Woodstock Country Club Tournament of Champions 2019Woodstock Country Club is hosting the seventh annual Zack’s Place Tournament of Champions, September 27th, 2019. The event includes a wine-tasting with hors d’oeuvres, live entertainment, a helicopter golf ball drop, and both a silent and live auction!

If you love a good game of golf, wine, a chance to win some money, and an opportunity to do some good, you do not want to miss the upcoming Zack’s Place Tournament of Champions in Woodstock, VT.

The tournament’s main goal is to raise funds and awareness for Zack’s Place, a local organization dedicated to the empowerment of special-needs people of all ages.

Zack’s Place was founded in 2006 by the parents of Zack Frates, who was a teenager with Cerebral Palsy. Zack died in 2011 but the center lives on in his memory, serving many in the local community. The annual Tournament of Champions is a major fund raiser for the center.

Another reason to attend the Zack’s Place golf tournament is that it takes place at Woodstock Country Club. Woodstock Country Club, founded in 1895, is the oldest public golf course in the state – and less than 10 minutes from Deer Brook Inn.

The challenging, 18-hole course was designed by Robert Trent Jones, Sr., is surrounded by the lush and entrancing Vermont landscape. It was named the #3 Top Golf Course in New England by Golf Advisor and one of the top 100 golf resorts by Golf Magazine.

The full-service club features a pro shop, practice range, putting green, private lessons, and a restaurant with a bar.

The numbered golf balls are sold to players prior to the drop. After the drop, the ball closest to the pin wins the grand prize, followed by 2nd and 3rd place winners.

The grand prize, determined by the number of players, could be as much as $5,000, 2nd place $2,500, and 3rd place $100. Golf balls will be sold for $50 apiece. Prizes will be awarded during the auction that follows the tournament. You do not need to be in attendance to claim your prize.
