Ocean City, MD – (September 12, 2017): Eagles Landing Golf Course will again play host to the Ocean City Recreation Boosters’ 13th Annual Swing For Youth Golf Open on Saturday, October 28, 2017. All proceeds from the tournament will benefit area youth by subsidizing the youth camps and programs offered by Ocean City Recreation and Parks.
For twenty-five years, the Ocean City Recreation Boosters golf tournaments have helped to raise nearly $400,000 toward recreation program costs for area children. Supporters include individual golfers, as well as national corporate sponsor Coca-Cola and Esskay, as well as a number of generous local partners like, Delmarva Power, General’s Kitchen, Whitman, Requardt & Associates, 84 Lumber, Nemacolin Woodland Resorts and long-time supporter and local businessman, Jerry Radtke.
The charity tournament will be held at Eagles Landing on Saturday, October 28, 2017, beginning at 9:00 a.m. with a breakfast and silent auction, leading up to the 10:00 a.m. shotgun start. The format will be a four-person Florida Scramble. The cost of the event is $125 per person or $500 per team. Each participant will receive a cart and greens fees, a $20 gift card to the Golf Shop, a sleeve of Titleist ProV1 golf balls, entry to all event contests, raffle tickets, and mulligans. Food and beverages, including a pre-event breakfast buffet, soups and dogs on the turn and a post-event barbeque and awards party at the clubhouse, are also offered to every golfer.
The Ocean City Recreation Boosters is an independent non-profit organization made up of individuals and representatives from various community organizations who value recreational opportunities for our youth. OC Recreation Booster volunteers work diligently year-round to raise money to offset the costs of recreation programs for area youth.
