Murray Bros. CaddyShack to host charity pro-am party of PXG Women’s Match Play Championship

Manifest Distillery, Proximo Spirits, St. Francis Winery to co-host as official beverage partner


Murray Bros. CaddyShack at World Golf Village will play host to the Pairings Party for the INK! Charity Pro-am presented by Davidson Realty, the official charity pro-am of October’s PXG Women’s Match Play Championship.

The pairings party will be held at 6 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 24, the evening before the official pro-am tournament, being held at King & Bear Golf Course.

Investing in Kids (INK!) is the event’s charitable beneficiary. A not-for-profit organization, INK! raises money for notably underserved public schools in St. Johns County.

The pro-am will feature 32 teams, each consisting of three amateurs and one of the professional female players participating in the PXGWMPC. In the scramble format, the professional player’s ball is actually “in play” for the team and there is prize money on the line, guaranteeing the amateurs seeing some great playing. Invited to the Pro-am Pairings Party will be all the amateurs participating in the tournament, and all 64 of the professional women golfers participating in the championship, which begins on Oct. 26. Sponsors and other VIPs will also be in attendance, including members of the St. Johns County Commissioners and its committees.

“The pro-am is designed to be a meaningful day for INK! and a fun time for the players, professional and amateur. Who better than the folks at CaddyShack to provide the perfect back drop to what will be an inspiring day on the course the following day?” said Mark D. Berman, who’s MediaShare Consulting Group is producing the PXG Women’s Match Play Championship and the Pro-am.

Added Mac Haskell, owner and CEO of Murray Bros. CaddyShack: “We’re going to celebrate the kickoff of this unique Championship, and the young professional female athletes and guests will certainly be treated to a first-class experience.”

Co-hosting the Pairings Party is Jacksonville company Manifest Distillery, Maestro Dobel Tequila and St Francis Winery, Sonoma. Each will be providing spirits and wine for the event and serve as official beverage companies for the championship.
