FUNd Tournament financed numerous projects

CROSSVILLE — Due to the overwhelming support by so many individuals and businesses, we were able to finance many needed repairs along with funding new projects including the canopy covering the 19th Hole patio. Golf Course Superintendent Todd Mathews and Head Golf Pro Matt Phipps, along with their staffs, are committed to making our course one of the best on the plateau. The support we receive from our members, local businesses and management allows us to maintain and improve one of Lake Tansi’s prized jewels. We continue to grow our golf package business, which helps support our cabin rentals along with bringing in revenue to our restaurants.

We have placed signage in the Pavilion and Pro Shop highlighting different levels of sponsorship. Without this support we would not be able to accomplish much needed programs that make our golf course an attraction to not only members, but to folks visiting our wonderful community. See attached Project List.
