Golf Tournament – July 27

FRIDAY: Golf Tournament | 9:00 AM – 2:00 PM
Separate Registration Required. Join us to play world-class Hammock golf course. $225 per player (includes light breakfast and awards luncheon.)

The Hammock Course
The Hammock Course is partially situated in a mangrove and tropical hardwood hammock and contains many rare and endangered species of plants for players to observe and enjoy.

With fairways meandering through this natural hammock with water vistas on 14 of 18 holes, concentration becomes the key to a good round. This par-71 course is 6,200 yards and offers a magnificent collection of memorable holes.

For more information on golfing at the Ocean Reef Club, please visit the Ocean Reef Golf website.


This festive gathering includes talks with our profession’s leaders and late-night storytelling for the kids. Held in one of the most natural and beautiful settings in the United States, this 2,500-acre private equity resort at Ocean Reef Club in Key Largo (just 45 minutes from Miami) is home to 5-star hotel accommodations. Ocean Reef also boasts a spa and fitness center; three championship golf courses; a Har-Tru tennis facility; numerous restaurants and bars; a private airport; a world-class, 150-slip marina; and a watersports island haven that includes a saltwater lagoon, kiddies’ beach, children’s and adult pools, beach volleyball courts and sailing activities. If you’re looking for an offshore adventure, you can enjoy deep sea and flats fishing as well as diving and snorkeling. The Scholarship Foundation is committed to making the Retreat affordable, and at $195 per night (and kids stay free in their parents’ room), we believe we’ve succeeded!
