The event, which normally takes place in the spring, has been moved to August due to the work on the course. Twenty-five teams from throughout the Tennessee Valley will compete, with sponsorships and entry fees supporting the Foundation.
Registration and breakfast will start at 7:30 a.m., with the shotgun start at 8:30. There will be an awards luncheon at 1 p.m. following the tournament.
Hole 13 includes a hole-in-one contest, with the chance to win a 2023 Land Rover Discovery Sport. Other contests will include longest drive, putting and closest to the hole, with various prizes.
“As the weather turns warmer, we are excited to start thinking about golf,” said Miranda Perez, Morning Pointe Foundation Executive Director. “The Mastering Memory Golf Tournament is not only a fun day to get some sun and play amid some stunning scenery but also to provide funds for scholarships for students with a heart to care for seniors but maybe not the funds to pursue or complete their education.”
The Morning Pointe Foundation is the philanthropic arm of Morning Pointe Senior Living founded by Tennessee-based senior healthcare entrepreneurs Greg A. Vital and J. Franklin Farrow. The 501(c)3 nonprofit public service organization was created in 2014 to provide caregiver support programs, sponsor educational awareness events, and fund clinical scholarships to advance the care of seniors throughout the Southeast.
Sponsorships are available at multiple levels and must be placed by May 1.
“Our golf tournament is always a great time to support our Foundation and the tremendous work they do in making dreams come true for worthy students at our partner schools,” said Morning Pointe Senior Living President Greg A. Vital. “We are thankful for the support of each golfer and sponsor in drawing attention to important senior healthcare issues, and we can’t wait to play on the new course at the Lookout Mountain Club.”
In case of rain, the event will be Aug. 29.

Last year’s tournament raised nearly $80,000 for the Foundation.
Founded in 1997 by Tennessee healthcare entrepreneurs Greg A. Vital and Franklin Farrow, Morning Pointe Senior Living owns and operates 37 assisted living, personal care, and Alzheimer’s memory care communities in five southeastern states, including several in the Chattanooga area.
