Tournament Schedule


Registration Opens

Come early - coffee, donuts, fresh fruit, Bloody Mary bar, the driving range, and our putting contest await you prior to tee off. This will also be a great time to purchase one of our golf packages which include the Hot Shot Golf Ball Air Cannon (a huge hit last year) and mulligans.


Tee Off

After breakfast and meeting a few of our students and athletes, play the amazing south course (shotgun scramble format) enjoying lunch, snacks and drinks along the way.


Cocktail Hour & Helicopter Golf Ball Drop

After golf, join us for appetizers and cocktails while meeting some of the students and athletes you are supporting. The helicopter golf ball drop will be the finale of the event at 3:45. Be home for dinner!



Thank you for spending the day with New Vista School and Spirit League. We are grateful for your support and look forward to seeing you again next year.
