2020 Red-Tailed Hawk Invitational

The Red-Tailed Hawk Invitational (formerly known as the Men’s Member-Guest Tournament) is the elite event showcasing Tellico Village. The 2020 Red-Tailed Hawk Invitational is scheduled to be held on October 21st – October 24th. This fall date will afford us the best possible weather and course conditions. Our guests will be able to experience the best that East Tennessee and Tellico Village has to offer.
The 2020 Tournament Committee has been working hard to come up with the best possible plan for an event considering the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. This year’s event will be more of a traditional golf event minus the large social gatherings (participants stag night, the ladies luncheon and the banquet at the Yacht club).

Past year participants have the first opportunity to sign up for this event. However, every year there have been numerous opportunities for NEW teams to sign up and participate in the event. Because there is an excellent probability that there will be more NEW teams applying than available slots, a lottery will be held to determine which teams get in the event and also determine the order of the waiting list. Based on prior years’ experience the chance of “winning” this lottery and gaining entry into the Red-Tailed Hawk Invitational will likely be as great as 50:50 or greater!
