Get ready to tee it high and let it fly for a great cause in the 2022 Hoffmann Family of Companies-FRLA Golf Classic at Hammock Bay Golf & Country Club. The annual four-person scramble event is set for a noon shotgun start on Wednesday, October 26, 2022, and is being produced by the Collier Chapter of the Florida Restaurant and Lodging Association and Paradise Coast Sports Complex (PCSC). Funds raised will provide financial support to local hospitality and culinary schools, and provide scholarships to students in their programs.

“We have a role to serve Collier County residents and businesses, and this is a creative opportunity to use the expertise we have within our team to support our local chapter of the FRLA,” said PCSC General Manager Adrian Moses. He added, “We welcome the chance to share how the FRLA’s efforts are critical to local economic success, while also helping hospitality and culinary students through an incredible day of golf on one of Naples’ best courses.”

2022 Hoffmann Family of Companies-FRLA Golf Classic offers various levels of sponsorships including foursomes. Players will enjoy samples of food and beverage from local restaurants and businesses while they play. Golfers will also enjoy the Peter Jacobsen/Jim Hardy-designed Hammock Bay course at the JW Marriott, which recently underwent a $4.8 Million Turfgrass replacement project.

“The Collier Chapter of the Florida Restaurant & Lodging Association is thrilled to work with our member partners at the Paradise Coast Sports Complex for our annual hospitality fundraiser,” said Lois Croft, executive director of FRLA’s southwest Florida division. “Their expertise in organizing and managing golf tournaments will help create one of the best tournaments in Collier County, and allow us to focus on how we can support our future hospitality leaders.”

A post-round raffle and silent auction will offer players the chance to bid on unforgettable items and experience while also providing local establishments the opportunity to highlight their business. Players will also be able to enjoy a discounted stay at the JW Marriott the Tuesday before or that Wednesday night after golf.
