Nashville, TN, June 1, 2023 — Players from across the country gathered at Harpeth Hills Golf Course for this year’s 25th Annual AudioMasters Nashville Benefit Golf Tournament, held May 18 and 19. This year’s event, once again hosted by the AES Nashville Section, saw the return of title sponsor DiGiCo for the “Live Day” of play on Thursday, with returning sponsor Audio-Technica serving as title sponsor for “Studio Day” on Friday. From each day’s shotgun start to the 19th hole awards dinner and reception, the course offered an array of opportunities to meet with sponsor brands while enjoying a relaxed day of play on the course, gathering swag and enjoying complimentary food and beverage options, contests, games and camaraderie with peers, pros and audio students alike. Serving as the primary fundraiser for the Nashville Engineer Relief Fund (NERF), this year’s event also paid special tribute to co-founder of NERF and of the AudioMasters tournament, “Dr.” Bil VornDick. Additional highlights included each day’s designated special VIP guest, with veteran live sound pro Chris Taylor making his way around the course on day one and recording engineer, producer and educator Mark Rubel on day two.
“It is so heartening to see the Nashville audio community come together again to support their friends and colleagues in the industry who need a hand in times of need,” states Jim Kaiser, NERF board chair. “With continued support from our sponsors, players and student volunteers each year, the AudioMasters tournament has taken on a life of its own, boasting ongoing success both in terms of fundraising and in fostering relationships within the local audio community. To see everyone, from our VIP guests to the next generation of audio professionals, offering their time and talents each year really says a lot about our Nashville audio community and our friends from far and wide. Cheers to everyone involved for another highly successful event!”
