The Boys & Girls Club of Collier County has opened registration for its 18th Annual FORE-the-Kids Golf Tournament, which features championship golf, a cocktail party, live and silent auctions, awards ceremony, music and more.

FORE-the-Kids begins with a shotgun start on Saturday, Nov. 6 at The Golf Club at Fiddler’s Creek, a 7,157-yard championship course that annually is named among Golfweek’s top 100 residential golf courses in America. The event will follow a “scramble” format that allows golfers to choose the best ball from their foursome’s drive before playing individual shots until players complete the hole.

“For many golfers, FORE-the-Kids is like a welcome back celebration, the first social event of the winter season and the first opportunity to support a worthy charitable cause,” said Megan McCarthy Beauvais, president and CEO of the Boys & Girls Club of Collier County.

Proceeds from FORE-the-Kids support the Boys & Girls Club’s six core program areas: education, career development, character and leadership, health and wellness, the arts, and sports and recreation. The Boys & Girls Club of Collier County serves more than 3,000 children and teens annually through clubs, camps and after-school programs.

Player registration is $500 per golfer and includes 18 holes of world-class golf at Fiddler’s Creek and a ticket to the outdoor after-party, which features an evening of scrumptious food, decadent desserts, an open bar and other festivities.

Non-golfers can purchase after-party tickets for $40 each.

  • Double-Eagle sponsor ($10,000): 4 golfer registration fees, 8 after-party tickets, company name/logo on golf cart banner and premier marketing opportunities.
