Making The Pros Possible

When several of my former classmates and I toured the Brainerd High School facilities back in 2021, we were reminded of what a special place it truly is. We discussed for a couple of months ways to give back and finally landed on the Game Winning Drive golf tournament. We wanted to really emphasize having a premium and extremely fun event while raising a meaningful amount of money for the youth athletic programs that were foundational to our development. The support we were shown last year was truly unbelievable, and we can’t wait to do things bigger and better this year and for years to come.

Thank you.

Money To Build The Warrior Way

In 2022 the Game Winning Drive raised $30,000 for the Brainerd Warrior Football Association. The funds were used on various desperately needed items such as equipment, pads, jerseys, footballs, etc. The inaugural event also saw a stunning participation turnout, with a sold-out event of 144 golfers and many other teams on the waitlist. The weather was beautiful, memories were made, and the impact from the support from our community was immense.
