8th Annual Golf Classic

Josh Scobee Scores Rare Albatross During Ronald McDonald House Charities® of Jacksonville’s Record-Breaking Annual Golf Classic Fundraiser Event!

Monday, October 11 Ronald McDonald House Charities of Jacksonville hosted its Annual Golf Classic fundraiser event presented by Black Knight, Inc. on the world-renowned Stadium Course at TPC Sawgrass and raised over $200,000 to support its mission. Nearly 130 golfers enjoyed a spectacular day of golf under a clear blue sky with perfect weather as the tournament kicked off with a shot gun start and shamble format.

The 8th Annual Golf Classic fundraising event highlights the organization’s mission and the families served each year by Ronald McDonald House and the Ronald McDonald Family Room located at Wolfson Children’s Hospital.

Diane Boyle, Executive Director of Ronald McDonald House Charities of Jacksonville said this of the record-breaking year, “Our organization is truly appreciative of the support of our Presenting Sponsor, Black Knight, Inc. and additional corporate sponsors and supporters who helped to make our 2021 Golf Classic event a huge success. We know that through the continued support of our generous donors, our mission will continue to serve critically ill children for many more years to come.”

During the event, another record was broken- former Jacksonville Jaguars kicker, Josh Scobee scored a rare shot, an “albatross” as it’s called in golf, holing out for a 2 on the par 5 9th which is being shared among numerous golf and sports media outlets.

We also have to give a shout out to an incredible student athlete from Ribault High School, named Tyson Brown for starting off the afternoon with our ceremonious opening shot! What an exciting day we had Monday!
