Registration open for Kevin Williamson Classic Golf Tournament

By MEGHAN BRADBURY - | Feb 17, 2021


A golf tournament is being held in honor of a local man who was very involved in his community next Saturday at Majestic Golf Course by the East Lee County Chamber of Commerce.

The Kevin Williamson Classic Golf Tournament will be held Saturday, Feb. 27, with sign-in taking place at 7 a.m. and tee time kicking off at 8 a.m. Registration is $125 per person and can be done by emailing Doris@lehighacreschamber.org. Majestic Golf Course is at 350 Homestead Rd. S.

Nancy Williamson, secretary of the East Lee County Chamber of Commerce, said her husband, Kevin, was a Realtor who was very involved with the Realtors association and a pretty well-known guy around town. She said he passed away in December from a brain tumor.

“Before he started his treatment, the Lord said ‘I’m not going to make him do it and took him home,'” Nancy said. “We decided to name the fundraiser after him.”

Kevin was elected to serve as the chairman of the board of the local Realtors association and he was part of the Realty World C. Bagans First in Lehigh Acres.

The golf tournament is a four-man scramble with men’s and women’s first and second place, longest drive and closest to the pin awards. There will also be a 50/50 raffle and a silent auction.

Breakfast will be sponsored by Realty World C. Bagans First and lunch is sponsored by Royal Palm Coast Realtor Association.

“Everything should be done by 1 p.m.,” she said of lunch and the awards.

Hole sponsorships are still available for $100. Those interested can email Doris@lehighacreschamber.org.

“I need five hole sponsors,” Nancy said.

The proceeds from the tournament will benefit the East Lee County Chamber of Commerce.

“We are a growing chamber. Even through this pandemic we have managed to spread out and grow. We are proud of that,” she said.
