Steve Young’s Desert Classic
Giving to charity and having fun playing in a golf tournament is one of the best combinations. Steve Young, former NFL quarterback, hosted the Desert Classic celebrity golf tournament and family-friendly night to raise money for his own charitable organization, the Forever Young Foundation, as well as the Anasazi Foundation. His charity supports other non-profits and community groups like the Anasazi Foundation that help the needs of troubled underprivileged youth.
Young and his NFL, NBA, and MLB friends played at the Troon North Golf Club in Scottsdale. The following evening, there was a family-friendly night at Crackerjax Family Fun and Sports Park.
Does “Least Sober” Mean Best or Worst at Golf?
For the charitable event’s celebrity golf tournament portion, Tempe Trophy had to come up with a fun little “Least Sober” trophy. The production team had to brainstorm how they could create the best trophy for this idea. Eventually, they decided to put an actual Pabst Blue Ribbon can on a black marble base. This is not the first time we’ve added real-life beer cans into the mix; it has been done for several custom Fantasy Football trophies. Because the fun beer can design had been such a hit previously, it was a no-brainer to implement it into this quirky trophy. On this “Least Sober” trophy, we crushed the can to show its emptiness and attached a “goofy” golfer (who may have had one-too-many) to the top. Of course the trophy turned out awesome! Our team can do any custom project requested, big or small.
Don’t Underestimate Golf Fashion
The tournament is competitive in more ways than just golf scores. The Forever Young Foundation also requested another creative custom trophy for the Desert Classic. This trophy was for the “Best Dressed.” It began with a gold cactus on a black marble stand, but the best part is that the cactus itself was best dressed. The cactus was suited up with a black bow tie and suit cuffs on its arms. Players were required to wear their best golf attire in order to score this custom trophy. A green suit would have been a hit. Our custom trophies are hand-designed and made-to-order for special events like this one. We have a lot of fun doing what we do best!
Speaking of Golf Accessories…
We’re not amateurs in the golf department. Previously, we have engraved items such as the divot repair tool and ball marker, golf ball presentation box, golf clubs, as well as other golf trophies. Our divot repair tool is the perfect gift or award for any golf lover. And, what makes it more awesome is that it’s shaped like a pocket knife It’s a trophy that you can take with you (and brag about) on the course.
At Tempe Trophy, we take the the time to perfect the gifts and awards that you need to be made. Although making all kinds of trophies is pretty fun, custom ones allow both you and us to use our creativity more. We take your instruction, together we create a design, then we turn it into whatever award you need to perfect your event.
