Grab your golf buddies and sign up for Brandon Rotary’s 26th Annual Charity Golf Classic. It will be held at Buckhorn Springs Golf and Country Club on Thursday, January 18, 2018.

The entry fee of $125 per person includes lunch and drinks on the course, golf and golf carts, two Mulligans and an awards reception dinner after play.

The format for the Tournament is four-man scramble (gross and net winners). Food and beverages will be donated by local restaurants and vendors.
Registration begins 11:30 a.m. and Shotgun Start at 12:30 p.m.

The Rotary Club is also looking for corporate sponsors. For $1,000, a sponsorship will include a foursome in the tournament, plus Hole sponsorship (signage), recognition in awards presentation and club meetings as well as additional signage at the tournament and awards event.

You can also become a Hole Sponsor for $150, and that includes signage on the golf course (tee box) during the tournament. Signage will display your company name and phone number.

Brandon Rotary thanks its current Corporate Sponsors: The Bank of Tama, Brandon Regional Hospital, Choice HR, Infinity Landscaping/Lawncare, Marchall Business Accounting, M.E. Wilson, Odiorne Insurance Agency, Rath/Harper & Associates, Rivard Buick/GMC and Vantage Benefits Solutions, Inc.

All proceeds from this tournament will go to the Brandon Rotary Club, which was chartered in 1961 and is part of Rotary International (RI).

Steve Moran said, “The Club has been recognized as a major contributor in community service and charitable donations providing needed services to the Brandon area. The Golf Tournament is one of three major annual fundraisers. The other two are its Casino Night and Wild Game Dinner. It averages $65,000 annually from these three events.”

Please register before January 17, 2018. Your check is your registration. Please make it payable to Brandon Rotary Club Charity Fund, P.O. Box 303, Brandon, FL 33509-0303.
