The Largest Golf Dinner in America

2021 OUIMET ANNUAL BANQUET

With the help of a new venue, our vendor partners, our top sponsors, and Massachusetts’ leading Covid-19 safety advancements, we are excited about this unique spot within the 2021 calendar! The return of our Banquet will make an important and timely impact on Scholarships as applications for tuition aid are on the rise. 

We look forward to hosting our guests at the Encore on October 14!  The health and well-being of our attendees remains our top priority and we are applying health and safety standards, based on CDC guidelines, local public health guidance and venue protocols, to support a safe and comfortable Banquet.  We support the state vaccination recommendation and those in attendance should also feel comfortable wearing a mask regardless of their vaccination status.

2021 HONOREE JIM NANTZ

Jim Nantz, the three-time Emmy Award winner and five-time National Sportscaster of the Year, will receive the 2021 Francis Ouimet Award for Lifetime Contributions to Golf! We are thrilled to have Jim as this year’s Banquet Honoree, as his contributions to golf have been immense throughout his nearly forty-year career. Since joining the CBS Television Network in 1985, Jim has served as the lead anchor of CBS’s golf coverage, including the PGA Tour, Masters, and the PGA Championship. He also serves as the lead play-by-play announcer for The NFL on CBS, including the Super Bowl and the lead play-by-play announcer for college basketball, including the NCAA Men’s Final Four.

Among his many accolades, Jim will be inducted into the National Sports Media Association Hall of Fame later this year. Also, he was honored in 2019 with the Arnie Award, which is presented to golfers who give back to the game and reflect the values and generosity of Arnold Palmer. He is a 2018 inductee of the Sports Broadcasting Hall of Fame and received the 2018 Ambassador of Golf Award presented by the PGA TOUR.

Jim’s New York Times bestseller, Always By My Side, which chronicles his father’s 13-year battle with Alzheimer’s, became the inspiration for Jim to team with Houston Methodist Hospital at The Texas Medical Center to create the Nantz National Alzheimer Center (NNAC) in 2011. The NNAC, his key charitable passion, is dedicated to funding innovative diagnostic discoveries for early and accurate detection of Alzheimer’s disease and other dementing illnesses in hopes of finding a cure. Jim’s love for the game of golf and the virtues it represents began at an early age and led him to the University of Houston golf team and has also helped spark several business partnerships along the way. We are honored to welcome Jim Nantz to Boston to share stories from his celebrated career, highlighting all that golf can offer us, our families and our communities!

ABOUT THE EVENT

The Ouimet Banquet is the largest golf dinner in the United States and has become a fixture in the golf community, attracting upwards of 1,500 guests each year! The Banquet is always a special evening and a fantastic opportunity to hear directly from our Banquet Honorees, who represent so much of the history of the game of golf. Guests also hear from the Student Speaker, whose personal story embodies that of so many Ouimet Scholars. This annual fundraising event is a critical factor in our ability to award need-based Ouimet Scholarships, which for the 2021-22 school year will be $2.75 Million.

The 2021 Ouimet Annual Banquet will be held for the first time at the Encore Boston Harbor, a beautiful new venue located just a few miles from downtown Boston. We look forward to hosting nearly 1,600 guests for this special evening, who will hear directly from the legendary Jim Nantz about his amazing broadcasting career and his impact on the game of golf.
