|Verandah hosts Realtor golf tournament
FORT MYERS, Fla. (May 31, 2012) – More than 130 Realtor gathered at Verandah for the Realtor Association of Greater Fort Myers and the Beach golf tournament benefiting three programs – Vacations for Veterans and the association’s Crisis Fund and Housing Foundation.
The four-person teams were divided into four categories – men’s, women’s, mixed and office – in an 18-hole best-ball tournament that included a longest drive and closest-to-the-pin contests. Participants also took part in a silent auction that further benefited the charities.
The team of Chris Black, Brian Thompson, David Farr and Tim Cochran came in first place with a score of 56. Longest drive winner was Brad Larson, while Brad Carpenter achieved closest-to-the pin status.
Verandah, the 1,456-acre master-planned community located along the Orange River in Fort Myers, offers two world-class courses. Old Orange, Verandah’s first 18-hole championship golf course designed by award-winning golf course architect Bob Cupp, was inspired by the spectacular oak trees throughout the site. Whispering Oak, the challenging but beginner-friendly course, was designed by Jack Nicklaus and Jack Nicklaus II.
Verandah offers villa homes and estate, custom and traditional single-family homes in a variety of neighborhoods, including homes available for immediate occupancy. Home and homesite packages are priced from the mid-$200,000s to more than $1 million, and pricing on custom homesites starts in the $50,000s.
