Blue Martini Fort Lauderdale will host its 11th annual Golf Invitational for charity on Monday, March 23, from 11 a.m. – 6 p.m., at Fort Lauderdale Country Club, the oldest private country club in Broward County. This year’s event will benefit A Prom to Remember, a nonprofit organization whose mission is to provide the ultimate prom experience for teens who have been affected by cancer, at no-cost to their families.
Funds from this tournament will help to create this year’s prom on May 8 at the Ritz-Carlton, Fort Lauderdale. Over 200 teens will experience an unforgettable night with Miami Dolphin players, Miami Heat and Miami Hurricane cheerleaders/dancers along with local celebrities, DJs and more.
“Blue Martini promotes many causes throughout the year and A Prom to Remember is near and dear to us,” said Stephan Day, managing partner of Blue Martini. “We appreciate the continued support of Fort Lauderdale Country Club, our sponsors and the community. We invite golfing enthusiasts to enjoy a relaxing day while contributing to the emotional well-being of South Florida’s teens battling cancer.”
The tournament format consists of registration and lunch at 11 a.m. with a 12:30 p.m. shotgun start for a four-person scramble. A silent auction with luxury items awards ceremony and dinner will be held at 6 p.m. This will be the first charitable tournament to be held on Fort Lauderdale Country Club’s newly renovated North Course.
The North Course project, overseen by Kipp Schulties, principal architect of Kipp Schulties Golf Design (KSGD), underwent an extensive renovation including replacement of the greens and the provision of tees between 4,800 yards and 7,100 yards, making the course more enjoyable for both men and women of all abilities. The upgrades created an elevated level of excitement for members adding to the facility’s 18-Hole, Par 72 South Course which was built in 1926, remodeled twice and is often home to many corporate and non-profit events, annually.
“We are honored to be the venue of choice for Blue Martini’s 11th annual invitational and we’re proud to contribute to the heartfelt mission of helping children with cancer through A Prom to Remember,” said Michael O’Brien, general manager of Fort Lauderdale Country Club. “We’re looking forward to a spectacular day on our newest greens celebrating both the incredible efforts of the staff and supporters of A Prom to Remember.”
In the Broward County area, which has numerous golf courses, Fort Lauderdale Country Club is a select private club that offers 36-holes of manicured championship golf in a forested park-like setting. Visually, the Club is truly a unique oasis as fairways are lined with stately native trees and colorful beds of flowers, as opposed to houses.
The Blue Martini Golf Invitational at Fort Lauderdale Country Club is also sponsored by Cheney Brothers, Daoud’s Fine Jewelry, WSVN and Ultimate Software.
