Annual Golf Tournament

Thank you for making the 34th Annual Golf Tournament a great success!
The 34th Annual Golf Tournament was held on October 18, 2021, at The Woodlands Country Club Palmer Course. Thanks to the 200 plus golfers who came out to enjoy the day, the event was a major success. The dazzling weather and sunshine greeted golfers who arrived at the course. The event kicked off just before noon and lasted into the evening, culminating with an awards ceremony and dinner. The tournament was made possible by the generous support of our Ace Sponsor – Pate Family Foundation and many others, including LGI Homes, Signorelli Company, The Joint Chiropractic, Conceptum Logistics, LLC, Farouk Systems, Inc., and TransAmerican Power Products.

Thank you to the event chairs Kristin Baadsgaard and Nacole Nath, their committee members, and all who came out to support The John Cooper School and the Dragon Booster Club. This tournament directly benefits our programs and provides support to advance athletics. Your participation helps every student-athlete succeed.

Additional thanks go to all of the Birdie, Hole, Faculty Sponsors, individual players, and volunteers who supported the tournament.
We look forward to another great tournament in 2022!
