— Annual event to be held at MountainGate Country Club in L.A. —
Los Angeles CA, May 11, 2015 — A date has been set for the 2015 Recording Industry Golf Tournament™ (RIGT), which will be held Monday, June 29, 2015, at MountainGate Country Club, with the shotgun start at 12:00 noon. The event is again being organized by seasoned event producer Karen Dunn of KMD Productions LLC and will support the music program at A Place Called Home, a dynamic community center and safe haven in South Central Los Angeles where underserved youth 8-21 years old are empowered to take ownership of the quality and direction of their lives through programs in education, arts, and well-being. Recording veterans Ed Cherney and Al Schmitt will return as Honorary Co-Chairs for the afternoon’s festivities.
Dunn is now accepting participation entries, whether as sponsors, golfers or both. In addition to the 18 holes of pristine golfing, the day will include a $1 million shoot-out opportunity, a hole-in-one Hyundai giveaway, a Bartels’ Harley Davidson motorcycle hole-in-one giveaway, scotch tasting, great food, poker, a “19th hole” and more. The picturesque course, designed by legendary golf course architect Ted Robinson, is centrally located, not far from downtown L.A. The course features beautiful views, a driving range, putting and chipping greens, and much more. Dunn and the industry veteran Rose Mann-Cherney will be driving the “world famous tequila cart” to make sure all of the day’s participants are playing their best.
New this year is live streaming on the 6th hole from Absolute Live Productions. The transmission of this live stream will be utilizing the TVU 8200 HD wireless cellular backpack. Dave Rosen, CEO of Absolute Live Productions, notes, “I've played in this particular tournament a number of times over the past several years. The thing that always strikes me during tournament play, is it is very exciting the early part of the day to see all my old friends in the recording industry, and after the shotgun start I lose track of them until the very end of the game. With live streaming golf we will have the opportunity to catch up and look at the scores throughout the entire game. This will allow the golfers on the course to be able to know what their opponents score is in real time.”
The list of confirmed sponsors includes Audio-Technica, Clyne Media, Bob Hodas Acoustic Analysis, Guitar Center Professional, Hyundai, Icebox Water, JBL, NAMM, The Recording Studio Insurance Program, Sterling Audio, studioexpresso.com, Transaudiogroup, United Recording Studios and Westlake Recording Studios, with more being added by the week. Hyundai will once again be taking the winning foursome to their Hyundai National Invitational in Vegas.
