   The Gainesville Jaycees invite you to join us for the 4th annual Carlos B. Elmore Golf Tournament. The tournament will be held at the Chicopee Woods Golf Course on October 23rd 2020.  Registration begins at 8:00am and an In Between Deli lunch will be provided.  Players will tee-off at 9:00am as a shotgun start. Foursome teams will compete in a scramble formatted golf tournament with awards and prizes to follow the round.

   Over $1k worth of prizes and raffle items will be up for grabs, complimentary drink tickets for each player, longest drive, and closest to the pin.  This will be one of the funnest tournaments you will play all year! Sign up soon as this tournament will sell out.

   Proceeds from the Carlos B. Elmore will go directly towards the Gut Check Program. The Gainesville Jaycees are a 501(c)(3) non-profit and all entries, donations, and sponsorships are tax deductible. We thank you for your support and look forward to seeing you all on the course!


   Started in 1997, GUT CHECK was created by the Gainesville Jaycees to teach young men discipline and leadership in a safe and structured high energy environment.  A scholarship program free of charge for the participants, GUT CHECK is held over the course of three days each July.  The program begins on a Thursday afternoon with intense activities and culminates with a graduation ceremony on Sunday morning. 

  Beginning in 2017, the young men will be housed in dormitories at the Riverside Military Academy for the duration of the weekend.  Though the activities throughout the weekend vary, they are all designed to teach leadership skills, teamwork, communication and how to better deal with tough situations to achieve goals in life. These activities include rappelling instruction, obstacle courses, individual challenges and team building activities.  In addition to the activities, the young men will also hear from several prominent speakers throughout the weekend.  These speakers often offer a 'been there, done that' aspect to which the participants really connect.  The aforementioned graduation ceremony is a very uplifting experience as the graduates begin to implement the lessons learned from the previous three days as parents, teachers and loved ones look on.

   The conclusion of the weekend does not mean an end to the GUT CHECK program.  Follow up activities are done at each middle school throughout the year.  Typically as simple as having breakfast or lunch with the young men, it allows a continuation of the positive influences formulated during the GUT CHECK weekend.  As previously mentioned, GUT CHECK is free of charge for the participants.  The program is funded by the various fundraising efforts of the Gainesville Jaycees, which are supported by local individuals and businesses who understand the benefits this type of program offers.  

    This program is as equally rewarding for the Jaycees that support it as it is for the young men who participate.
