There is more to the Hearts & Hammers Golf Classic, happening April 29, Meadowbrook Farms Golf Club, noon shotgun start, than just a cute name.
“Hearts & Hammers is the name of their volunteer driven home repair program that restores the exterior of homes for low-income homeowners. And to reach our goal, to continue our mission it takes people with lots of heart who can swing a hammer. This annual golf tournament benefits this program, plus, when it comes to golf, players need these same skills you might say, hence the name of the tournament,” said Ron Castillo, executive director, Fort Bend CORPS.
Outside of the golf tournament, one of the highlights of the event is dinner. The Award Winning Tejano Outlaws Cooking Team will be cooking up a barbeque dinner with all the trimmings that keeps people coming back every year.
Fort Bend Corps hopes to have 36 teams of four at this year’s tournament, 144 players, which is slightly more than last year.
“We are looking for golfers of all skills, and teams of both men and women. This time of year the weather is beautiful and we all know it won’t last long, but while it does we are going to enjoy it – on the golf course that is,” Castillo said.
There are many sponsorship packages offered, with numerous benefits.
“With this being an annual event, we have learned over the years what golfers are looking for in a sponsorship package, so that is what we offer,” said Castillo.
“Come out, play some golf, have some fun, enjoy dinner, and support the only non-profit in Fort Bend County who provides free home repairs to the Fort Bend Community since 1999, which benefits the entire county,” Castillo said.
