Wellington, Fla. - September 18, 2017 - Wellington National Golf Club is pleased to serve as the host venue for a Special Olympics tournament and fundraiser held within the Wellington community! Make sure to keep your calendars clear Monday, December 4, 2017 in order to participate in the 1st Annual Special Olympics Pro-Am Golf Tournament at Wellington National Golf Club, which will benefit Special Olympics Florida-Palm Beach County.

Breakfast will be available from 7:30am - 8:30 am, followed by a 9:30am shotgun start to the tournament. Tournament teams will be comprised of four amateurs and a professional.

In Palm Beach County alone, nearly 1,700 athletes are served by Special Olympics Florida, and more than 400 volunteers from the community already donate their time to the program.
