You will see on the various mediums that list this winter season's Sunshine activities, there is a spot slotted for the Guys & Dolls Golf Tournament & Banquet on Feb 19 & 20, 2022. But it also says "Need Chairpersons".
These dates were requested last March by me, only in order for this event to get on the calendar. We haven't had it for the last two seasons, due to Covid-19. So, I know there are residents who really want to see it started up again.
Although that seems like a long time off, if this event is going to take place this season, now is the time for residents to step and volunteer to chair it. If you have never chaired such an event there are several residents who have chaired this and other similar golf events. I'm assuming they would be more than happy to get you going and answer any questions you may have. I believe a committee of about six to eight people can put this on.
If you are interested, please contact me and I will assist you with getting the paperwork going for this.
I do not play golf, but I know the people who have played in this tournament in the past have enjoyed it immensely.
Thanks for your consideration.

I am happy to announce Good news and Good news.
The Good Neighbor Golf Tournament, and its name, is back. The event is scheduled for March 3, 4 & 5, 2022, which is a Thursday through Saturday.
The GNGT committee has decided to forge ahead with this event with a few modifications because of Covid.
It will be an outside event. We will be inviting our Neighbors to participate as in the past. We have plans to award daily prizes to both the morning players and the afternoon players. We will not, however, be having an awards dinner on Saturday evening.
Sunshine Women's Golf League has again agreed to prepare hot dogs / brats / sloppy joe sandwiches for $5 on Thursday and Friday.
It will be a Bring Your Own (alcoholic) Beverages (BYOB) for the tournament. Water and soda will be provided.
We will have registration for Sunshine players in the library beginning Feb 21st. Registration will start for outside players on Feb 24th. We are giving Sunshine the first opportunity to get in the game. So please register early.
The registration fee is $40 a player. This gets you three (3) days of competitive golf, along with cash and golf prizes being awarded. We will pay out closest to the pin each day for the morning and afternoon sessions. Saturday we will determine the overall tournament award winners, again for the morning and afternoon groups.
The final day to register for our GNGT is Noon on February 28, 2022 in the Library.

We will be having a golf tournament on March 3, 4, and 5, 2022, Thursday through Saturday. However, the committee decided we would call it the Sunshine Country Club Estates Golf Tournament, rather than the Good Neighbor Golf Tournament, for this year only. The name change is because of input from the organizing committee and others. We will be limiting participation to only residents/renters of Sunshine and/or their immediate family. Additionally, the golfers must be 55 years of age or older. We plan to host everything outside, so we will not have an awards dinner on Saturday. We hope to award prizes every day by drawings beginning the first day for the morning and afternoon participants. We moved the dates back a month in hopes of having great weather.
We will be reducing the entry fee as well. Stay tuned for more updates and details.
