Get teed up for a day of golf at the 9th Annual FORE HER Golf Outing on Friday, October 29, 2021 at Baytowne Golf Club in the Sandestin Golf & Beach Resort . The money raised from the event will go directly to local individuals battling breast cancer.
Registration is now open and the cost to play is $175 per golfer or $650 for a team of four, which covers 18 holes of golf on Sandestin’s Baytowne Club, plus all green and cart fees. Golfers will enjoy breakfast and a bloody mary bar before tee-off, followed by various food and beverage items provided at each hole. Mulligans are available to purchase for $10 for 2 or $40 for 8. There are eight mulligan limits per team. Tee off is at 10 a.m.
Fore Her is a 501(c)3 organization that was started in memory of Founder Amy Walsh’s mother and aunt, who both lost their battles with breast cancer. Over the past eight years, Fore Her has raised over $130,000 through their annual Golf Outing. The money raised from the annual event will directly benefit local individuals currently battling breast cancer who are in need of financial assistance. Those in need or to nominate someone in need of financial assistance from Fore Her, please visit www.foreher.org/get-help to submit a request.
“I am humbled to be able to assist local breast cancer patients financially in their time of need in honor of my Mom and Aunt,” said Amy Walsh, founder of Fore Her. “Had it not been for family and friends helping my parents by holding fundraisers to offset medical bills, my parents would have endured a harsh financial struggle.”
The outing will end with a 19th Hole Celebration party where golfers and their loved ones will gather for heavy hors d'oeuvres, drinks, live music, and a silent auction. Awards will also be given for first place, best dressed, and last place. The celebration will take place on the course near the Baytowne Golf Pro-Shop beginning at 3 p.m.
Fore Her will also host a Putt Fore Jewelry event for those who are waiting for their golfers to complete their round. The cost is $50 to participate and includes hors d'oeuvres, cocktails, and access to the extensive silent auction. Participants will try their luck at putting their ball into various holes on the putting green for the chance to win a $500 gift card to McCaskill and Company.
