If you know that you are ready to sign up, you can download this form or contact the Community Relations department to reserve your foursome today. We can be reached by email or by calling (919) 861-5474.

The price breakdown to participate in the golf tournament is as follows:
  • Foursome: $3,250
  • Threesome: $2,437.50
  • Twosome: $1,650
  • Individual: $875
Over the years, the golf tournament has generated much-needed funds for children and their families in our community. The generous support of corporate sponsors and golf participants allows the Kids ‘N Community Foundation to offer monetary grants to qualified non-profit organizations that focus on the health, educational and underserved population needs of children in our community. Last year’s golf tournament raised $89,000 for the Kids ‘N Community Foundation. During the 2010-11 season, the Kids ‘N Community Foundation awarded a total of $539,771 in cash grants to 71 different children’s charities.

The golf tournament has become a great way for the Foundation and Hurricanes supporters to kick off the new season. Foursomes are paired with a Carolina Hurricanes player, coach, front office executive or broadcaster for a round of golf. The day is capped off with a post-tournament reception where the top three low net and low gross teams are announced and on-course games/contest winners receive their prizes.

Other golf tournament highlights include:
  • We hope to continue the tradition of a VIP Pairings Party prior to the tournament where Hurricanes players, coaches, broadcasters and front office staff join participants and guests for the golf pairings announcements. Details for this are yet to be determined, so keep checking back for more updates.
  • Tournament gift bag valued at $250 for each participating golfer.
  • Complimentary on-course food and beverage
  • Commemorative photo of your foursome and Hurricanes celebrity
  • On-course games like Closest to the Pin, Accurate Drive and Hole-in-One.
  • Prizes for the top three low net and low gross golfers which include a top prize of an all-inclusive luxury suite and a meet and greet with select Hurricanes players after the game.
We are looking forward to kicking off another year of fundraising to help improve the lives of children and their families in our state. The golf tournament provides a unique experience on the course, and also your participation will have a direct, positive effect on the lives of children and their families in our community.
