Please note that the date for the “Tee It Up Fore Autism Golf Classic” has had to be pushed back to Monday, September 14, 2015 from the original April date. The golf course that we are using was bought by Club Corp, which has scheduled extensive remodeling to the clubhouse as well as upgrades on the course (improving the bunkers, cart paths, etc.) and the work will not be done until some time in May. This, however, will only make for a much better tournament for everyone!
