Aces for Autism Golf Tournament


June 4th, 2016

Downriver Golf Course

1:30 PM Shotgun Start

Registration is OPEN!

The First Tee of the Inland Northwest is pleased to partner with The ISAAC Foundation to bring you the Aces for Autism golf tournament!

Aces for Autism is a shared event held to benefit The First Tee of the Inland Northwest programs and students with special needs.

This tournament will be played as a traditional 18-hole scramble ... but with a slight twist.  Tournament participants will test their skills with some of The First Tee golf activities that will not only keep them laughing but show them how these activities improve golf skills while seamlessly introducing the Nine Core Values inherent with golf.

If you don’t have a team but would like to participate, please contact us and we’ll be happy to put you with a fun group of people.

Adult registration:   $85/player 

Junior Registration: $65/player (only two junior players per team)

You will hit the golf course for a great round of golf and golf skill activities. There will be plenty of prizes followed by dinner and an award ceremony.


Registration is through the ISAAC Foundation webpage.
