Bass & Birdies Classic
Presented by Florida Sportsman

7:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.   Shingle Creek Golf Club

It’s time to score some birdies and catch some bass. For real.

The golf is a Scramble–Best Ball format, meaning teams of four players hit each shot and the best shot is selected.

On four designated holes, one team member will fish in the bass-hungry water hazard  while the other three play the scramble.

The heavy emphasis on fun will include such contests as “Closest to the Pin” “Longest Drive” “Casting Contests,” “Beat the Pro” and more.

All proceeds benefit the industry’s angler advocacy program, Keep America Fishing.
