The Golf Tournament Committee plans, coordinates, and hosts our annual golf and mini-golf tournaments to raise money for scholarships. Proceeds from the tournaments benefit continuing education programs and scholarships for students studying architecture in the 2+2+2 architectural degree program. To date, the tournaments have raised over $360,000.
The AIA Orlando Golf Tournament began in 1989 when a group of architects wanted to create opportunities for students to pursue higher education in the field of architecture right here in Central Florida. The tournament has evolved over the years, and now brings architects and design professionals together with vendors and allied professionals from A/E/C industries for a day of friendly competition. In 2020, the first annual mini golf tournament was held to give non-golfers the opportunity to participate in the fun.
