The Conch Scramble is a one of a kind golf experience that people look forward to each year. There are no green's fees, golf carts, or sand traps. Each foursome travels by boat from tee to tee, with a designated driver/caddie. Boats are docked and golfers come ashore. Each player gets two shots at the 'floating targets,” from each tee venue. The golf balls are biodegradable. They turn into fish food after 90 hours. (This event occurs under a permit from FKNMS)After playing nine holes, the teams celebrate at Islamorada Fish Company, with an awards ceremony, food, and fun.
All teams show their spirit by decorating their boats and dressing up in costumes. While it is not a requirement to dress up, a special award is given to the most spirited/best dressed team.
The Conch Scramble is a 501(c)3 organization that makes grants to nonprofit organizations in an effort to enrich the quality of individual, family, and community life. With Over 240 participants in the golf event and hundreds in attendance at the kick off party, this is one of the most successful fundraising events in the Keys providing some of the largest grants to local organizations.
Each year our Board requests applications from organizations that wish to be considered recipients of a grant. The CS Board selects local charities to be the recipients of the money raised. The Board's decision is based upon application materials and organizational need.
