IFB Golf Tournament to Benefit Blind Programs

IFB Solutions will host its Captain’s Choice Golf Tournament on Friday, Sept. 24, at the Grove Park Golf Club, 290 Macon Ave., in Asheville. The even is open to the public and signups are still available.

The tournament will welcome Phil Blackwell, six-time Masters for the Blind U.S. blind golf champion, five- time Champion of American Blind Golf Match-Play Championship and five-time American Blind Golf Stroke Play Champion joining the field to help raise money for IFB’s programs and services.

“Phil is such an inspiring player who can often be found hosting clinics and encouraging others, both sighted and blind, to love the game of golf,” said David Horton, IFB Solutions president and CEO. “We’re so fortunate to have him join this year’s event.”

In addition to playing the legendary Grove Park Golf Course, participants will have the opportunity to test out their putting skills blindfolded in the Putting in the Dark contest and enjoy a pre-event reception at the Highland Brewing Event Center in downtown Asheville.

Golfers can play in the tournament as individuals ($250 per person) or as a foursome team ($850 per team). The format is a four-person scramble with a shotgun start at noon.
