The Pre-Invitational Open at White Oak
Thursday, November 5th, 2020
Limited sign-ups available starting Wednesday, September 16th at noon EST.
With the Refuge’s first Nest Invitational Tournament coming to Jacksonville Beach, us locals (@Hwhite, @JCO, & @OffTheDole) would like to invite you to a truly unique golf experience the day before the tournament at one of the region’s hidden gems, the Legacy Course at White Oak Conservation.
The Legacy Course is a nine-hole course designed by Steve Melnyk, tucked in the middle of the conservancy’s 17,000-acre expanse at the Florida-Georgia border. The course has two distinct sets of tees for each hole, effectively making it play like a true 18-holer, and it is always in great shape.
The signature hole boasts a series of three waterfalls. Don’t be short on your approach!
The par five seventh hole requires a precision drive through a narrow chute.
Getting down to brass tacks, it’ll be 27 holes of golf, beers, snacks, a boxed lunch, and excellent camaraderie for $125 (paid at the course).
We think it will be an excellent amuse-bouche before you take your bite out of Jax Beach Golf Club.
Space is limited so we are offering up spots as first come, first served.
Since we are taking over the entire course for the day, the possibilities for games are endless. More to come in that regard.
