"We invite players to enjoy a top-notch area golf course while also supporting our mission of helping more than 24,000 individuals annually in Southwest Florida improve their lives," said John Nadeau, Goodwill Industries of Southwest Florida CEO/President.
Players will tee off at 8:30 a.m. on the Whispering Oak course, one of two Jack Nicklaus-designed courses at the venue. Lunch and prizes will follow in the club restaurant. The top prize will be a $7,500 Golf Vacation to play at Pebble Beach, including airfare, hotel and golf accommodations — to win, a player must score a Hole-in-One on the designated hole during the tournament.
Dozens of other prizes will be available through course contests and raffles. Cost is $125 per player or $500 per foursome. A limited number of sponsorships are available, such as Continental breakfast ($750) or hole sponsors ($250).
