Fourth Annual World’s Largest Golf Outing To Benefit Wounded Warrior Project

 

Staff Report

The Claw at USF in Tampa, managed by Billy Casper Golf (BCG) – the largest owner-operator of golf courses, country clubs and resorts in the U.S. – will host the fourth annual “World’s Largest Golf Outing” on Monday, August 11 to benefit the Wounded Warrior Project (WWP), which is headquartered in Jacksonville. The simultaneous golf outing will be played at more than 120 BCG-managed courses in 28 states and is open to all golfers regardless of ability. A USGA handicap is not required.

Golfer check-in, shotgun start and entry fee – which includes a $10 donation to WWP, round of golf, cart rental, range balls, lunch, awards reception, on-course contests – vary by course. All golfers will be entered into a drawing to win a grand-prize, and prizes can be earned by teams with the highest contribution levels and best scores of the day.

Part of event proceeds and all donations from non-players benefit WWP, the national organization whose mission is to honor and empower Wounded Warriors – some of whom will be playing in the World’s Largest Golf Outing. Teams are encouraged to raise additional funds to support the worthy cause; donations to WWP unrelated to event participation are made at www.worldslargestgolfouting.com.

Since its inception four years ago, the World’s Largest Golf Outing has donated more than $1.1 million to WWP, the largest amount ever via a single-day golf event. BCG forecasts another record-breaking charity donation this year.

“The World’s Largest Golf Outing continues to raise the bar in giving back to our wounded warriors,” said Peter Hill, Chairman and CEO of BCG. “The astounding growth in participation and donations by Billy Casper Golf’s loyal golfers is humbling and shows unwavering support for our country’s heroes.”

“Our warriors were awed by the generosity of golfers,” said Adam Silva, Chief Development Officer of WWP. “We salute the innovative ways of Billy Casper Golf and look forward to this year’s edition of the World’s Largest Golf Outing.”
