When Stanley Campbell, owner of Martin Downs Golf Club, welcomed approximately 80 golfers and 20 plus volunteers to the 2ndAnnual Fore Sistas Golf Tournament, he complimented the board members for going from staging last year’s introductory event to quickly becoming its own 501(c)(3) nonprofit this year.

The golf match was preceded by a Woman’s Health Symposium that featured speakers Dr. De Anne Collier, Dr. Jeaudine Hill, Dr. Juliette Lomax-Homier, Dr. Bebe Pajo. Madetric Woods, NP, Mallory Gillespie, DPT and Julyne Viau, MS[LS1] .

The Martin Downs Country Club in Palm City hosted both of the weekend’s programs.

This year the golf tournament included flights for women, mixed teams and women. The tournament winners were awarded trophies and other gifts.

Fore Sistas is a volunteer service organization of women committed to the expansion and inclusion of talented women in the sport and business of golf through linked friendship, mentorship, financial support, equity and inclusion.

Most of the net proceeds from the tournament will be given as a scholarship to an African American female golfer who aspires to play golf professionally or enter the golf business.
