The 26th annual Music Row Ladies Golf Tournament is scheduled for Mon., Aug. 27 at Old Natchez Country Club in Nashville. The long running charitable event supported by the music industry industry is a day of fun on the links for a good cause—often with celebs, zany costumes and libations.
The tournament had its biggest fundraising year in 2011, and has earned over $1.6 million for United Cerebral Palsy of Middle Tennessee since the event launched.
Reservations at the invitation only tournament are $125 per golfer and $100 per caddy.
Returning sponsors include ASCAP, Kenny Chesney, City National Bank, McGhee Entertainment, Moes, Tim McGraw, Richards and Southern, and UMG Nashville. Those interested in sponsorship opportunities can email Herky Williams.
