Tee sponsorships available at Elephant Rocks

The Elephant Rocks Golf Committee wants to make improvements to the level of the golfing experience year upon years. Being a municipal golf course does however, put budgetary restrictions upon these improvements. While the quality of the playing conditions has never been better, it is those other improvements to the facilities that have suffered.

The golf committee has decided that one of the main improvements they would like to see occur is to replace the existing tee markers with a more descriptive type of sign. The signs are guaranteed for 20 years. The cost of these signs is rather expensive and beyond the means of our present budget, so the committee is offering sponsorship on the signs.

For a fee of $1,000, your company name can appear on one of the signs for five years - that's just $200 per year. At the end of five years you can continue with your sponsorship for just $200 per year.

If you would like further information about the program, call Brian James, Committee Chairman at (928) 600-4436 or Brent Redman, PGA Professional, at (928) 635-4935. To reserve your space call Brian James who will inform you of the holes still available and be pleased to take your booking.
