Charities like Viera location, course conditions and amenities for their fundraisers
(VIERA, FL) May 9, 2022 – An estimated one million golf tournaments are held each year in the United States, netting an average $10,000 or more in a single enjoyable day. For many charities and non-profits in sunny Florida, an annual tournament is the fundraising tool of choice. And deciding where to hold the event is key. For a growing number of charities on the Space Coast, Indian River Colony Club (IRCC) has become the go-to spot for tournaments. Centrally located in Viera, the private community for military veterans is designed around an immaculately groomed 18-hole golf course, ideal for scramble start tournament play. Carts are provided by IRCC and the club’s food and beverage facilities are available to tournament golfers, along with the use of the Aqua driving range, putting greens and practice bunkers. On average, the tournament cost is $65 per person, including food. The Indian River Colony Club is located off Murrell Road in Viera, at 1936 Freedom Drive. The patriotic neighborhood was named one of the Top 20 Golf Communities in North America, by Golf Course Home Network. A hole-by-hole description of the course may be found here, along with additional information on tournaments. To learn more, call 321-255-6000.
The gated golf community for veterans hosts around a dozen tournaments per year. Several organizations have a history of golf tournaments at IRCC stretching back more than a decade, including Holy Name of Jesus Catholic Community, Family Promise of Brevard and Brevard Alzheimer’s Foundation. The Brevard Alzheimer’s Foundation also holds an annual “helicopter ball drop,” in which 2,000 pre-sponsored golf balls rain down upon the course. The ball closest to the pin wins a cash prize.
Florida golf course architect, Gordon G. Lewis designed the par-72 course with water on every hole, a magnet for birds and other wildlife –and a challenge for golfers. Asked why groups return year after year to IRCC, on-site PGA professional Joe Imondi doesn’t hesitate.
“It’s pretty simple, really,” said Imondi, Director of Golf and Recreation at IRCC. “The Indian River Colony Club course is private, professionally designed and it’s in awesome condition. Our staff makes sure everything runs smoothly, including the scoring.”
Imondi recommends calling the Pro Shop at Indian River Colony Club to check the availability of tournament dates.
“We can be busy with resident golf groups, so our dates fill up quickly. And I always like to talk to the organizers and make sure our course is a good fit for everyone involved.”
