The 10th Annual Better Ball Invitational Golf Tournament was a smashing success! Clear skies and friendly competition set the stage for a fantastic day of fun, as 82 players took to the Banyan Cay course on May 6 in support of Adopt-A-Family. Thanks to all participants, as well as our 55 amazing sponsors, the event raised over $200,000.
This year, we celebrated the 10th anniversary of hosting our annual golf tournament in better ball format, though Adopt-A-Family’s signature golf tournament is a tradition enjoyed since the early 2000’s.
It was a pleasure to return to Banyan Cay, where moving fairways and diverse landscape challenge players of every level while providing scenic views throughout the course. This year’s all-inclusive tournament included 18 holes of golf in better ball format and use of the driving range. Players enjoyed use of the carts, a forecaddie, cocktails, lunch, and dinner, and were each gifted a $50 to the pro shop.
Congratulations to our 1st place winners, Michael Puder and Warren Rustin!
