First Rock the Fairways Pinktober Golf Tournament comes to Sevier County


Hard Rock Café Gatlinburg wants golfers to “think pink” on Friday, September 27 as a new golf tournament makes its debut at the Sevierville Golf Club to benefit breast cancer awareness.

The golf tournament kicks off Hard Rock’s 14th Annual PINKTOBER™ breast cancer awareness campaign, which locally will benefit the Paint the Mountains Pink campaign. Special features for the tournament include great prizes during the 18 holes of golf at every hole and a hole-in-one chance to win a new car. Following the tournament, golfers will enjoy a splashy cocktail hour at the Wilderness at the Smokies resort’s outdoor waterpark, followed by shuttle service to Hard Rock Café Gatlinburg for awards and dinner.

Hard Rock’s commitment to breast cancer awareness and research continues throughout October with PINK menu offerings, limited-edition merchandise and WOMEN THAT ROCK performing every Friday night at 9:00 p.m., benefiting Paint the Mountains Pink and The Dr. Robert F. Thomas Foundation. Golfers can register by calling (865) 430-7625; the entry form is available at www.wildernessatthesmokies.com.
