If you enjoy a round or two, you won’t want to miss this year’s ISPA Golf Tournament, noon to 5 p.m. Wednesday, March 8, on the one-of-a-kind Vinoy Renaissance Golf Club course designed by golfer and nature lover Ron Garl, and support Colon Cancer Alliance.
Offering ideal year-round playing conditions, the 18-hole, par-71 course is a certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary hosting a wide variety of wildlife and greens surrounded by some 900 palm trees of more than a dozen varieties from around the world.
Along with the pines and live oaks, you may find yourself lost in the jungle, or beached on one of 63 strategically placed bunkers.
Besides enjoying the Florida sunshine, the event will help champion a worthy cause. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Colon Cancer Alliance.
The cost of the golf tournament is $165 per person, which includes a boxed lunch, refreshments, and transportation to and from the course.
Tournament awards will be presented at the Welcome Reception Wednesday evening.
To register for the tournament, check ISPAIndustryConference.com. To learn more about the course, visit The Vinoy Golf Club web page.
In addition, a silent auction also benefiting the alliance will feature: sports memorabilia, including boxing gloves signed by Sugar Ray Leonard and footballs autographed by a Baltimore Ravens football player.
According to the Colon Cancer Alliance, colon cancer is the third most commonly diagnosed cancer and the second leading cause of cancer death in the United States. The American Cancer Society estimates that this year 136,830 people will be diagnosed and 50,310 will die from the disease.
