The Footprints of Charity Golf Tournament sends teams of four driving and putting over the gently rolling hills of Stone Creek Country Club as they raise funds for humanitarian, educational, and spiritual aid at home and abroad. Holding to the tenets of four-man-scramble-style play, the tournament snakes over 18 holes as golfers take turns shooting from the best of four lies or combining powers to hit a single ball at the exact same time. Chipping and putting through the verdant par 72 course, players navigate a gauntlet of sand traps, doglegs, and narrow fairways en route toward a challenging 18th hole hugged by a creek and capped with a rolling green. In addition to the four-man scramble, tournament contestants are entered in longest drive and closest-to-the-pin challenges, which reward excellence in a single aspect of the game, just like college football's bounciest onsite kick trophy.
