Held on Independence Day, this event started when a London-based US executive traded in his barbeque tongs for golf clubs.
The Futures for Kids 4th July Golf Day all started from a conversation with the CBOTs, late Bob Ray. Bob loved what we do at FFK, enjoyed his golf, and knew a good idea when he heard one.
So, when FFK’s Trustees pitched the first Independence Day US holiday golf event to him in 2010, the CME didn’t hesitate to get right behind it.
Now, fourballs formed of players from software vendors, banks, brokerages, exchanges, and consultants, all play to take the silverware home named in his honour: The Bob Ray Memorial Trophy.
Sponsorships start at £1,500
