Beyond the course and into the community

The Ambassador of Golf Award is presented annually to a person who has fostered the ideals of the game on an international level and whose concern for others extends beyond the golf course.

In keeping with the spirit of the award, the annual fundraiser was introduced in 2019 by presenting sponsor FirstEnergy Foundation in collaboration with the Bridgestone SENIOR PLAYERS Championship.

The combined efforts of this inaugural event raised more than $825,000 to benefit organizations including the Akron Canton Regional Foodbank, Akron Children’s Hospital, Cleveland Clinic Akron General, First Tee of Greater Akron, Summa Health System, United Way of Summit County, and University Hospitals Rainbow Babies & Children’s.

Since 1984, more than $29 million has been raised by tournaments at Firestone Country Club and distributed to local non-profit organizations through Northern Ohio Golf Charities Foundation, Inc.
