Let’s put the “FUN” back in in “fundraiser” this year – support the future of our industry while indulging in an afternoon of guilt-free golf! Organized and hosted by the Tree Care Industry Association Foundation (TCIAF), proceeds from the Robert Felix Memorial Golf Tournament benefit students of arboriculture by financially supporting two different programs: TREE FUND, and TCIAF’s annual Student Career Days event at TCI EXPO. Not only are you funding the future by playing, but the Marina Vallarta Golf Course, home to this year’s tournament, offers one of the most scenic golf courses in the area. You will enjoy views of lush vegetation, natural lagoons and the shores of Banderas Bay. It's an unparalleled golf experience surrounded by the Sierra Madre and Banderas Bay.  And its directly across the street from the Marriott! Grab your clubs, recruit your friends and plan on an afternoon of good-humored competition! Registration includes beautiful views, a shared cart, green fees, lunch, beverages, awards reception and prizes. Pre-registration is required. Haven’t had the chance to perfect your swing, but still want to support future arborists? Partnership opportunities are available! Consider sponsoring a hole or hosting a golfer challenge.
