The Hole in One Golf Tournament is the second event in The One Campaign, a fundraiser to benefit Emerald Coast Autism Center (ECAC), a non-profit school for children with autism located in Niceville, Florida.
The concept of The One Campaign stems from the new CDC autism prevalence rate of 1 in 88. With the dramatic increase in the number of people with autism, it is our goal to raise funds and awareness by showing just how many of us know that ONE individual with autism. Perhaps your son, daughter or grandchild is the ONE. The point is, with such a high incidence rate, more and more of us are connected to someone whose life is affected by autism. All funds raised by The One Campaign will support the ECAC Scholarship Fund - a Fund established to assist families of children with autism who otherwise could not afford the services their children so desperately need. The Hole In One is a classic 4-person scramble. Each player tees off on each hole. The best of the tee shots is selected and all players play their second shots from that spot. The best of the second shots is determined, then all play their third shots from that spot, and so on until the ball is holed. First tee time is 9:00 AM. Prizes will be awarded to first, second, and third in one of five divisions-- overall, men, women, mixed, and military.
