Social Events
Above all else, the focus of the Father and Three Sons Golf Classic is on fun and friendship.  To that end, there are quite often social opportunities built into the official agenda.  While attendance at these events is entirely optional, they represent a great chance to forge new friendships and experience the spirit of the event that has kept so many families returning year after year.

Over the past several years, a Thursday evening/night social event has been put on.  Past variations have been a reserved room at a local pub/restaurant, a host suite at the recommended hotel, and extended bar/patio hours at the golf club following the Thursday round.

Thursday evening social events are available to anyone involved in the tournament.  Many families unable to get away during the day for a Thursday round still attend the Thursday evening social, using it as a chance to catch up with old friends and poll the day's golfers on how the course is playing.

Accommodations
Families are responsible for booking and paying for their own accommodation (if required).  When possible, the host family will arrange for a standard rate (and block rooms up to a certain date) at a local hotel or resort, available to families staying Thursday and/or Friday night.  Accommodations details will be communicated in the .

Sponsors/Prizes
While there has been limited sponsorship in recent years, the event is generally unassuming and non-commercialized.  It has become customary for the Host Family to request that any family able to do so provide items for the "prize table".  It is not mandatory to do so.

If you are in a position to furnish prizes, it is requested that they be golf-related (i.e. balls, umbrellas, totes, bag towels, etc.)  Depending on the quantity of donations, the Host Family then determines the format for allotting the prizes (such as random draw).

The event is entirely non-profit, with any surplus proceeds being passed to the next year's Host Family to cover unexpected costs.  In the past, when the surplus allowed, Host Families have donated portions to a charity of their choice (i.e. Ronald MacDonald House, Big Brothers, and Lou Gehrig’s disease).
