World’s Largest Golf Outing Held August 3

Jun 26, 2015 02:00AM
The World’s Largest Golf Outing (WLGO) was created in 2011 when Peter Hill, CEO of Billy Casper Golf, said “you know what would be really cool? Having all of our golf courses hold a golf outing on the same day.” He then said, “you know what would be even cooler? Having this event make a difference!” And so WLGO was born by combing two of the company’s passions – playing golf and giving back.

It wasn't just enough to strive to be in the Guinness Book of World Records for the Largest Golf Outing ever, it was about finding a way to make a difference in the lives of others. That’s when Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) was chosen as the event’s charitable partner, for their tireless effort and work to support our injured service men and women who come back from war.

Since 2011 WLGO has raised over $2 million for WWP. Their vision is to grow the World’s Largest Golf Outing into the single largest golf event held on one day which benefits Wounded Warrior Project in all that they do to help our injured service men and women not only survive but most importantly thrive.

Amelia Island’s World’s Largest Golf Outing will be held on August 3 at Fernandina Beach Golf Club. Registration begins at 7:30 a.m., shotgun start at 9 a.m., and awards at 1:30 p.m. For more information or to register visit www.worldslargestgolfouting.com.
