book a room at one of the properties for some afternoon and evening fun to make some unforgettable memories.
One of the best things about Celebrity Golf Tournaments is that you can get close to the celebrities and even have a few autographs. Furthermore, you can take a few photos with the stars and rub it in all your friend’s faces with some clever hashtags all over social media.
Everything that takes place at the event encourages togetherness and sharing among the community. Make a point of rising up to the occasion to make a difference whenever you can.
