Frisco Chamber of Commerce will hold the 31st Annual John Weinberg Golf Tournament on Monday, October 9, 2017, at TPC Craig Ranch located at 8000 Collin McKinney Parkway in McKinney, Texas, beginning with a shotgun start at 10:00 AM. TPC Craig Ranch’s outstanding championship layout ranks among the top private golf courses in the United States according to Golf Digest
. This year, 140 golfers in teams of four, will compete for first, second, and third place and a Hole in One prize.
The golf tournament provides the opportunity for local businesses to build positive relationships within the business community and reward employees with a day out of the office. In addition to playing in the tournament, local businesses are participating as tent sponsors, banner sponsors, player gift bag donors, and volunteers. Events of the day include shooting golf balls from an air cannon, Longest Drive, Closest to the Pin, and a new event added this year, “Mulligans for a Cause.” A portion of the proceeds of the purchased mulligan balls will be donated to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, based in Frisco, Texas.
The Presenting Sponsors are Caliber Collision and Scheef & Stone LLP. Both have been presenting sponsors of past tournaments. Land Rover Frisco is the Hole in One Sponsor. The Player Gift Bag Sponsor is Frisco Station. Silver sponsors include: Baylor Scott & White - Frisco, Baylor Scott & White - Centennial, CMT - Construction Management Technology, Dowdy, Anderson & Associates, Inc., Hall Park, and Town & Country Roofing, Inc.
The tournament is named after former President of the Frisco Chamber of Commerce Board and tournament founder, John Weinberg. For many years, Weinberg served as the tournament’s chairman. After his diagnosis with cancer, the Frisco Chamber of Commerce Board named the tournament in his honor. John’s wife, Sharon Weinberg, attends the tournament each year. A quote from former Mayor Bob Warren sums up John’s life. “John Weinberg was the best community man I ever knew. John made it his business to find needs in the community and then worked until he found ways to meet those needs.”
