PALM BEACH COUNTY, FL. — Adopt-A-Family of the Palm Beaches will host its Ninth Annual Better Ball Invitational on Friday, May 1, 2020. The tournament will help raise critical funds for families experiencing or at risk of homelessness, and it will take place at the Jack Nicklaus-designed Banyan Cay Resort & Golf in West Palm Beach. With a playing field limited to just 96 golfers, the 1:30 p.m. shotgun start tournament will kick off with a delicious lunch at noon, followed by an exciting shootout, dinner, cocktails, and an awards presentation from 6:30-8:00 p.m.

As in previous years, the tournament will follow a one-stroke-play format, with golfers playing the better ball of the twosome. Registration is $500 per player or $1,000 per two-player team. The reservation includes lunch, use of driving range, 18 holes of golf with carts and a forecaddie, followed by cocktails, dinner, and awards.
