Charity Golf Classic

2014 Date to be determined

An all-day event held at Haile Plantation Golf and Country Club, Gainesville, Florida, the tournament is considered by many to be the area’s premier golf event.

The tournament day begins with a sponsor recognition breakfast. Golfers select from a large number of tee gift package options valued at the price to play. They also can warm up their golf swing, enter a putting contest, have a photograph taken and bid on silent auction items. Tee-off time follows a catered lunch. When play is finished, dinner is served, the silent auction closes, and player prizes are awarded. Learn More >
