About the Archer Western Charity Golf Outing
The tournament began in 2003 as a center of the citizenship efforts within the Archer Western Construction's Atlanta headquarters, with the idea that a company supported by a community should give back to the community. With barely enough golfers to fill an 18-hole course, the first year’s proceeds reached $21,000 and were distributed to three different charitable organizations.
Since then, the annual event has grown to include over 250 golfers playing on two 18-hole courses, over 50 volunteers and supported by over 185 different companies. The strong relationships that Archer Western has established over the years with subcontractors and vendors has contributed to success as a general contractor, and contributed significantly to the success of the golf tournament. The Archer Western Charity Golf Outing and has donated over $1.2 million to charities to date.
