IDA Golf Tournament

Heritage Golf Links
4445 Britt Road
Tucker, Georgia 30084

11:30 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. – Wed., April, 19, 2017

The IDAExpo Golf Tournament is a significant fundraiser for the IDA Scholarship Foundation. Not only will the event provide fun for all the participants, it will also benefit students as they expand their educational horizons via IDA Scholarships.

Originally opened in 1996 as “Heritage Golf Club,” the golf course was nominated that year as one of the “Best New Golf Courses in America” by Golf Digest magazine. Today, the golf club still boasts one of the highest slope ratings in Georgia. The golf course at Heritage Golf Links is designed around a 20-acre lake, with water in play on several holes. The course’s rolling terrain and dramatic elevation changes provide stunning vistas, and golfers of every skill level love playing our challenging yet fun layout.

Dress Code: Proper attire including collared shirt. Soft spikes ONLY.

Deadline for registration is March 31, 2017.

Before the President's Awards Banquet

The IDA Scholarship Foundation will sponsor its first Silent Auction for Education at the IDA Expo before the President’s Awards Banquet. The Auction will help the Foundation continue providing deserving students with post high school educational opportunities.

The Scholarship Foundation has awarded $1 million in financial assistance to students whose parents or employers are part of our industry community.

This auction will take place at the same time as the pre-banquet social, in the spacious lobby area adjacent to the President’s Awards Banquet ballroom. Guests will have 90 minutes to view the items up for auction prior to the doors being opened for banquet seating.

The IDA Scholarship Foundation is asking for contributions for the event. There are no limitations as to what types of items can be donated for the silent auction.
