Tranquilo Golf Club was pleased to be the host venue for the 2nd annual Diamond Resorts Invitational benefitting Florida Hospital for Children and taking place January 13-15, 2017. The three-day tournament was nationally televised on Golf Channel.
The event brought together up to 27 PGA TOUR Champions players, three LPGA players, and 50 celebrities from the sports and entertainment industry to compete side-by-side for purses totaling USD 1.25 million. PGA TOUR Champions competed for USD 750,000 over the 54-hole tournament, while celebrities played for a USD 500,000 purse. The tournament used a Modified Stableford scoring format, which awards points as opposed to strokes, encouraging players to make the most out of every hole and creating a heightened sense of anticipation for fans.
Proceeds from the event’s live and silent auction directly benefited Florida Hospital for Children, one of the nation’s premier children’s hospitals, setting standards for innovation, quality and comprehensive care. The child-centric healing environment designed to keep kids comfortable is complemented by a staff of world-class doctors, specialists, nurses and healthcare professionals utilizing advanced technologies, therapies and treatments.
Tranquilo Golf Club
Tranquilo Golf Club at Four Seasons Resort Orlando is named to reflect the Spanish revival style of the Resort and pay homage to the Florida landscape, such as the southern live oak trees that are found throughout the course. Originally built in 1992 and designed by Tom Fazio, the golf course was enhanced by Fazio for its October 2014 reopening. Enhancements included creating a completely new hole and renovated bunkers, plus improved visibility and airflow by enhancing the landscape design, in addition to a fully renovated clubhouse. The course is a par 71 and plays to 6,901 yards. Home to abundant wildlife, the course is certified by the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary program for golf by the National Audubon Society.
