Putting For A Purpose

19th Annual Stirling Invitational Golf Tournament

Stirling Properties’ Annual Stirling Invitational Golf Tournament Raises $25,000 for local charities!

Stirling Properties hosted its 19th Annual Stirling Invitational Golf Tournament on Monday, November 11th at University Club Plantation in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. This year’s tournament successfully raised more than $25,000 for local charities!

Although the original tournament date was unfortunately rescheduled due to inclement weather, more than 100 golfers participated and brought their A game, enjoying a variety of friendly competition in addition to 18 holes of scramble golf tournament play.

Congratulations to the 1st Place Low Net winners, Bryan Hobnett, Callen Hotard, Justin Langlois, Chip Lavigne and Hunt Vaughn. The Low Gross winning team included Barrett Dick, Brett Hymel, Shawn Folks and Dex Shill. 

The Longest Drive award went to Jason Williams, and Closest to the Pin prizes were presented to Justin Glenn, Wheeler Graf, Dan Smith and Rhett Hymel. Additional awards were given for 2nd and 3rd Low Gross and Low Net. A special shout out to the Highest Gross scoring team, Steve Legendre, Chad Calongne, Mitch Rotolo, Mitch Rotolo Jr.

All the putting was for a purpose though, with local nonprofit organizations benefiting from the tournament proceeds. Ochsner Foundation received $10,000 from the proceeds, and the remaining profits will be distributed to various local charitable causes.

Representatives from Ochsner Foundation were on hand to receive a check for their contributions. Grady Brame, Executive Vice President with Stirling Properties, presented a check to Jason Ruggles, Assistant Vice President of Corporate Real Estate with Ochsner Health System, during an awards celebration and cocktail reception following the tournament. Rick Perry, President and CEO of Tiger Athletic Foundation, was also presented with a $1,000 check to TAF for the LSU Golf Team. 

“Despite having to reschedule the tournament—from our original date in October—due to some pretty nasty weather, the Stirling Invitational Golf Tournament was still a huge success. We were once again able to raise funds for local nonprofit organizations that are doing such great work right here in our communities. We are grateful for the generosity of our tournament sponsors and thank everyone who came out to support us. We hope to see you next year!” said Brame.

The Stirling Invitational Golf Tournament has contributed more than $264,000 to numerous organizations over the past 19 years.
