Proceeds from this year's tournament will benefit CASA of Collin County. CASA of Collin County's mission is to train ordinary citizens to become advocates for children removed from their homes due to abuse and neglect. These CASA Volunteer Advocates provide a powerful voice in court for these vulnerable children and advocate for their best interest.  

Gentle Creek Golf Club is a member's only club in Prosper. Its scenic layout meanders through 235 acres of manicured fairways and wooded countryside. Carved into the gently rolling terrain, this golf course offers an immensely pleasurable game for the average golfer, with enough subtle nuances to challenge the more skilled player. The course features intriguing elevation changes, picturesque water hazards including a spectacular 22-acre lake and large TifEagle Bermuda greens groomed to perfection.

The tournament will feature a variety of on-the-course contests as well as other fun golf elements. Golfers are scheduled to tee off at 11:30 a.m. with a shotgun start.

Sponsorship opportunities are available and proceeds help CASA fulfill its mission of providing the highest standard of advocacy for 100% of Collin County's most vulnerable children. Registration includes lunch, on-course refreshments, player gift and goodie bag, post-tournament buffet and awards reception. The silent auction and raffles will provide the players with the chance to win awesome items.
