2018 Inter Atlanta FC Golf Classic 2018 Inter Atlanta FC Golf Tournament By Matt Busch For 2018, Inter Atlanta FC teamed up with Smoke Rise Golf and Country Club to host our annual golf fundraiser. Thank you Josh Deal and his staff at Smoke Rise for taking such good care of us. This year we had 18 foursomes and over 14 key sponsors for the event. The event brought together, Inter members, coaches, staff and business owners for a beautiful day of golf, networking, fundraising, food and beverages. The weather was perfect, the course was in great shape and the foursomes were scoring low which is a perfect recipe for not only a great day on the course but a great day for club support. This year we added some games within the round of golf to go along with our normal hole in one, closest to the pin and longest drive. Wells Fargo Financial Advisors used the 10th fairway for the “Hit the Hoops” game. If a golfer was able to hit their drive into one of the five hoops on the fairway, Wells Fargo would donate $1500 each time. On the par 4 8th hole, we had the “Pro’s drive”. Thank you Karen Paolozzi for volunteering your time and hitting some great shots for us. For this game on the 8th, Karen would hit your foursome’s drives from the ladies tee, which made the tee to green shot only about 210 yards. Most foursomes took advantage of this game and Karen hit some very nice shots to get some foursomes putting for Eagle. Overall the event was a huge success and our goal of netting $15,000 from the event (used for scholarship and operations) was exceeded. Thank you again to everyone who sponsored, played and supported the event. We are looking forward to next year’s golf tournament which will be held in September.
