More Information

There has never been a better time to help others by playing golf.  At TPC Scottsdale, we are doing our annual food drive – Golf Fore Groceries.  If you bring in 5 canned goods, you’ll receive a discount on your golf fees at both courses, Stadium and Champions. On Stadium Course, you can golf for $50 + tax with 5 canned goods and the Champions Course is $39 + tax before 12:00 p.m. and $29 + tax after 12:00 p.m. This offer is good any day of the week until September 2nd, 2010.  To book your tee time, call 480.585.4334 ext. 1 or book on-line at and enter promo code: groceries.  

The cans are donated to Foothills Food Bank in Cave Creek, Arizona. The Food Bank was founded in 1988 by several churches and the Foothills Community Foundation. They provide emergency food to those who occasionally must choose between groceries and keeping the utilities on.  Privately funded, they serve Cave Creek and parts of the Northeast Valley and rely on the donations and kindness of others to keep their organization running. Both food and monetary donations are always appreciated.

Not only are they looking for canned goods, but they could really use rice, cereal, peanut butter, jelly, juice (non-refrigerated), Pasta Sauce, Canned Pasta, Canned or Dried Fruit, Potato Side Items, Rice and Pasta Side Items, Saltine Crackers, Coffee, Sugar, Dry Laundry Detergent, Small Bottles of Cooking Oil.  

There are also many golf tournaments in the valley that are tied to helping a charity. These are a great way to make a difference while doing what you love, golfing. In this economy, there are so many people that need help. If together, we can make a small difference in someone’s life, we’ll be heading in the right direction.  

So, the next time you want to go play golf, know you are helping someone in need, as well.
