Fore Sistas Golf Tournament Set for March 3-4
Last year’s inaugural Fore Sistas of Fairview Golf Club, Inc. Women’s Golf Tournament offered a weekend of great golf, important symposiums and outstanding food and entertainment – is it any wonder that the popular event is coming back for a return engagement the weekend of March 3-4?
While it is a women’s golfing event, this year, mixed foursomes (maximum of two men) and men’s foursomes are invited to participate.
The two-day event will kick off at 1 p.m. on Friday, March 3 with a Golf Clinic, followed by a Women’s Health Symposium with a panel of dynamic health professionals, and Welcome Reception featuring hors d’oeuvres, spirit tasting and a deejay.
On Saturday, March 4 access to the practice facility starts at 7 a.m. (subject to availability), Group Photos and Breakfast are scheduled for 8 a.m., followed by the 9 a.m. start of the Shotgun-style Tournament and a Luncheon and Awards Ceremony at 2 p.m.
Cost for the entire weekend is $175 per person with a non-golfing option that includes everything but play for $60 per person.
Fairview Golf Club, Inc, located in West Palm Beach, was established 56 years ago to provide a facility at which African Americans could play the sport, and is currently led by Martha Clark. Fairview Golf Club, Inc., was gracious in allowing Fore Sistas to affiliate with it.
Fore Sistas of Fairview Golf Club, Inc. is now a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit volunteer service organization of women committed to the expansion and inclusion of talented women in the sport and business of golf through linked friendship, financial support, equity and inclusion.
Organizations supporting African American female youth and collegiate golfers aspiring to reach the next level of play will be recipients of the 75-percent of the net proceeds raised at the tournament.
Members of the event committee are Phyllis M. Gillespie, Martha Clark, Stanley Campbell, Jr., G. Sean Schley, Earnie Ellison, Jean Laws Scott,
Claire Nash, Synthia Snow, Tishunda Tullis, Michelle Jerger, Lynn Solomon, Debra Williams and Raelyn Holmes
