Throughout the club’s 51 years of service, members have dedicated themselves to giving back to the community. The Annual Golf Tournament, the only community fundraising effort of the club, raised over $34,000 this year through the generosity, support and participation of corporate and individual sponsors. All monies raised by the club support school scholarships and summer program participation for students in Grades 9 to 12 on Grand Bahama Island.
