Tee It Off FORE the Kids Golf Tournament
Presented by Johnstone Supply
November 13th, 2021

Tigers Eye at Ocean Ridge Community, Ocean Isle, NC

Join us for a fun event at an award-winning course. This event benefits the Carousel Center.

Your sponsorship helps make it possible for Carousel to continue its mission to provide a nationally accredited, child-friendly environment to meet the needs of abused and neglected children and to support child abuse prevention efforts in Southeastern North Carolina.  At the event we will:

  • educate attendees of the Carousel Center’s mission to provide expert, comprehensive intervention services for child victims of physical and/or sexual abuse.
  • Raise much-needed funds to support the mission.
  • Have fun!

This Tournament will be played at one of the four Big CATS courses.  Tiger’s Eye is an upscale, daily fee course carved from a virgin pine forest. The course is distinguished by dramatic elevation changes, reminiscent of the North Carolina sandhills. Tiger’s Eye is a thinking person’s course, requiring precision shot-making and a reliable short game. The course hosts a stunning combination of natural waste areas, native grasses, wildflowers, pine and oak trees, and water features, including marshlands and waterfalls. Tiger’s Eye has been recognized by several national golf publications as being among the best in the country and is an annual award winner.
