2016 Swing Fore Education Golf Tournament

Fifth Annual Golf Tournament

FIFTH ANNUAL SWING FORE EDUCATION GOLF TOURNAMENT For the 5th year running, the Canton Rotary Club (CRC) is proud to host the "Swing Fore Education" Golf Tournament partnering with the Canton Educational Foundation (CEF). The event will be hosted at the beautiful Twin Lakes Golf Course on Friday, October 14. After a noontime lunch catered by Jalapeno Tree, a Shotgun Start 4-Person Scramble will begin at 1:30 p.m. This event is only possible because of generous sponsorship by local businesses who share our passion for local educational success. These sponsors include Kevin Lilleys McDonalds, City National Bank, Legacy Dental Group, First State Bank of Ben Wheeler, Wal-Mart, Epic Industrial, Eubanks Funeral Home, Mr. Ds, Medical City Dallas, Staubus & Randall, Tailwind Airpark, Wholesale Tires, Canton Paint & Body, Legacy Ag Credit, Texas Bank and Trust, 2 Hot Chics, TA Hale Allstate, Peoples Communications and many other local supporters. Last year's tournament raised over $33,000 for education in Canton, with funds awarded by CEF via grants to educators at all four CISD campuses and scholarships to five graduating seniors selected via an essay contest. Additionally, eighteen scholarships were awarded to graduating students from CRC. These two organizations share a common goal of making sure that Canton schools maintain their exemplary status and are working to increase this year's contribution to education in Canton. This year 112 players are expected to compete for prizes including a Hole in One prize of a 2017 Ford Focus provided by All Star Ford, and multiple other prizes. First, Second and Third Place team members will receive footballs autographed by Dallas Cowboys current stars and former All-Stars. Players will also enjoy hospitality tents and gift bags including custom RTIC insulated tumblers, and drink carts will be making rounds throughout the day. If you need information about playing in the tournament, a limited number of spots are still available and there are additional sponsorship slots open for your participation.
