Monday After The Masters still registering teams
Only a couple of spots remain open for foursomes interested in the Monday After The Masters.
Designed to raise funds to support the Captiva Community Panel, the event will take place on April 9 from 3 to 7 p.m. at the South Seas Island Resort. With a shotgun start at 3 p.m., it will offer hole-in-one and closest-to-the-pin contests, along with complimentary food and beverages and live entertainment.
Panel Member Michael Lanigan explained that the group is a volunteer board and there is no taxing authority in place. The event, along with one in March at the Rauschenberg estate, a cruise toward the end of year and a solicitation letter distributed annually, help raise funds to support the panel’s work.
“The letter and the three social events provide funding for the panel to operate,” he said.
Played on a nine-hole course, Monday After The Masters is open to 18 foursomes.
“We do have a few foursomes still available,” Lanigan said.
“Hopefully, this thing gets sold out,” he added.
The panel has organized the fundraiser a couple of years, with the last one called a success.
“It was a great turnout,” Lanigan said. “Somebody did actually get a hole-in-one.”
Each of the holes will feature a closest-to-the-pin contest.
“The winners will compete in a putting contest at the end,” he said.
Lanigan noted that those who sink a hole-in-one will earn a cash prize of $5,000.
Three of the nine holes will also be set up for hole-in-one contests.
“On three holes there’ll be an opportunity to win,” he said.
Those to do so will receive a $5,000 cash prize.
“There’ll be a two-hour cocktail hour,” Lanigan said.
Food and drinks donated by the South Seas Resort will be available in the hospitality tent.
There will also be live music.
The cost is $600 for a foursome of players.
Spectators can attend for free.
This year’s master sponsor is Matter Brothers Furniture.
The hospitality sponsors are Pinnacle Ad Group, Doc Ford’s Rum Bar & Grille, Jensen’s Twin Palm Cottages and Marina, Kay Casperson Spa and Mike Kelly.
Lanigan encouraged people to sign up.
“It’s a fantastic course – every single hole is a view of the water,” he said. “And it supports a community organization that works to enhance the quality of life on Captiva Island.”
