In our 24-year history in golf event management, we have been honored to partner with a select group of first-class clients who are leaders in their respective industries. We are even more honored to have received those clients’ accolades for delivering results that not only met, but exceeded expectations.
Here is a sampling of those accolades:
Jeff and his team have been able to take ideas and events and execute them to perfection. I never had to worry about how things were going to turn out. It was always done on time, on budget, and better than my highest expectations.
–Gary Michael, Retired Chairman and CEO of Albertsons, Inc.
Working with Jeff was always like working with a partner that you could trust. Jeff is one of the most creative golf marketing guys in the world! Tickets Fore Charity was brilliant! Jeff came up with the idea of the G I Joe’s Foundation and with that we were able to raise nearly two million dollars in just a few years and give it all back to the local community. It was meaningful.
–Norm Daniels, Former President and CEO, G.I. Joe’s
I’ve known Jeff and JSP for fifteen years. I first became acquainted with Jeff when I was President of Albertsons and Jeff and his team were running the Boise event for Albertsons. I found Jeff and his team to be very focused on the customer with an excellent focus on the details. I was so impressed with the quality of work and commitment to service that I invited Jeff and his team to run a charity golf outing in Jacksonville, Florida for me when I became CEO of Winn-Dixie Supermarkets. Again, Jeff and his team did an outstanding job and the charity event evolved into the number one event on the Web.com tour. Jeff and his team are all about people, service and details. In my opinion they are the best in the business and I am proud to have been associated with Jeff professionally and personally.
–Peter Lynch, Former CEO and President, Winn-Dixie and Former President, Albertsons
Jeff Sanders is an amazing guy. This thing doesn’t just happen like an apple falling out of a tree. Most tournaments do everything they can just to break even. What he’s able to do with his technique of being a hands-on guy, and having the charities involved with selling the tickets, and just the whole recipe…It ends up being like the world’s best key lime pie. He’s just got a knack for it. Jeff, we appreciate you in the world of golf.
–Johnny Miller, Former PGA TOUR player, NBC Sports Lead Golf Analyst
In addition to the biggest and best tournament on the Web.com Tour, there is a fabulous pro-am event and an impressive banquet that have both been sold out every year. Last year Johnny Miller was the keynote speaker. I fully endorse this tournament as a great event for Jacksonville. I can tell you that Jeff Sanders runs the event to perfection.
–Billie Nimnicht, Nimnicht Family of Dealerships, Jacksonville, Florida
Once again, you delivered a great Web.com Tour tournament with the Winn-Dixie Jacksonville Open. Congratulations, but given your record in Boise, it really didn’t come as much of a surprise. The charitable amount (generated) was really great, Jeff, and I salute you and your team for working with the Winn-Dixie vendor base to reach that goal … Again, thanks from all of us at the PGA TOUR for a job well-done.
–Tim Finchem, PGA TOUR Commissioner
Jeff Sanders and his entire team at Jeff Sanders Promotions are top-notch professionals who are deeply committed to creating and delivering successful events for their clients. Their knowledge, expertise and passion are evident in every phase of planning and execution, and their attention to detail is second to none. Through our partnership with JSP, Winn-Dixie has been able to consistently raise the bar for our annual Charity Golf Classic, which funds our Winn-Dixie Foundation. Last year’s tournament generated an unprecedented $1.57 million for worthy organizations throughout our operating area. This year, we anticipate another milestone event with the October debut of the Winn-Dixie Jacksonville Open presented by Planters in partnership with the PGA TOUR.
–Peter Lynch, Former Chief Executive Officer and President, Winn-Dixie Stores, Inc.
The Albertsons Boise Open presented by Kraft sets the standard for the Web.com Tour.
–Bill Calfee, President, Web.com Tour
I have been fortunate to work with Jeff Sanders Promotions during the last six years to raise money for numerous meaningful local charities throughout the United States. Jeff and his team have developed the unique formula to connect with and highlight well-deserving local charities to deliver significant donations to them, while delivering industry-leading business sessions, participant hospitality and first class golf tournaments. The focus on perfection, customer care, sponsor support, golf conditions and community engagement and awareness are second to none. The team has learned to anticipate each and every need of the sponsors, the charities, the brands and social mix of business and fellowship. It is no surprise that JSP is the gold standard of the Web.com Tour, always producing key events for local charities and “must attend” events for sponsors and vendor partners.
–Duncan Mac Naughton, Chief Merchandising Officer, Walmart U.S.A.
Great Day. Best event ever at the TPC!
–Fred Seely, Jacksonville Golf Magazine
Congratulations on the success of the inaugural Winn-Dixie Jacksonville Open. It is fitting that the home of the PGA TOUR and the PLAYERS Championship now has a dynamic Web.com Tour event as well. What is especially gratifying is that in this down economy the tournament generated a record $1.6 million for charity. That money will be used to help many in need throughout the Southeast. Creating a successful golf tournament from the ground up is a daunting task. To do it in the shadow of the TOUR’s “fifth major” is especially challenging. However, your team presented a grade-A sporting event that was enjoyed by many thousands of fans. It is one more reason for sports fans to make plans to come to Jacksonville. Again, congratulations on a very successful tournament.
–John Peyton, Mayor, City of Jacksonville
Congratulations on a remarkable vendor event for Winn-Dixie. Everyone I talked to was blown away by the quality of every aspect of the last few days. The event was a tremendous success for the community organizations we will support and was a perfect reflection of where we are taking our Winn-Dixie brand.
–Larry Appel, Senior Vice President-General Counsel, Winn-Dixie Stores, Inc.
I had a great time again this year! The Tee Prizes were spectacular. Food and Drinks were great! Jamie was unbelievable! Seriously this is the best event I attend! Thank you for all you do!
–Pat Adams, Albertsons LLC
Thanks for all you did to make this an outstanding event. Speaking for the Planters brand, this event exceeded our strongest expectations. I congratulate you on a very successful event and look forward to continued partnership.
–David Burns, Area Vice President, Customer Development, East, Kraft Foods
Thank you for your continued great work in Boise. To know that you have brought 13 million to Idaho charities is amazing. We have certainly received our share and are most grateful. You’ve also had an incredible economic impact on our community as well. You are a class outfit! Thanks all you have done for our community!
–Jim Everett, Treasure Valley Family YMCA
Outstanding. I wouldn’t change a thing. Very well done down to every detail… accept our thanks for providing such a wonderful time with all involved.
–Dan Jefferies, McKesson
The stars seemed to align for this year’s event! Beautiful location, beautiful weather, beautiful staff. Top Notch! JSP really outdid themselves this year. I’ve heard nothing but great feedback during and since the event.
–Brad Buchert, Ivie & Associates
You and your folks were a pleasure to work with and we look forward to continuing the partnership!
–Amy McSwain, Vice President, Marketing and Audience Development, The Florida Times-Union
It was great seeing you and your team after a number of years of being absent from the event. What I will tell you, because I have not been at your event for a number of years, but have been at other tournaments, you and your team do an incredible job. First class event all the way, from the time you arrive to departure, not a glitch in the process. The hotel, golf course, and food all outstanding. Most importantly you have done a nice job with the Albertsons group, we have plenty of access to their entire management team and Bob Miller and Bob Butler go out of their way to interact with suppliers and vendors. It was a great couple of days and we plan on seeing you next year.
–Glenn Steele, Coca-Cola
You and your team should be commended for putting on such an outstanding event. The attention to detail and hospitality could not have been better! This was an incredible week for me, one I will never forget. The first part was in my wheelhouse; the Shoot-Out with John Daly, Junior Clinic and the Pro-Am. I just love doing things like this, the fans and sponsors are fantastic and I am grateful to have such an arena to showcase my skills. Next came the icing on the cake! When I teed it up Thursday afternoon I had quite a bit of doubt since this was my debut as a professional. I can only say that making it to the weekend was more than I could have ever hoped for. Thanks so much to the sponsors and committee for extending me that invitation.
Please pass on my sincere appreciation to the volunteers for their tireless effort. We drove up three days in a row before 6:30AM and each time they were there filling the coolers, shuttling us and walking the fairways.
–Jamie Sadlowski, Two-Time RE/MAX World Long Drive Champion
The Media Day was FIRST CLASS all the way, an INCREDIBLE event!
–Matt DeAngelis, Director, Research & Marketing, Comcast Spotlight
You and your people are a Class Act!
–Gary Spurgeon, General Manager, Renda Broadcasting
Awesome job! You (and everyone else at JSP are just amazing.
–Barabara Vanzant, Senior Executive Assistant to Peter Lynch, Winn-Dixie Stores, Inc.
“Thank you” is not enough to express my feelings. What a wonderful experience. You and your group are very special.
–Anne Nimnicht, 2010 Volunteer General Chair, Winn-Dixie Jacksonville Open presented by Planters
Your company does the finest job of any company I have been associated with regarding golf outings.
–Charlie Townsend, Portfolio Development Manager, Sara Lee Food & Beverage
Thanks for putting on a first class event. I go to many of these and this is best of class from the venue to the food to the smoothness of the operation. You guys make it look easy when I know it’s not.
–Lou Martire, Vice President, Trade Development, Energizer
The experience was amazing! Beautiful Accommodations, Incredible Golf Course, Expertly Organized-so much so that I did not have to engage any JSP associates to ask a question, but there were plenty on hand to handle anything that came up. Service was top notch from JSP, Marriot and Grayhawk! I loved the driving exhibition by Jaime Sadlowski. He was terrifically entertaining and a nice addition to the program. Also loved the Master’s Mixer. It was great to be able to casually visit with so many participants. Looking forward to next year’s event already!
–Bob Pontius, Albertsons LLC
As always the Winn-Dixie event was first class. We are excited about continuing our involvement in the future. It is the best event I participate in by a mile!!!
–Anthony Catelli, President & CEO, Catelli Brothers Inc.
Thank you so much for a great week! It was truly a pleasure working with our staff. I can’t wait to return to the best event on TOUR!
–Adam Renfroe, PGA TOUR
Thanks for a great event. I had fun and got a couple of deals closed. How perfect is that? I appreciate all your effort and professionalism. Thanks again to JSP!
–Colin Fraser, SUPERVALU Team Leader, Malt-O-Meal
Please extend my thanks to your entire staff for a most enjoyable day and event. The hard work that you and your crew performed is greatly appreciated. Thank you.
–David Decker, Merrill Lynch
Kudos to you and your team for pulling off the impossible this week! While no one could predict Mother Nature causing havoc on Saturday, you pulled off the incredible task of moving 200 golfers to 2 separate courses, complete with food, signage, beverage stations, lunch, etc. in 24 hours without missing a beat! This is just one more example of why the JSP team is by far the best in the business, continually making these events the tops in the industry! Congratulations on pulling together a great event last minute.
–Jason Krzewinski, National Account Manager, Nestle Waters North America
I wanted to thank each of you for the great work you did at the SUPERVALU event in Chicago this week. I was amazed at your ability to seamlessly pull off the event considering the challenges you faced with Medinah being unplayable due to weather. I am sure that you put in a lot of behind the scenes work while the rest of us were able to enjoy the experience. It was a lot of fun! Thank you so much for your hard work and another great event!
–Mark McKasson, National Account Manager, Energizer Personal Care
Phenomenal – You guys do a GREAT job! You guys are the best in the business at what you do.
–Ken Diehl, Albertsons LLC
The Albertsons Boise Open presented by Kraft has been the premier event on the Web.com Tour for the past 20 years, and its impact in the Boise community from an economic and charitable perspective has been nothing short of spectacular. We look forward to growing this partnership in the years ahead and to positively influencing the lives of the many deserving people this event touches.
–Bill Calfee, President, Web.com Tour
I know that the Ben Hogan Boise Open golf tournament is going to be a great success. A large part of that success is due to your efforts and I thank you.
–Ben Hogan (1912-1997), August 20, 1990
The Albertsons Boise Open presented by Kraft has long been a leader on the Web.com Tour and surpassing $10 million for charity is a phenomenal accomplishment, which should be a tremendous source of pride for the entire Boise community.
–Tim Finchem, PGA TOUR Commissioner
You are the best of what you do, (and you) run the best golf tournament on the Web.com Tour.
–Gary McCord, CBS Sports Golf Analyst
Boise set the gold-standard on the Web.com Tour that many others have tried to copy.
–Jerry Foltz, GOLF CHANNEL Analyst and former Web.com Tour Professional
What a team you are!! I should have known when I walked into that first meeting that you would produce our finest Open. I feel this Open elevated women’s golf to a whole new level and you all were very much responsible for it. The galleries were just what you said you could produce and they were terrific. As Judy, Carol and I walked up the 18th fairway … the crowd was yelling and we were crying. It was a scene we had never seen before. Hopefully it is the start of better things to come, if that is possible. You have a great team, Jeff. I loved working with all of you … A million thanks from the USGA and the Women’s Committee for your hours and hours of work in making the 1997 Open the best ever.
–Joan Birkland, Chairman, USGA Women’s Committee
Once again a terrific event ran flawlessly (from my perspective!) Hats off to all that contributed to another successful event, which is important to all of us as a sponsor. JSP = “Justified Superior Performance” or if you prefer “Just Simply Perfect!” Please extend my appreciation on behalf of Kraft Foods for another job well done!
–Denny Belcastro, former Vice President, Industry Affairs, Kraft Foods
Playing golf in Boise, Idaho was always the highlight of the year for me during my time on the Hogan Tour. It came as close as any event on the schedule to feeling like a PGA TOUR tournament. Congratulations on 20 great years.
–Tom Lehman, PGA TOUR Professional
There is a very clear reason why this tournament (the Albertsons Boise Open presented by Kraft) is a success. It is the endless effort of the JSP Team. I have said it before and I will continue to say it. JSP People Just Plain Get IT!!! You understand all of the touch points while putting on an event. Be it the Boise Open or a one-day charity event, the quality is always there. You should all be proud of the continuous effort this team puts forward.
–Tom Hipwell, Vice President of Sales, Nestle Waters North America
It is clear that you understand that quality is critical to such outings, and we appreciate all the time and attention to detail that it takes to deliver a “10″… these events are like no other! Thanks again for delivering a “Best in Class.”
–Craig Hope, President of Sales, Distant Lands Coffee/Java Trading Company
I would really like to be able to give you a few pointers on how to improve….but I can’t. JSP is absolutely a first class outfit! The associates that represent JSP are some of the BEST I have ever worked with. You folks don’t miss anything as far as I am concerned!
–Wayne Denningham, Albertsons LLC
You all did an absolutely fabulous job last week! I was completely blown away with the entire event … you thought of every single thing and your teams did an amazing job executing on every detail.
–Mary Kellmanson, Group Vice President, Marketing, Winn-Dixie Stores, Inc.
Your leadership has been terrific at these events over the many years we have been involved. Once again, thanks for your “customer service” and please extend my appreciation to the entire JSP staff for another job well done!
–Denny Belcastro, former Vice President, Industry Affairs, Kraft Foods
(The 2008 Albertsons Boise Open) was the first time I had ever won on the Web.com Tour. I had lost in three or four playoffs, and that was always one of my favorite events, one of the best events out there, and to win there was pretty special.
–Chris Tidland, PGA TOUR Professional
The 1997 U.S. Women’s Open was a roaring success, the best I have been involved with since my tenure on the Women’s Committee began in 1984 … we couldn’t have done it without you and your staff … Your staff is outstanding, a very special group of talented people and a credit to you … they were inspiring to work with…”
–Mary Capouch, Vice-Chairman, USGA Women’s Committee
The Hershey Company is proud to support and participate in the Albertsons Boise Open presented by Kraft. This event is a first class golf tournament that supports many charities in Idaho and the Treasure Valley…Giving back to the community is what this tournament is about.
–Tom Joyce, VP Customer and Industry Affairs, The Hershey Company
Please relay our thanks and appreciation to the entire JSP Team for another top-notch event! As you can imagine in my profession, I’ve been affiliated with many functions and events over the years, and the quality of this event is second to none…everything was executed with precision down to the finest detail.
–Cindy Hanauer, Winn-Dixie Stores, Inc.
The Winn Dixie Charity Classic was “First Class” — thanks for allowing me to be a part of it.
–Randy Lamb, Heineken USA
Honestly, I mean you guys are the ritz of golf promotion — first class, no one ever says no to any request even when no is probably the right answer, commitment to get better is obvious. I am not an easy grader but give you an a+. Tee prize and entertainment was perfect. Vendor interaction was easy and natural.
–Justin Dye, Albertsons LLC
Please accept my sincere appreciation for the way you handled every detail during this year’s Winn Dixie Classic. From the rental clubs to the tee prizes, your attention to detail was second to none. We at Sara Lee want to thank you for this effort, by all involved, and look extremely forward to next year’s event.

–Bill Calfee, President, Web.com Tour

Not only did they do an outstanding job, but they were enthusiastic and professional at the same time…Thank you for your vision and for making that vision a reality.
–Kendra B. Graham, Director, Women’s Competitions, USGA
