On Sunday, July 23, 2017, a diverse group of golf enthusiasts, business executives, celebrities and influencers came together for the Original Tee Golf Classic (OTGC) at Wild Turkey Golf Club. The OTGC features a competitive golf tournament, professional instruction, a Nine Hole Youth Competition and spectator activities.
The OTGC is a premier celebrity/amateur tournament created to celebrate the African American golf enthusiast and pay homage to pioneers in the game of golf. Its vision is to bring together a culturally diverse mix of urban professionals to an exciting tournament reflecting their lifestyle preferences. This event draws golf enthusiasts from across the country, representing leaders in business, finance, entertainment, sports and technology. Get registered now!
The OTGC proceeds will go towards the funding of an Original Tee Junior Golf League to participate in PGA Jr. League Golf in the PGA of America Met Section. PGA Junior League Golf is designed to bring a “Little League” atmosphere to the game of golf. With teams of boys and girls, age 13 and under, PGA JLG provides a structured league environment for young golfers to compete and have fun! This is a great way to get and keep kids involved in the game.
