Ed Portman of The Palm Beach Rangers announced The Village Golf Club in Royal Palm Beach was selected as the venue for the inaugural Golf Tournament fundraiser for The Palm Beach Rangers travel baseball team.
The tournament will be a scramble format, shotgun start on Sunday March 2nd at 1pm. Registration and warm up at 11:30am.
“Even in a weak economy golfers come out of the woods to support a good cause”, said Dan Pesant , teaching pro / co-owner of The Village Golf Club. “We host many tournaments throughout the year and when there is a charity involved or fundraising for community kid’s sports programs, even the rustiest of club come out of storage. This event could not have come at a better time as far as course conditions are concerned. Head greens keeper Justin Hawkins and his crew have brought the course to the best condition it has ever been in. Good conditions and good cause usually equal great turnout. Many of them will be hitting a lot more balls then the Baseball Team the come out to support.”
The great Hank Arron once was quoted saying something quite similar. “It took me seventeen years to get three thousand hits in baseball. I did it in one afternoon on the golf course.” Hank Aaron
The Palm Beach Rangers is a U-12 youth travel baseball team and fundraising is the only way many of these kids can get to travel and play. It is really great when folks that have golfed in months or sometime years come out to support children’s sports programs. Everyone has a great time and the kids get the funds they need to travel and play.
