Dear Golfer Friend,

Our first annual “Greg May Caritas Golf Classic” held on October 23, 2015 was a big success. The proceeds from the 2015 tournament alone covered the cost of food for over 2300 families in need. Our 2016 “Greg May Caritas Golf Classic” will be held this year on Friday, October 21, 2016 at Cottonwood Creek Golf Course with hopes of being even better, But in order to do so we will still need your help, support and participation. We have room for 30 teams (4 players per team) and we would love to have a full tournament this year. So get your team together and plan on joining us on Friday, October 21, 2016.  The tournament format this year will be the same as last year, a 4 player per team Florida Scramble, with each team using at least 2 drives and 2 putts of every player during the round. Everyone gets to contribute (either good or bad) to the team results. The starting time will be a 1:00 pm shotgun start with registration and lunch (included in the $100 entry fee per player) beginning at 11:30 am.

Prizes will be awarded for:

Caritas is a United Way agency and has been “providing urgent support to people in need in our community” for over 48 years. In addition to providing food, we also provide clothing, household items, prescription assistance, utility assistance and a Case Management Program trying to help folks become more self-sufficient and less dependent for urgent support.

So help us help others by getting your foursome together, A new 2016 entry form will be coming out closer to tournament time. So save the date for Friday afternoon, October 21 and plan on having some fun with your friends while at the same time supporting a very good cause. Helping those in need will make you feel better even if you don’t hit the ball straight!
