Each year, NGFA members compete on the golf course to the benefit of the National Grain and Feed Foundation , the research and public education arm of the grain, feed and processing industry. 100 percent of the money raised from National Grain and Feed Foundation Golf Tournament tickets supports the Foundation, which relies on contributions from companies and individuals to fund projects that benefit the entire industry, including safety education and training, policy research and regulatory compliance. This year the tournament will take place on-site at the Ritz-Carlton's course, The Golf Club of Amelia Island.
Exhilarating play for all levels of golfers combined with amazing year-round weather and gentle breezes off the Atlantic capture the experience at The Golf Club of Amelia Island. Designed by PGA Tour veteran Mark McCumber and legendary golfer Gene Littler in 1987, this award-winning 18-hole, par 72 course has been recognized worldwide as one of the Top Golf Resorts by Condé Nast Traveler and as one of the Best Places to Play by Golf Digest. Lush and meticulously manicured, challenging but never frustrating, the championship course’s diverse layout with stands of moss-draped century oaks guarding the front nine and rolling marshes and more water on the back nine reward patience and good decision-making. Helping you to navigate the course are carts equipped with GPS and a friendly, experienced staff willing to make your experience memorable and unique.
Registration for the NGFF Classic is limited to the first 144 players, so register to play today. Players will be given the opportunity to assemble playing groups as the event nears. The cost is $195; of that amount, $51 represents a tax-deductible contribution to the Foundation. The entry fee includes greens fees, carts and all contests. Club rental information can be found HERE . Please note that lunch is on your own before the tournament begins. Once again, NGFA-member sponsors will provide fabulous prizes to the low-scoring foursome, longest-drive winner, closest-to-the-pin winner, longest putt winner, and hole-in-one on a designated hole.
