The Boca Grande Scramble Golf Tournament, scheduled for Monday, Oct. 10, still has team openings, but the October 5 deadline for registration is approaching rapidly.      golf

Last year the tournament was sold out, so the quicker you can register, the better.

Hole sponsorships are still available, and a few team spots are still open.

If you don’t have a team but still want to play, there are opportunities for individual players to be matched up on a team.

This tournament is the major fundraiser for the Boca Grande Chamber Scholarship Fund and The Boca Grande Chamber of Commerce. Golfers will also have the opportunity to play the course at The Gasparilla Inn & Club, one of the most coveted golfing experiences in the country.

The tournament will be followed by an awards party featuring culinary delights from The Inn’s talented chefs, and many great prizes. Registration begins at 11 a.m., with a shotgun start at 12:30 p.m.

Entry is $200 for an individual and $1,000 per team.

There will be a catered awards party at the Gasparilla Inn Beach Club.
