Panther Golf Foundation was established in 2012 to host elite national junior golf events. The Foundation focuses on raising money for The First Tee and other junior golf initiatives, while allowing the junior golfers to play in a relaxed, enjoyable atmosphere. Our mission is to attract juniors to the game of golf by offering playing opportunities on nationally recognized golf courses in a fun and non-competitive environment, where the children feel a strong sense of accomplishment through their individual fund raising efforts. These golf events are not tournaments; they are unique opportunities for the junior golfers to play golf – the game they love – and raise money through their play on the course. Our events are open to seasoned tournament players as well as novices wishing to find more tournament-like experiences. The players will secure pledges for bogeys, pars, birdies, and eagles. A majority of the money raised will be presented to our benefactor charities. In 2013 we received our government issued tax exempt status, and are now a 501.c.3 non profit organization.
