13th Annual Rush Invitation
In Loving Memory of John Rush
13th Annual Rush Invitation
The Staff at Feather Sound Country Club is proud to host the 2015 John Rush Invitational. This event will provide golfers with an enjoyable, challenging tournament on our recently remodeled course. This year’s winners will be decided by 36 holes of a Modified Stableford Competition (Team Quota Points). The Club will award prizes for the Overall 1st, 2nd & 3rd place teams, and Best Team Scores for Day 1 and Day 2. John wouldn’t miss a tournament like this for anything. The tall tales and big laughs make the competition a pleasure for all participants. Supporting a great cause, spending time with close friends and family, and sharing food and drinks makes it an event to remember. This gathering will be a microcosm of the way John Rush led his amazing life: with gusto, style, and profound integrity. He was a great guy and he is sorely missed by all who knew him. Let’s join together in celebrating a man who lived his life with passion and brought happiness to everyone he met. We are looking forward to your participation in this first-class event. The tournament will provide an enjoyable test of golf, great camaraderie, and the certain opportunity to make new acquaintances.
