Tournament for Golfers with Disabilities Aims to Raise Awareness

The 5th Annual Florida Open Tournament for Golfers with Disabilities is scheduled to take place on Aug. 28th, 2010 at PGA Village on the PGA Golf Club's Tom Fazio-designed Wanamaker Course. The PGA Golf Club is located at 1916 Perfect Drive, Port St. Lucie, FL. 34986.

This tournament is also for golfers without disabilities. In a conscious effort to be all-inclusive, golfers without disabilities are encouraged to play in the open tournament, along with their friends with disabilities.

All golfers are eligible to compete for the Low Gross Awards. Everyone with a USGA Handicap is eligible to compete for the Low Net Awards. Stroke Survivor Ian Halliwell is the 2009 defending Open Champion and will be there to defend his title.

Raising money is definitely not the goal of the annual golf tournament. The $50 entry fee includes 18 holes of golf on the PGA Golf Club's prestigous Wanamaker Course, Cart Fee, Rangeballs, Prizes and the Awards Banquet.
The goal of the open tournament is to “have fun while raising awareness of accessibility issues concerning golfers with disabilities and/or mobility challenges."

Sposored by Florida Golf Magazine, Titleist, and Bridgeburg Golf and also supported by the NAAG, PGA, USICD, EAGA, NAGA, the Adaptive Golf Foundation of America, and the Adaptive Golf Academy.

Golfers can enter the tournament online or by phone. See www.floridagolfmagazine.com/open or call (863) 227-2751.
