Tournament runs NOW until September 8, 2020
Imara International is ready to host our 2020 Charity Golf Tournament with a “virtual” twist! Play with your favorite foursome, at your favorite course and you pick the date. Play locally, compete globally.
Join Us for a Round of Golf!
Golf courses are now open and many of you are playing safe, socially-distanced golf. We are asking golfers to play a round for Imara! Pull together a foursome or sign up your weekly foursome team. Each team member will register on Eventbrite for a $100 entry fee that is 100% tax deductible. Note: registration fee does not include your local course fees.
You will compete “virtually” using the 18Birdies app. It maintains handicap information and tracks your foursome’s score against other tournament teams.
Want to improve your score? Strokes are for sale at registration for $25 each, that will be deducted off your net score, just to keep it all fun!
Check out the official Imara Leaderboard and see what the competition is doing from coast to coast or around the globe.
Here's How it Works
Pick Your Foursome
Select a Team Captain
The Team Captain will register first, listing the team name and three additional players.
Register the Team
Each player will register separately in order to receive the 100% tax deductible benefit. Registration fee is a $100 donation. Each player will need to know the Foursome Team Name to register. Check with your Team Captain for details.
Buy a stroke, lower your score! The key to winning this tournament may be the number of golf strokes purchased at registration! $25 per stroke will be taken off your net score.
Make Additional Donations
And of course, additional donations are welcome. We thank you for your support.
Pick Your Course – Team Captain only
Team Captain, once your full team is registered, you will be emailed your team code.
Download the 18Birdies app on your iPhone or Android device, free of charge.
Build your profile, player names, and thenadd your handicap. No handicap, no problem, check out the tournament rules for more information. Team Name will be filled in by 18Birdies.
Select the golf course, select your tees and play golf. The 18Birdies app takes care of course handicaps and net scoring, including official handicaps, slope and rating info by USGA and tees for the course you pick.
To qualify you must play and post one (1) qualified round at a course of your choosing (Par 71 or greater).
Pick Your Date & Play
Virtual tournament play runs from July 17-August 17, 2020.
Golf rounds played before or after the posted dates will not be eligible for the tournament.
Send Us Your Photos!
Since we won't have volunteers taking photos, help us record the event by taking some "shots" of your foursome.
Group photos, action shots, silly poses, environmental, or other ideas are welcome.
Cell phone cameras are a perfect option!
Check Out the Competition
Once play begins, the Official Leaderboard will go live.
Winning categories will be: Men’s, Women’s and Mixed. The winning foursomes will be contacted and shipped their winning trophies. They will also be published on the Imara International website.
Winners agree that Imara International has the right to communicate to their constituents regarding the tournament.
Support Our Imara Teen Moms
Not a golfer? Can’t play a round this summer? Help us support Imara moms by donating now! We still have moms and children (two new babies!) on site at Imara House. And although some of our teens and their children have been ordered “home,” we continue to support them with food, medicine and other needs. We need your help. Please consider donating as we make our way through the COVID-19 crisis in Kenya.
A huge thanks to our 2020 tournament sponsors!
We are so very thankful for our sponsors who make this tournament possible every year and support the work of Imara International. We could not do it without you!
Highlights of the 2019 Tournament
As play progressed at Rush Creek Golf Club, cheers erupted at the 7th hole. BMW of Minnetonka and PGA Tour Superstore had sponsored hole-in-one contests. Rob Smolund, a member of the Midwest Immunology foursome, had made a hole-in-one! Rob won a BMW M40i two year lease and a $1,000 shopping spree at the PGA Tour Superstore. By the way, his team came in first for the tournament.
Rob did not really need another car so in lieu of the car lease he accepted $10,000. Rob then donated $5,000 of it to Imara International. What a great example for others to follow.
