Our mission is to mobilize the local community to raise funds and provide scholarships to make post-secondary education possible for deserving students.

We were conceived around a simple idea: together we can step in and help local students achieve their educational goals. There's no greater gift we can give our student neighbors-in-need than access to the tools to create a brighter future. Doing so tells them that we take pride in their determination and share their dreams.

Be captivated by the beauty and challenge of Rockrimmon Country Club while supporting education in our community.  This year we are so pleased to host our Tee It Up for Scholars event at this critically acclaimed, Robert Trent Jones, Sr. venue. The golf will be exceptional, with perfectly manicured greens and challenging fairways.

And we promise to provide sumptuous food and drink before, during and after play. A fantastic BBQ lunch will greet each player upon arrival. Beverage and snack stations will be available during play. And golfers and dinner guests will enjoy the view from the main clubhouse during our reception and dinner.
