Sheriff’s Foundation of Broward County
3rd Annual Sheriff’s Cup Golf Tournament
The Broward Sheriff’s Office is gearing up for the 3rd Annual Sheriff’s Cup Golf Tournament at Weston Hills Country Club on April 28th. The Tournament was introduced by the Broward Sheriff’s Office (BSO) in 2012. Billed as the “3 C’s”; camaraderie, competition & charity, the tournament raises funds for the Sheriff’s Foundation of Broward County (SFBC). Lt. Robert Furman is Chairing the Tournament.
Registration begins at 8:00 a.m., with the shotgun start at 9:30 a.m. Golf includes an on-course breakfast, lunch and a golf gift bag. Some of the awards for the Foundation Course include, 1st, 2nd and 3rd Place Awards, RE/MAX Longest Drive, Closest to the Pin, Straightest Drive, Hole in One, Putting Contest and “Big Break” Glass Break. Only BSO employees will be eligible to play on The Cup course. All other players will play on The Foundation course.
“The “Big Break” Glass Break is quite unusual,” said Lt. Furman. The idea is from the reality golf show “The Big Break”. A pane of glass (2 feet square) is about 3-4 feet off the ground at a distance of about 25 yards. Players are challenged to try and break the glass with two golf shots. If they do, they win a prize. “Not many people can do it.”
Weston Hills is home to two magnificent 18-hole golf courses, created by world-renowned designer, Robert Trent Jones, Jr. The courses have been known to test the skills of even the most serious golfer, while allowing for the occasional player to thoroughly enjoy the pleasures that the game has to offer. The Tour Course was built in 1990 and is 7,069 yards from the championship tees, while the Players Course was built in 1995 and is 7,272 yards from the championship tees. Weston Hills has been the proud host to the PGA Honda Classic, the Dan Marino Celebrity Invitational, the LPGA Chrysler Plymouth Tournament of Champions and continues to host various USGA qualifying events.
Sheriff Scott Israel will be on hand to champion this significant cause and to present awards at the Post Tournament. “This event is important,” said Sheriff Israel. “BSO is the strong and proud family it is today because of the support we receive from the Sheriff’s Foundation.”
“Money raised will benefit not-for-profit community programs focusing on public safety, education, prevention and awareness initiatives,” said the Sheriff’s Foundation Chairman of the Board, Drew Romanovitz. “The mission of the Foundation, which was founded in 1999, is to provide moral and financial support to families of those who lost their lives in the line of duty and to fund programs of the sheriff’s office.” The Foundation also seeks to maintain public safety and improve the quality of life for all citizens in Broward County and support other BSO endeavors.
“The BSO committee, who put this together, are very dedicated and each year they raise the bar on excellence,” said Lt. Rob Furman.
