DATE CHANGE   FROM 4/30 – 5/1  TO 8/2 & 8/3    Murray Bros. 20th Annual Charity Golf Tournament – Sold Out      Still sold out … but the CaddyShack is open to the public on 8/3 – it will be crowded but so fun!

The 20th annual Murray Bros. Caddyshack® Charity Golf Tournament returns to the World Golf Hall of Fame in St. Augustine, Florida on august 2 & 3. Thanks to the commitment of Murray Brothers, the annual golf outing has evolved into one of the most talked-about charity golf tournaments in the country.

The annual private fundraiser/golf tournament is a two-day event that incorporates concerts, parties, golf and just plain fun as the Murray’s intend for it to be. Don’t expect a country club sit-down dinner, because this event is like no other. Combine the antics of Bill Murray and his brothers, along with a few celebrity friends carrying autographed guitars, movie scripts, movie posters, sports jerseys, and you get a pretty good idea of what takes place at the annual event.  Website:  https://murraybrosgolf.com/
