To celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Shell Point Open Charity Golf Tournament, golfers will have the chance to score a 24-month lease on their choice of a brand new Lexus or Acura from Scanlon Auto Group by hitting a hole-in-one on hole #5 of the club’s newly-renovated championship course.
“We are delighted Scanlon Auto Group is supporting our 10th anniversary tournament in such a special way,” said Timothy Stephenson, executive director of the Legacy Foundation of Shell Point. “It adds an extra element of excitement to a great day,” he added.
Registration is underway for the Nov. 8 tournament, which is presented by the Legacy Foundation to raise funds for the community’s Memory Care Center. Located in the Larsen Pavilion, the center serves senior adults who have memory loss or dementia from Alzheimer’s and other brain diseases.
The Scoggins/Moreland Group of UBS Financial Services, Inc. is the title sponsor for this year’s tournament, which is the first public event where golfers will have the opportunity to play Shell Point’s newly renovated course.
“Players are excited to try out the brand new Platinum Paspalum greens we installed over the summer,” said Gary Keating, the community’s new golf professional. This year, Shell Point invested $625,000 to redesign each hole and completely renovate the course. “We are continuing our commitment to a quality golf experience,” said Keating.
The tournament registration and a light breakfast will begin at 7:15 a.m. The $125 entry fee includes the 18-hole, four-person scramble, golf cart, player gift bag, prize opportunities, and lunch.
Individuals or teams can register by contacting Deborah Henning at the Legacy Foundation at (239) 466-8484.
