About the Tournament

In the Early 1990’s, Harry Moore and Michael Frank came up with the idea of a Golf Tournament as a philanthropic project for their Lions Club. Along with the help of two other members and many contractors around the Valley, the tournament became a huge success! Their philosophy was to offer a fun venue and low greens fees. The successful contributions came in the way of Raffles and Hole Sponsorships.  In 2005, when Harry passed away, the name the tournament was changed to “The Harry Moore Memorial Golf Tournament” in his honor. Harry’s daughter, Dawn stepped in to fill her Dad’s shoes. Dawn took charge of all tournament operations and the tournament continues to grow and flourish ever since.

From 2010 until 2019, the tournament was moved from a single Lions Club philanthropic event to an event to benefit one of Harry’s favorite State Lions Philanthropic projects, Camp Tatiyee in Show Low, Arizona.  Over those 9 years, the tournament generated collectively almost $170,000.00 in proceeds for the Special Needs Children who benefited from the Camp’s program and staff.

The tournament was postponed from 2020 to 2021 due to the uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic the world has been impacted by.  Now, as we enter 2021, we have a new and exciting tournament to share.  Moving forward, the tournament will be named the “Harry Moore Memorial Share the Love Golf Tournament”!  Instead of one sole beneficiary of the tournaments proceeds, ALL proceeds will be divided equally by Charitable Organizations selected by each foursome that participates in the tournament.  Harry would be proud of this new direction as he was a very giving person who always put others in front of himself.  What better way to honor that legacy than to help as many Charitable Organizations as possible each year.  In addition, each foursome has a personal connection to the good the tournament is doing for their charity.  Finally, the name “Harry Moore Memorial Golf Tournament” will now become a 501-3C so that all contributions will be tax deductible.

Each year the Harry Moore Memorial Golf tournament hosts approximately 150 Golfers and Volunteers, who collectively raise considerable needed financial aid as a result of the generosity of the participants. We are excited about the new direction our tournament has taken.  We are proud to call the historic Arizona Biltmore Golf and Country Club our home. It is nestled in Central Phoenix at the base of the Camelback Mountains. Our Goal each year is to surpass the previous year’s attendance and contributions received. We hope that you will continue to share our vision to help others less fortunate than ourselves.  With your help we can accomplish some pretty amazing things!
