Fort Lauderdale Country Club’s “Golf For A Cause” To Benefit Junior Achievement of South Florida
Fort Lauderdale Country Club
Fort Lauderdale Country Club, the oldest private country club in Broward County, will host “Golf For A Cause” on Friday, March 20, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., to benefit Junior Achievement of South Florida, a nonprofit organization that inspires and prepares the next generation of fiscally responsible community and business leaders. This day of philanthropy celebrates the completion of the Club’s significant North Course renovation project. As part of this charitable initiative, Fort Lauderdale Country Club (415 Country Club Circle in Fort Lauderdale) will be opening its doors to non-members to exclusively enjoy a day on the fairways while making a difference in the lives of local kids. The community is invited to gather with friends and reserve a time to play 18 holes of championship golf on either Fort Lauderdale Country Club’s newly renovated North Course or its lushly landscaped South Course. Last year, Fort Lauderdale Country Club helped to raise nearly $800,000 for various charities in Broward County. 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. 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. Inside, the venue provides a variety of room and dining options, an experienced event staff and a unique 'inside-outside' Plantation room. The golf fee to participate in “Golf For A Cause” is $125 per person with approximately $90 going directly to benefit Junior Achievement. The fee includes access to golf club amenities including a gold cart, practice facilities, dining areas and locker rooms. Golf club rentals are available for an additional fee. Tee time reservations are required and can be made by calling (954) 318-0190.
