One day after The Masters gives out its iconic green jacket, South Seas Island Resort will give out the coveted Captiva Green Jacket during its second annual “Monday After The Masters” Golf Event and Sunset Community Celebration Monday, April 15 at 3 p.m. The resort’s Par 3 golf course is a backdrop for Sanibel and Captiva residents and businesses to celebrate another successful winter season while raising funds for the Captiva Community Panel.
Golfers will have five opportunities to win $10,000 on five different holes with the remaining holes offering hole-in-one prizes and a closest-to-the-pin contest. The closest-to-the-pin winners will then compete in a shoot-out format on the 9th hole.
Money raised will go to fund the Captiva Community Panel’s initiatives, which include reviewing and updating the Captiva Plan portion of the Lee Plan to protect the long-term interests of the island. Even though panel expenses are kept to a minimum and all panel members serve voluntarily, the panel (a tax-exempt nonprofit) relies on private donations to fund its initiatives and help match any funding from public and private grants.
“Since its inception, the panel has secured more than $1 million in grants and funding for the Captiva Drive safety shoulder and to study water quality, strengthen land use and zoning rules and help restore island vegetation after Hurricane Charley,” said panel president Mike Mullins. “We look forward to hosting this memorable event to benefit our beloved Captiva, as well as fostering a strong relationship with Lee County officials on a range of issues affecting the island. ”
The tournament includes a cash bar and barbecue in addition to 10’ x 10’ individual hospitality tents surrounding the ninth hole and spectacular vistas of the Gulf of Mexico. The price for a tournament foursome is $600. To sign-up a foursome or to learn about Master, Hospitality and Tee Box sponsorship opportunities, interested players and businesses can call (239) 472-7565, email captivacommunitypanel@
