The 19th Annual AudioMasters Benefit Golf Tournament returns to Harpeth Hills Golf Course in Nashville on Thursday, May 12, and Friday, May 13, 2016. AudioMasters is a production of the Audio Engineering Society Nashville Section on behalf of the 503c2 non-profit corporation Nashville Engineer Relief Fund(NERF Inc.), created to assist members of the greater Nashville audio community in times of personal or family crisis.
“Our community rallying behind NERF has changed many lives for the better,” says NERF Secretary Frank Wells. “The best thing we do as a community is funded by the premier event of the year, doing good and having fun. It doesn’t get much better.”
Day One—Thursday, May 12—is the “JBL Professional AudioMasters Live Day,” focusing on the live sound industry and welcoming JBL Professional as the title sponsor.
Day Two—Friday, May 15—is the “Sweetwater AudioMasters,” the studio-community-focused day under the banner of perennial title sponsor Sweetwater Sound.
Both days include breakfast, open driving range, a four-person scramble, and awards receptions following the golf, along with an abundance of treats and beverages along the way.
Confirmed sponsors include Genelec, J Sound Services, DCR Digital Console Rentals & Rack Armor, Clyne Media, Solid State Logic (SSL), Pepper’s Pro Shop with Vine Street Liquors, Black River Entertainment at Sound Stage, NTS Pro Media, Vintage King, API, Clair Global, Froggy’s Fog, Echo Mountain Studios, Southern Ground Nashville, Welcome to 1979 Studios, Audio-Technica, Iron Mountain, Blackbird Studios, Crown Seating, The Recording Academy Nashville Chapter/P&E Wing, the Audio Engineering Society, Trew Audio, VeVa Sound, Dickinson Wright, Corky’s BBQ and the Recording Studio Insurance Program, with more lining up by the week.
These sponsors provide support for the event in various capacities: hosting holes or special prizes, useful swag, general financial support, and more. Some join in the golfing play as well. Those hosting the holes give each tee its own twist; most provide food or other refreshments, along with side games, product demos, swag and plenty of networking opportunities.
Player and sponsor registration is filling fast, though there is still time to get in on the festivities as a sponsor partner or in a golfing foursome.
