Boca Lago Golf & Country Club Invites Community to  
“Get Out & Golf” and PlayARound ä To Benefit Spirit of Giving’s Annual Holiday Gift Drive

 

Each Round Played Helps Bring Season’s Magic to More Than 5,000 Children
Throughout Palm Beach County

 

BOCA RATON, FL (November 12, 2020) -- Through its PlayARoundä "socially distanced” fundraising initiative, Boca Lago Golf & Country Club (BLG&CC) is partnering with Spirit of Giving (SOG) to support the nonprofit’s Annual Holiday Gift Drive that will bring joy to more than 5,000 children in Palm Beach County this season. Because Covid restrictions have upended so many of Spirit of Giving’s traditional gift drive fundraising events and opportunities, BLG&CC is opening its fairways to “drive” funds “fore” this vital mission when the need this year is so much greater than ever before.

"We are proud to partner with Spirit of Giving this year when so many children and their families have been economically and socially challenged by Covid-19," said BLG&CC Managing Director of Membership and Golf Operations John Stampfl?. "Most have missed out on personal celebrations, spending time with friends, and school clubs and sports, and we at Boca Lago don't want them to now have to miss out on the magic of the holidays that infuses joy and hope."

The More Rounds Played, The More Children’s Holiday Gift Wishes Are Granted

Throughout November until December 15, SOG gift drive supporters will become a member-for-a-day at the private golf and country club, giving them access to play nine-hole rounds of golf on one or more on BLG&CC’s three redesigned award-winning nine-hole courses. Following an $8 million investment, the courses were recognized by the Golf Course Superintendents Association of America’s (GCSAA) as the Best New Golf Course Design (2018).

For $75 + sales tax (including one Club Car Cart per golfer), SOG supporters will enjoy one round of fresh-air play amidst 225 acres of vibrant fairways and greens, shimmering lakes, lush natural preserves and playful wildlife and SOG will receive a $50 donation in the golfer’s name that will fulfill Holiday Gift Wishes for two children this season. When supporters opt to play additional nine-hole rounds at $75+ sales tax each, SOG will receive a $50 donation per round to underwrite two additional gifts.

Supporters are encouraged to come early to warm up at BLG&CC’s Golf Academy-level practice facility that features an expansive “full swing” driving range accommodating a field of 20 golfers, three putting greens, a dedicated short-game area and two practice holes that can be played in multiple ways. Food and beverages at the Club’s poolside watering hole (serving up lunch, snacks and happy hour cocktails and bites) and Pro Shop attire are available for purchase.
