From golf clubs to fishing rods…. professional golfers Bill Haas and his father Jay will enjoying both kinds of sticks at DeBordieu! The DeBordieu Charity Pro-Am has added a Fishing Tournament to the event.
Teams are composed of a guide and two fishermen targeting redfish, sea trout and flounder. Release of the catch is encouraged, but a nice seafood supper might emerge from the tournament. Teams are encouraged to have a good time. There will be awards, but mostly just bragging rights.Englis Glover will capture the action on video for his show “Reelin Up the Coast” on WMMB and WPDE, Sundays at 9 a.m. “We could use a few more teams,” reported Shawn Roper, DeBordieu Head Golf Professional. “What makes it attractive is that the entry fee of $500 per team goes entirely to the SC Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and is tax deductible. Teams also will enjoy an awards ceremony with hors d’oeuvres and an open bar that evening, as well as admission the following night to the Pro-Am Gala Banquet and Auction.”Last year the DeBordieu Charity Pro-Am Tournament raised $135,000 for Cystic Fibrosis, aided by a donation of $50,000 from Bill Haas and his donation through participating in the Presidents Cup. Pro-Am teams have been sold out since the event was announced six months ago. If you are interested in participating in the fishing tournament or sponsoring an event or a hole, call Shawn Roper at 843-527-6000.
