Just a little about who we are and how we got started
Tournament Treasures was started in 2005 to provide personal service to Tour events and it blossomed into to doing some of the best tour events on all the major tours. The pinnacle was being called upon to do over 40 Leader to Leader gifts for President George W. Bush in 2006-2008. Then in 2013 we were able to provide almost a dozen items into the George W. Bush Library gift shop of our beautiful USA Made leather items.
Tournament Treasures is the place to find unique customized tournament or corporate gifts you won’t find anywhere else. It is also a place where customer service is our primary goal. You can communicate with a real human being all the time here. We want to be your “One Stop” shopping for big or small items and take the hassle out of finding that right gift. Buy singly, or order in bulk. Let us do the work for you!

MEET THE TEAM
FOUNDER AND PRESIDENT
Lisa DePaulo founded Tournament Treasures 14 years ago and has brought her characteristic passion and perseverance into every aspect of this unique business. You can’t understand Tournament Treasures without knowing the foundation upon which it was built.
As a young teen Lisa was encouraged and challenged by her grandfather to pursue her natural talent in golf, and she converted her skill and support into a full scholarship at the University of Texas at Austin (Go, Longhorns!). From there she made her way into the professional circuit in 1998, winning and placing in tournaments across the globe. In 2000 Lisa became a member of the LPGA tour and expanded her repertoire to include membership in the LPGA Teaching and Club Pro elite.
Success on the golf circuit yielded countless relationships and professional opportunities including Club Glove, TRG Group, and E-Z GO Textron.
Lisa founded Tournament Treasures in 2005 to provide unique tournament and corporate gifts that are a cut above what is typically offered in the marketplace. As a parallel to her colorful golf career, Lisa continued to find new opportunities and build special relationships in the business arena. President George W. Bush asked Lisa to create over 40 “leader to leader” gifts for his tournaments and events, and she also worked with the George W. Bush Library foundation to provide distinctive gift items. Tournament Treasures customized yardage books have made their way into Solheim Cup teams, Ryder Cup teams, and Walker Cup teams.
As the trajectory of her business grew upward Lisa was brought back down to earth by the news that her mother was ill. In a matter of days Lisa put her career on hold to care for her mom who faced a terminal colon cancer diagnosis. Again, with passion and unwavering commitment Lisa seized opportunities and forged relationships to create the best possible scenario for her beloved mother Gail. Lisa, Lisa’s mom Gail, and her mom’s two little poodles spent the last few months of her mom’s life together traveling in their expansive new motor home as Gail was able, and cherishing every last minute and experience together. Gail passed in 2015 and neither she nor Lisa had any regrets.
And now Lisa and Tournament Treasures are back stronger than ever with a renewed commitment to provide unparalleled customer service and support.

VP for Sales and Marketing
Patty’s strong work ethic started to emerge at the age of 11 when she started working with horses on the family ranch in Wyoming. She developed a sense of responsibility and mutual respect as a young woman provided with an opportunity to follow her passion training horses and teaching riding. Later, attending Arizona State University she continued working in the equine world at a winter facility in Scottsdale where she eventually became the ranch manager.
Once she earned a Bachelor of Science degree in business management Patty combined her background and education working with equine veterinarians as a pharmaceutical sale representative. She excelled in this field and was recognized for excellence in customer service and sales, and was awarded the President’s Club for Sales with Idexx Labs.
As business responsibilities took her on the road Patty experienced the spark of a new passion and has enjoyed
working on her golf game. Those long hours in the barn and horse arena had been replaced by hours on the driving range and putting green. The golf world has provided new experiences for Patty, including caddying for Lisa on the professional circuit. The team of Lisa and Patty has produced one win and two top 9 finishes, including a trip to the U.S. Senior Women’s Open and an LPGA Senior Championship.
Patty’s life and career have both been built on a foundation of responsibility and relationships. Whether working with horses, riders, veterinarians, or professional golfers, Patty continues to create lasting partnerships with those she encounters. She is an invaluable asset on the Tournament Treasures team.
