Keep Manatee Beautiful to host 18th Annual Golf Tournament


Bradenton, Florida – Keep Manatee Beautiful is getting ready for its largest fundraiser of the year, its golf tournament.  The 18th annual event will be held May 18 at the Tara Golf & Country Club. 

Contests include Low Gross and Runner-Up, Low Net and Runner-Up, Closest to the Pin/Longest Drive Men’s and Women’s, Putting Contest, Dice Roll, Raffle and AMI Rotary Golf Ball Drop to win a 6-day golf vacation for four to St. Andrews, Scotland including tee times at the birthplace of golf and three other courses.   

Entry fees for this four-person best ball scramble include greens fee, cart, range balls, team photo, goody bag, lunch buffet and awards presentation.   

Scott Dennis and Bob Harrigan of WWSB ABC7 will host and announce the closest-to-the-pin golf ball (dropped from a helicopter) on Tara’s driving range to win this all-expenses paid dream golf trip of a lifetime.  Winner does not have to be present to win.  All proceeds will go to charities including but not limited to Special Olympics and Feeding Empty Little Tummies.

The Golf Ball Drop is at 12:30 p.m.  The four-person best-ball scramble will begin with a 1 p.m. shotgun start.  Registration costs vary. 

A hole sponsorship of $600 includes one foursome fee, name on event banner, tee and green signage, greens fee, cart, range balls and goodie bags.  A foursome without sponsor signage costs $320.  Sponsor signage can be purchased for $250 if unable to play.
