The WNC Foundation will host the 20th annual Golf for Education Tournament on Friday, Sept. 27 at the beautiful Toiyabe Golf Club. This fun-filled event offers the opportunity to golf and give back at the same time. 

Presented by Northern Nevada Development Authority, contributions from the tournament support workforce development in the region by helping educate students to meet the growing labor demands in industries such as manufacturing, cybersecurity, nursing, welding and automotive mechanics.  

Participants in the golf classic will be treated to great tee prizes, a delicious luncheon, an awards ceremony, on-course refreshments, raffle prizes, hole-in-one prizes, team photos and much more. The cost is $125 per player, $480 per four-player team or $700 for a business team sponsorship.


This very enjoyable day includes many opportunities to win prizes for long drive and closest to the pin, as well as several hole-in-one prizes. This year’s tournament also features the Golf Ball Launcher, propelling your ball up to 450 yards down the fairway, thanks to a sponsorship from Carson City Toyota!

Golfers have an opportunity to test their skills at Toiyabe Golf Club in WNC Foundation’s 20th annual Golf for Education Tournament on Friday, Sept. 27.

This year’s sponsors include Northern Nevada Development Authority, Greater Nevada Credit Union, Allison Mackenzie Law Firm, Carson City Toyota, Classic Finishes, JP Morgan Chase, Advanced Healthcare of Reno, United Federal Credit Union, Briggs Electric, Agate Construction and Amada Senior Care. Sponsorships are still available by calling 775-445-3239.
