Cassy Tully Creates Painting Depicting Fallen Oak Golf Course, Host of 2023 VGA National Championship
Biloxi, MS, September, 2023
The Veteran Golfers Association is hosting their National Championship on September 17-21, 2023, at Fallen Oak Golf Course, exclusive to Beau Rivage Resort and Casino. The VGA has commissioned Cassy Tully, sports and lifestyle artist, to create an 18 X 36” painting depicting the stately clubhouse, its expansive windows framing a spectacular view of the majestic tree that inspired the club’s name.
Cassy’s remarkable painting highlights the course’s soft mist, with fog rising elegantly from the water near the 18th hole. The radiant lights of the clubhouse draw the eye, and the setting is balanced by the textural splendor of the massive oak. Overlooking the scene is a lustrous sky, washed with soft pinks and delicate opal clouds.
“I am pleased to continue supporting the VGA and their dedication to enriching the lives of Veterans and their family members through golf,” Cassy said. “As I painted, I let my brush be inspired by the commitment our Veterans have made to serve our country, creating the colors of the sky especially as a source of hope and solace.”
Fallen Oak, a beautiful Tom Fazio-designed course, is operated by Beau Rivage Casino Resort in Biloxi, Mississippi. Fazio thoughtfully balanced the land’s original contours with natural elements to create a sense of artistry and adrenalin across the 18-hole, par-72 championship layout.
Cassy’s painting captures Fazio’s respect for nature in an ideal blend of light and harmony. This painting will also be reproduced as 12 X 24” Limited Edition Commemorative Prints, signed and numbered. Cassy will attend the Champions Dinner on September 20th, a wonderful opportunity for members and guests to meet her, have prints personalized, and learn more about her championship golf artwork.
“The impact of these events on Veterans and their loved ones is tremendous,” Cassy said. “Being part of the patriotism and ongoing support of the VGA in bringing together Veterans and the wider golf community is inspiring.”
Each Cassy Tully original painting is meticulously created using her signature relief-painting technique. Based on her research of Italian relief sculpting, she blends traditional sculpting techniques with modern acrylic painting methods.
Cassy recently created the commemorative artwork for the Milwaukee Brewers' 50th Anniversary, and her championship golf art includes working with the PGA of America, PGA Reach, Western Golf Association/Evans Scholars Foundation, United States Golf Association, Veteran Golfers Association, and the Arnold Palmer Foundation. She created the Official Artwork for the 43rd Ryder Cup, which took place at Whistling Straits Golf Course.
Cassy’s art is showcased at iconic golf clubs and destinations, including the Union League of Philadelphia and Desert Mountain Club in Scottsdale, AZ. Her art is available in Kohler, WI, at Whistling Straits, Blackwolf Run, The American Club, the Kohler Waters Spa, and Riverbend.
Fourteen Pro Football Hall of Famers signed her commemorative painting honoring the Pro Football Hall of Fame’s “Salute to Greatness” event, benefitting the Beyond Sports Foundation.
Her work also includes a partnership with XXIO, who welcomed her to its annual XXIO Dealer Conference at Kiawah Island Golf Resort in South Carolina and Whistling Straits in Kohler, WI, along with the Father-Son Golf Tournament at Pebble Beach, six-time host of the U.S. Open Championship and the number one public golf course and resort in America.
It is Cassy’s mission to use her talents to give back and inspire others.
