The First Tee of Louisville 6th Annual Golf Tournament Registration



2017 Balloon Ball Drop

The 3rd Annual Balloon Ball Drop will occur at Seneca Golf Course, following the Tournament on September 21.

What’s a Balloon Ball Drop and how does it work?

First, you need to buy a golf ball (all will be numbered, up to 1,000) by purchasing a $10 numbered ticket. Then, at the conclusion of the Scramble, all the numbered golf balls will be loaded onto a Balloon, hoisted to the tethered height, and then the Balloonist will drop the balls over a flag on the 18th Fairway. The ball closest to the flag will win $2,500. Kevin Greenwell, the Head PGA Professional at Seneca Golf Course, will determine the winner.


You are not limited to one ticket.

You do not have to be in attendance to win.
