Habitat for Humanity of the Upper Keys’ annual golf tournament is set for Thursday, April 18 at the Redland Golf & Country Club in Homestead. Shotgun start begins promptly at 10:30 a.m.

Golf enthusiasts and supporters are invited to join this event which promises friendly competition, camaraderie and supporting a worthy cause. 

For a $150 entry fee, the tournament includes a package, including a round of golf, range balls, cart, beverages, lunch, awards ceremony and more.

Participants will have the opportunity to showcase their skills and compete in contests, including the putting contest, closest to the pin and the longest drive for the men and women divisions. 

“We are excited to host our annual golf tournament and grateful for the support of our community,” said Lindsay Fast, Habitat for Humanity of the Upper Keys’ executive director. “This event is not only an excellent opportunity for golf enthusiasts to enjoy a day on the course but also contributes to the organization’s mission of building strength, stability and self-reliance through affordable housing.”

The money generated from the tournament will be directly allocated to the Habitat for Humanity of the Upper Keys’ building fund. This financial support plays a crucial role in facilitating home construction projects, allowing the organization to continue its efforts in providing affordable housing for those in need.  Current projects include an eight-home development in Islamorada and a single-family home in Key Largo. An additional 13 units are in the planning stages with groundbreaking expected later this year. 

Registration for the tournament is open through April 8. Individuals and teams are encouraged to secure their spots early to ensure participation in this premier event. More information about registration, hole sponsorship opportunities, or about Habitat is at or call 305-453-0050.
