Sponsors are rapidly joining in support of the 2015 Recording Industry Golf Tournament™ (RIGT), which will be held Monday, June 29, 2015, at MountainGate Country Club, in L.A., with the shotgun start at 12:00 noon. Newly announced sponsors include the Audio Engineering Society (AES), Record Plant and Vintage King, all returning as annual supporters; first-time sponsor Barefoot Sound, who is providing speakers for a hole-in-one prize; and Slate Digital and Hotel Angeleno, also first-time sponsors.

Barefoot Sound will give away a pair of MiniMain12 Monitors (retail price $24,475) to the first person to get a hole-in-one at the Barefoot-sponsored Par 3 hole. The Barefoot Sound MiniMain12 is a no-compromise four-way titan packed with no fewer than seven drive units. Barefoot housed the septet of drivers inside the MM12's sealed enclosures, effortlessly delivering unbelievably wide dynamic range and ultra-fast transient response.

The event is again being organized by seasoned event producer Karen Dunn of KMD Productions and will support the music program at A Place Called Home, a dynamic community center and safe haven in South Central Los Angeles where underserved youth 8-21 years old are empowered to take ownership of the quality and direction of their lives through programs in education, arts, and well-being. Recording veterans Ed Cherney and Al Schmitt will return as Honorary Co-Chairs for the afternoon’s festivities.

Dunn is still accepting participation entries, whether as sponsors, golfers or both. In addition to the 18 holes of pristine golfing, the day will include a $1 million shoot-out opportunity, a hole-in-one Hyundai giveaway, a Bartels’ Harley Davidson motorcycle hole-in-one giveaway, a $10,000 hole-in-one prize, scotch tasting, great food, poker, a “19th hole” and more. The picturesque course, designed by legendary golf course architect Ted Robinson, is centrally located, not far from downtown L.A. The course features beautiful views, a driving range, putting and chipping greens, and much more. Dunn and the industry veteran Rose Mann-Cherney will be driving the “world famous tequila cart” to make sure all of the day’s participants are playing their best.

The list of previously-announced confirmed sponsors includes Absolute Live Productions, Audio-Technica, Bob Hodas Acoustic Analysis, Clyne Media, Guitar Center Professional, Hyundai, Icebox Water, JBL, NAMM, The Recording Studio Insurance Program, Sterling Audio, studioexpresso.com, Transaudiogroup, United Recording Studios and Westlake Recording Studios, with more being added by the week. Hyundai will once again be taking the winning foursome to their Hyundai National Invitational in Vegas.
