Held the first Saturday in August, the Swingin’ for St. Martin’s Annual Golf Benefit attracts golfers of all ages and skill levels to play a Florida Scramble at the Garrett Country Club. This fun event is enjoyed by serious golfers as well as recreational gofers looking to beat their personal best score. Snacks, unique libations, and lunch are served. Several activities while on the course are offered to the players.
In addition to the golf tournament, the benefit raises funds by offering a wide array of items and gift certificates for our popular bucket raffle, a 50-50 raffle and "The Great Golf Ball Drop." Using a lift truck to elevate a basket of golf balls the balls are dropped and the golf ball closest to the pin is deemed the winner.
This event is made possible by event, lunch, cart and hole sponsors, in addition to the in-kind donations for our bucket raffles. Our goal is to offer a fundraising event that allow our supporters to be proud of their association with St. Martin’s Healthcare. With the help of staff and volunteers we strive to make our golf outing, "the best golf benefit each year" as commented by past golfers.
