NFL ALUMNI GOLF
The most important shot in golf is the next one
History of Alumni Golf
The NFL Alumni started out as a collection of bright-colored, polyester-pants wearing, retired players living in Florida. Their Fort Lauderdale tournaments in the 60’s and 70’s became so popular that they decided to form an association. It took only a little rotary dial telephone work to convince other retired football players to start chapters in their hometowns and NFL cities. The chapters started holding their own tournaments and it didn’t take long for the testosterone to take over and force a tournament of champions. That event today is a mega production known as the Super Bowl of Golf. Like NFL champions, Super Bowl of Golf champs receive massive rings!
Golf is the perfect game for traumatized recently discarded professional football players. The guys appreciate the fact that, unlike football, no one will ever take their golf clubs away. Like the PGA Tour, NFL Alumni golf is centered around giving back to charities. The PGA Tour has passed out over 3 Billion dollars! The NFL Alumni chapters historically donate over a million dollars to local children’s charities annually. We proudly estimate a conservative 30 million dollars donated since 1967.
Golf is so important to the NFL Alumni that we have cherished partnership agreements with companies like Ship Sticks, PXG, Wilson Golf, Showtime Grips, and GOLFTEC. Many of our players are practically “on tour” playing in dozens of tournaments around the country for appearance fees, free travel and lodging, and fancy gift bags. GOLFTEC is our newest partner and boy do they have a challenge ahead of them… anything from triple oversized grips to undoing crazy made-up swings to teaching NFL lineman to wrap broken and bent fingers around a club. GOLFTEC Pros are about to develop a lot of grey hair.
