Get Out on the Links for a Good Cause at the Mayor’s Golf Tournament

Break out your clubs and get ready to play a round for a great cause.  The Annual Mayor Frank C. Ortis Golf Tournament, benefiting the Pembroke Pines Charter School Foundation will be held on Friday, March 19 from 10:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. at Pembroke Lakes Country Club.

The competition promptly gets underway at 10:00 a.m. with player registration starting at 9:00 am. Activities will include a putting contest, a delightful lunch and finally, an 18-hole competition on the rolling greens of the John Stanford designed course. Following the tournament, a high-class dinner buffet, award presentations, live auction and prizes will also take place. 

Pembroke Lakes Golf Club features a John Sanford Design golf course with Paspalum Supreme Grass, awesome E-Z-GO Golf Carts equipped with GPS System, Coquina Waste Areas and a fantastic practice area with a chipping green, practice bunker, grass driving range tees, and an oversized practice putting green.

“It’s that time of year again, and I’d like to invite all golfers to this fantastic event,” said Mayor Ortis.

The driving range and practice tee will also be available for golfers to refine their skills before bringing them to the field of play. In addition to a great fundraiser, the tournament is a fantastic opportunity to meet members of the Pembroke Pines community. 

Proceeds from the tournament and auction benefit The Pembroke Pines Charter School Foundation, a 501c3. The foundation was established in January of 2004 to assist teachers and students through the creation of a one million dollar endowment. These monies provide scholarships for high school graduates, teacher scholarships for advanced degrees, and Employee of the Year bonuses for instructional and non-instructional employees in the Pembroke Pines Charter School System.

The Pembroke Pines Charter School System is the largest Charter School System in Broward County, and the largest municipally run non-profit charter system in the State of Florida. In 1998, Pembroke Pines built and opened two elementary schools and a middle school: Pembroke Pines Charter West Elementary and Middle, and East Elementary campuses.  The Charter High School was then built as part of the City’s Academic Village. Two years later, another elementary and middle school were built – Pembroke Pines Central Charter Elementary and Middle Campus.  And in 2003, the Pembroke Pines Florida State University (FSU) campus opened, the last campus to be built.
