Another Successful Tee It Up Golf Scramble Is In the Books!
Team Mountain Pride Cleaning and Restoration has golfed with us all 13 years!
This year’s Tee It Up Golf Scramble sold out for the fourth year in a row and was the most successful tournament to date, raising over $80,000 for BOEC’s adaptive outdoor programming, including the Keystone Adaptive Center and BOEC’s Heroic Military Program. A special thanks goes out to all of our sponsors, golfers, volunteers, Keystone Ranch staff, and virtual auction bidders for making all of this possible.
Our golfers describe this tournament as one they look forward to year after year because it is well organized, fun, and supports the BOEC. Several foursomes have been “teeing-it-up” on Keystone Ranch Course since the tournament began in 2008. It is not all originals though as we sold out with 144 golfers (36 teams) in June, including eight new foursomes.
Golf Carts for BOEC’s 13th Annual Tee It Up Golf Scramble Lined Up for the 10AM Shotgun Start
After coffee and a breakfast burrito, golfers grabbed a bagged lunch and beverage thanks to in-kind supporter Vail Resorts/Epic Promise, and lined up in their carts with their Tee It Up Swag Bag and new BOEC Golf Shirt for the 10 AM shotgun start. Once on the course golfers headed out for 18-holes plus the usual tournament challenges including a longest putt, men’s and women’s longest drive, closest to the pin, and a beat the pro contest (see winners listed below).

Putting Contest Winner, Mark Burgeson with his Grandfather’s lucky golden ball!
To conclude time on the green, new this year was a putting contest for ten lucky competitors, including winner Mark Burgeson, who sunk the 50ft putt with his “grandfather’s golden ball.” He was quick to donate the 50/50 prize drawing immediately back to BOEC- thank you and congrats Mark!
The virtual auction also returned for the third year in a row and helped raise over $22,000 for the BOEC. Thank you so much to many community supporters who donated and participated in the auction!
Door Prizes included therapeutic massagers, golf gear, spa certificates, golf clubs, BOEC apparel and more!
