Rotary golf tourney has spots open

By CHUCK BALLARO - | Apr 15, 2021


The North Fort Myers Rotary, after a year layoff due to COVID, will hold its annual Rotary Masters Charity Golf Tournament on Saturday, April 17, at the Magnolia Landing Golf Club, and the Rotary is still looking for people to participate as a sponsor or player.

Proceeds from the tournament will go to support the numerous charitable projects the Rotary does year round, including Valerie’s House.

The four-person scramble will have a 1 p.m. shotgun start. Donation is $75 per player, which includes green fee, cart, range balls and the postgame lunch in the clubhouse. A full field is expected.

“We have a lot of new teams this year. There will be a lot of champions from other golf tournaments playing in this one,” said Wendy Murray of the Rotary.

The event also will feature a $5,000 putting contest. For $5 you get two putts to hole out or closest to the pin. The winner will get 50 percent of entry money from the putting contest and a chance for one putt at 60 feet for $5,000.

Participants must be 18 or older and be playing in the tournament.

There also will be 50/50s on all the Par 3s, a hole-in-one contest, raffles with great prizes, a silent auction, door prizes and more. Mulligans and yardsticks will also be for sale.

They still are looking for hole sponsors and foursomes, but things are in excellent shape as people are ready to get out and about again.

“Sponsorships are going pretty good. We’re seeing that people are ready to get back to normal. Vaccines are more readily available, so I think we’re going to do just fine with the tournament,” said Rotary member John Gardner. “Magnolia Landing always does a good job hosting events.”
