A Message From The Host

Phil Oates

I have been blessed to play in many outstanding golf tournaments throughout the country. During those travels,
I have become friends with iconic athletes and well known celebrities. What has impressed me is not their status, but
that they are even better people. We are bringing these friends to the Sacramento community. The Inaugural Phil
Oates Celebrity Golf Tournament merges both a first class golf tournament with celebrities, for a memorable time.

It is important the tournament be unique from beginning to end. Our pairing night will be at the Sawyer Hotel
with headline entertainment. The golf tournament will be held the following day at the newly remodeled North Ridge Country Club. It is the best golf course in the Sacramento area. We promise tee prizes that are valued and unique, and will be a featured part of your golf equipment. But the cornerstone aspect of the tournament is the quality of our celebrities. You will rub shoulders with athletes and infamous celebrities all within the social FUN of a golf tournament.

The profit from this tournament will be spread over a half dozen charities covering a variety of needs. Golfers will be
provided transparent information on the exact dollars given to each charity.

I personally promise this will be more than a golf tournament, it will be an event. You will not want to miss it.
