"Conch Scramble" in Florida Keys promises one-of-a-kind event

ISLAMORADA, Fla. — It’s a golf tournament unlike any Tiger Woods has ever competed in. It’s the Conch Scramble, the country’s only Golf on the Water Tournament that takes place on the ocean, and it’s happening in one of the country’s most beautiful locations—the Florida Keys—on September 27 and 28, 2013.

The Conch Scramble, a one-of-a-kind golf experience that has been making waves in the Florida Keys, is inviting people to reserve their spot in what has become one of the area’s most popular events.

Shoving off from Islamorada, each foursome travels by boat from tee to tee, with a designated driver/caddy. Boats are docked and golfers come ashore where they then attempt to land their ball in “floating targets.” Each player gets two shots from each tee venue. The event tests golfers’ skill, precision, and patience.

All of the balls land in the water, but there’s no need to fish them out—the golf balls are biodegradable and turn into fish food after 90 hours.

The weekend includes a kick-off party on September 27, 2013, which has consistently been the party of the year. And after playing nine holes on September 28th, the teams celebrate at The Ocean View lounge with an awards ceremony and plenty of food and fun.

The Conch Scramble is a charity fundraiser with proceeds going to a local non-profit, the Upper Keys Foundation, which provides funding for high school athletes.

The event is the perfect opportunity for golfers from around the country to travel to an idyllic location. The Florida Keys and Key West (http://www.fla-keys.com) are known for their spectacular beaches and endless recreational opportunities such as diving and snorkeling among an array of colorful fish and coral, swimming with the dolphins, fishing in the “Sportfishing Capital of the World,” kayaking, and golfing at the public courses on Marathon and Key West. Islamorada is only 90 minutes from the Miami airport.

General registration for a foursome is $500. Spots in the Conch Scramble are limited and the event sells out quickly, so anyone interested in taking a swing at this event should register as soon as possible by registering at www.conchscramble.com. For more information, contact the Conch Scramble at 305-522-1590 or info@conchscramble.com.

Sponsorship opportunities are available for any business that wants extended exposure through media campaigns and promotional efforts.
