2020 THCW Golf Tournament and Scholarship Foundation
It is that time of year again! Grab your golf shoes, polo shirt and join us for our 3rd Annual Texas Hill Country Wine Golf Tournament hosted at Horseshoe Bay Resort on January 20, 2020. Texas Hill Country Wineries is a non-profit trade association and proceeds from the event will go towards Texas Wine education, marketing, and scholarships. The scholarship fund was first established in 2015, a portion of event ticket sales and profits are awarded to Texas students working towards a degree supporting the wine industry. Over the past few years, approximately $27,000 has been awarded and the program continues to grow thanks to event supporters throughout the years. This year, we look forward to adding to that fund and reaching several more students!
With your purchase of a ticket, you can expect an enjoyable day of golf on the beautiful 18-hole golf course of Horsehoe Bay Resort with an ounce of added friendly competition. Teams of 4 and individual golfers are invited. We’ll start the day off with team and single-player registration, which includes a complimentary light breakfast. Then hop on your golf cart and enjoy the course! We’ll have a break for lunch and conclude the day with prizes for single-players, teams, and a raffle. Not a golfer, but still want to show your support? We have spectator tickets and sponsorships available. Register your team before registration closes on January 10th.
About the Scholarship
We are proud to say that in 2018, Texas Hill Country Wineries awarded $10,000 to 9 students enrolled at Texas A&M University, Texas Tech University, and the Philly Wine School. We would not be able to do this without the help of donors, like you, and our sponsors. A portion of proceeds from our event ticket sales, field day profits, and individual winery or business donations go towards this scholarship fund. Our Community Outreach Committee is charged with awarding academic scholarships to Texas residents enrolled in a school or college program related to and benefiting the Texas Wine Industry. “Receiving the THCW scholarship has been such an honor. It is so incredible and so encouraging to know that I have the support of the Texas wine industry behind me in pursuit of my goals and dreams. The THCW scholarship has aided me financially and has also provided me with many networking opportunities with individuals in the industry” says Claire Richardson, Texas A&M University 2017 recipient, explaining how the scholarship has impacted her education. We believe in investing in our community. We are proud to help fellow Texans gain the knowledge they need and can bring back with them to help enrich the Texas Hill Country AVA.
