“Almost Famous” Sporting Event Coming to Coral Bay

So we’ve all heard of the Masters Tournament and PGA Tour, but did you know that one of the world’s best golf tournaments happens right in Coral Bay?

Ok, so this “almost famous” tournament isn’t quite at the level of the Masters or PGA Tour … yet … but it is a very cool event that’s happening to support an even better cause. It’s called the Coral Bay Open, and it’s happening this Saturday.

The “almost famous” Coral Bay (mini golf) Open benefits St. John nonprofits, causes and people. This year, proceeds from the event will support St. John Rescue, an all volunteer organization dedicated to saving lives and building a better community through participation, education, and community spirit.

Now this isn’t your typical golf tournament. Let’s just say it’s wacky, fun and uniquely Coral Bay.

The event starts at 11 a.m. at Skinny Legs with a shotgun start. You can register individually for $25 or sign up a foursome for $100 at Connections or Skinny Legs. There’ll even be a prize for the best dressed foursome, so get cracking on a great costume!

The event will also have a raffle. Prizes include a two-night stay at Grande Bay, as well as a two-night stay at Sirenusa. We’re also told that there will be a pretty sweet after party featuring David T. Carter.

Have any questions? Call (340) 643-5313 for more info.

According to its Facebook page, St. John Rescue responds to nearly 150 calls per year and is chartered to provide emergency rescue and medical support services to St John’s EMS, police, fire, National Park, VITEMA and DPR. It also assists with the DHS/ United States Coast Guard and FEMA.
