Golf Tournament 

Join EMC participants on Wednesday, Nov. 6, for the annual EMC golf tournament, which will be played at Hammock Bay Golf and Country Club. With an emphasis on the boundless beauty of the area's natural environment, the golf course at Hammock Bay Golf & Country Club is designed to provide an enjoyable challenge to all golfers, regardless of their level of play, while at the same time provide an opportunity to appreciate Mother Nature in all of her glory. 

Designed by Peter Jacobsen and Jim Hardy, Hammock Bay is a par 72 Championship golf course with 18 individual and distinct holes. Live Oak tree-lined fairways and rolling terrain define the course, while undulating terrain and Gulf of Mexico breezes come together to make Hammock Bay a challenge.

You must be registered for EMC in order to participate in the tournament. Please note proper golf attire is required and denim is not permitted. The golf fee is $199 per person, which includes bus transfer, greens fees, continental breakfast, box lunch and beverages. Golf club rentals are also available for $82 plus tax.
