What is Golf & Guitars?
Golf and Guitars is a celebrity pro-am golf tournament and concert featuring nationally recognized & major label country music artists that raises money for two key children's charities here in Sacramento. Each golfer in the tournament gets to play with one of the celebrities and then gets a seat next to the stage where these artists put on a tremendous concert underneath the beautiful golf course sky. Each artist will be play 18 holes with a foursome in this scramble event. It’s one of the rare opportunities to spend several great hours with a great musician in a relaxed atmosphere.

Who gets the money?
100% of the net funds are donated between two children's-oriented non-profit charities. The mission of the Morton Golf Foundation, a 501(c)(3) charity, is to provide golf programs that provide exercise in a healthy outdoor environment, to create a recreational environment that builds lasting personal development and that seamlessly introduces life’s core values of the great game of golf to the youth, disabled and underserved communities in the Sacramento region. The Keaton Raphael Memorial, is also a 501(c)(3) charitable organization that supports children with cancer and their families by providing emotional, educational and financial support, while increasing awareness and funding research toward a cure. Over $100,000 has been raised in previous years events.

  1. Check out a variety of new social sites to find a golf property you are looking to improve your game. These sites offer excellent opportunities for social golf membership to play in an extreme reduction in the club area, and often arrange for local competitive advantages of a golf tournament for those who are in competitive golf. As with other groups that are united, the new and unforeseen events can occur at any time. If you are serious about the game of golf, combining a social network that covers the sport can only be to take the game to the next level.
