From May 3-9, The Nashville Predators, a NHL team based in Nashville, Tennessee, are teaming up with the Tennessee Golf Foundation - a nonprofit organization that promotes golf and its life-enhancing values statewide - to sell tickets, premium hospitality, and sponsorship packages for the 2021 Simmons Bank Open for the Snedeker Foundation. This event will take place during the Korn Ferry Tour at The Grove’s signature Greg Norman course and will feature two Pro-Ams. The Grove is regarded as one of the state’s top private golf facilities. Featuring Zoysia fairways and Bermuda greens, the course stretches 7,300 yards long from its championship tees and seamlessly incorporates the natural landscape into its iconic design.
As Middle Tennessee’s only PGA TOUR-sanctioned tournament, the partnership with the Nashville Predators, The Grove Club, and other sponsors will strive to create a great environment to give back to the Tennessee community and Snedeker Foundation. Prior to four rounds of tournament play, there will be a number of events in the first half of the week including a Sneds & Friends Welcome Party at Topgolf, The Sneds & Friends Pro-Am, and the Official Simmons Bank Open Pro-Am.
This foundation has worked hand in hand with the Simmons Bank Open since 2018 and is looking to align its missions with the Nashville Predators Foundation. The goal is to support a variety of social and athletic endeavors for underprivileged children in Middle Tennessee and beyond. The proceeds collected from this event will benefit the Snedeker Foundation; the foundation created by 2021 FedExCup champion Brandt Snedeker and his wife Mandy.
“We are excited to host the Simmons Bank Open,” said Mark Enderle, partner at The Grove. “Providing the opportunity for young golfers to learn and grow in their game and fostering the next generation of passionate players is core to the mission of The Grove.”
