Freebooters Gear Up for Annual Golf Tournament

Ahoy, mateys! Don your best golf garb and join Ye Westchase Krewe of Freebooters for its Second Annual Golf Tournament!

The event will be held Oct. 6 at the Westchase Golf Club.

The tournament’s four-player scramble format will feature a shotgun start at 1 p.m. The entry fee ($400 per foursome; $100 per individual) includes greens fees, golf cart use, a barbeque lunch, on-course (non-alcoholic) beverages and a swag bag. For $20, players get a super ticket good for one mulligan and entry into the putting, longest drive, and closest-to-the-pin contests. Afterward we’ll meet at Crabby Bills Off The Hook Bar and Grill (a.k.a., the Seafood Exchange) for refreshments and some krewe revelry.

Last year’s inaugural golf outing was a great success. This year’s proceeds will benefit the Parent Teacher Student Association (PTSA) at both Westchase Elementary and Davidsen Middle School in collaboration with Ocean’s Daughter Conservation Alliance, a local non-profit organization dedicating to promoting, protecting, and preserving marine life through research and awareness campaigns.

“We wanted to develop a partnership with the local schools to support what we consider a critical building block for our community—teachers, kids, and education,” said Krewe Captain Eric Holt. “We should all be invested in them!”
