2017 SAFE Golf Tournament
We were originally contracted to hold the golf tournament at the Metrowest Golf Club. Unfortunately, this course was devastated by Hurricane Irma and is closed for the remainder of the season. The management at Metrowest did a phenomenal job helping us find another course to take on our contract with Metrowest.
We are very happy to announce that our tournament will now be held at the Stonegate Golf Club. Please review the updated information below.
Date: Sunday, October 29th, 2017
Registration/Sign-in: 7:15-7:45 AM
Start Time: 8:00 AM - Shotgun Start
Location: Stonegate Golf Club – Kissimmee, Florida
404 Village Drive, Kissimmee, FL 34759
COURSE STATS: The Cypress Course at Stonegate Golf Club at Solivita has been skillfully redesigned by Clifton, Ezell & Clifton, fabricated into a more challenging layout than its predecessor. Fairways are still gently rolling and flanked by undisturbed century-old cypress trees: all the greens have been expanded in size to feature undulations acceptable for much faster roll – some greens have now been bulk-headed for a truly spectacular visual affect. Cart paths now run the length of the course, tee to green, and water comes into play on 13 holes. #16 is a real challenging par 3 over water to a large, bulkheaded green – tough! The Cypress is a unique addition to this terrific golf facility – you won’t be disappointed.
START-TIME & DRESS CODE: We will begin play at 8:00 AM with a shotgun start. The tournament format will be a 4-person team scramble. Stonegate Golf Club is a soft spike golf shoe facility that requires collared shirts for men and Bermuda length shorts. Proper golf attire is required.
PAIRING REQUESTS: We will try to accommodate all pairing requests. Please specify handicaps and ensure that the people you are requesting to play with also have you on their request list. We would like to have a few more of our SAFE ladies play again this year, and golfers of all levels are welcome to come out and have fun.
SPONSORSHIP: The golf committee is asking corporate members to donate give-a-ways in the form of golf balls, towels, tees, cash, etc. to be used as tournament prizes. Contributions will be most appreciated and appropriate credit will be given in the SAFE Symposium Program as well as posted in the exhibit area. Should you wish to make a cash contribution, please make your check payable to SAFE with Golf Tournament Contribution on the memo line, and mail to SAFE, Attention: Golf Tournament Chair. If your company would be interested in sponsoring certain prizes (1st Place, 2nd Place, Long Drive, closest to the pin, etc.), please contact Ebby Bryce for details. If you are interested in providing golf give-a-ways (tees, balls, towels, trophies, etc.) please contact Stacy Stuber in the SAFE Office at (541) 895-3012; e-mail email@example.com or Ebby Bryce, (757) 927-2461, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
RENTAL CLUBS: Rental clubs will be available to those who need them, but only if they are reserved in advance through Ebby Bryce. The rental fee is not included in the price below so if you reserve rental clubs you will need to show up early to pay for your rental clubs at the course club house. Cost to rent clubs this year will be $20 (plus applicable taxes). Those who ask for rental clubs on the day of the tournament may find they are not available - please do not wait!! Also, make sure you specify right or left..
ENTRY FEE: $85.00 INCLUDES:
Included with your entry fee:
Greens fee, cart, prizes, and a Fiesta (buffet) in the club house after the tournament. (And of course the great gift bags assembled with donations from our corporate sponsors!)
In addition to the entry fee: We will again be selling mulligans at the registration table for $5.00 each, a max of four mulligans per player. Please ensure you bring some extra cash to buy mulligans as these may be used to replace any shot you are not proud of, AND the additional funds will be used to improve and increase the awards and prizes.
SIGN-UP/REFUND DEADLINE: The sign-up and refund deadline is Friday, October 13th, 2017 so please sign-up early. We cannot guarantee availability or refunds after this date due to the contractual agreement with the course. Due to past financial losses caused by player/team dropouts and late or non-payment, only players who have registered and paid in full will be placed on teams and participate in the tournament.
The course reserves the right to book the remainder of the course for other players after this date.
