Golf Tournament To Support Foster Parents

May 10, 2015

The Bermuda Foster Parents association will be hosting their annual Charity Golf Tournament over three days from June 5 through June 7, with all proceeds will go towards the Foster Parent Association, including a million dollar hole-in-one shootout.

A spokesperson said, “One scholarship, ‘The Glenda Edwards Continuing Education Scholarship,’ will be awarded to an outstanding foster child that is now ready to begin the next chapter of their lives in university.

“Many times our foster children do not have the financial support or family support to continue their education, this scholarship gives them that opportunity. The Foster Parent Association believes that “The Children Are Our Future” and we hope to continue to change the lives of the children of Bermuda with your continued support.”


“This year’s annual tournament will be hosted at Riddell’s Bay Golf and Country Club. The tournament will begin on Friday, June 5 and the format will be a two ball Stableford tournament with a shotgun start at 1.00pm. On Saturday, June 6 and Sunday, June 7 it will be a shotgun start at 1.00pm played in a captain’s choice format with teams of four.”

The fees for the tournament are $150 per day, $600 for the team. Prizes will be awarded to the top three teams each day.

The tournament will include a million dollar hole-in-one shootout, a hole-in-one shootout for a Kia car, and a hole-in-one shootout for a new motorcycle.

Tickets are available from Riddell’s Bay Golf Course and Family Services.

    Such a great event, especially the fact that this will assist them who are less fortunate than others…And that $1000,000:00, well it isn’t “scratch feed” either :-) Good luck to everyone that partakes.

  2. While the intent is good, the format is not. The $1M is indeed a lot of scratch. It is also a clear breach of the Rules of Amateur Status. Until the event is compliant with the rules of amateur status, participants should be aware that participating may jeopardize their status under the Rules of Amateur Status.
