Candler Hills Golf Club will host the 18th annual Ocala Open Professional Tournament on March 20 – 22, 2024 with a charity Pro-Am on March 19, 2024.
The Ocala Open has become a tradition at Candler Hills Golf Club and has benefitted the community by partnering with local businesses and residents to enjoy a great game of golf while raising funds to donate to local charities.
To date, the tournament has raised $993,064 and has benefitted Hospice of Marion County, Inc. and Interfaith Emergency Services. Hospice of Marion County, Inc. is a not-for-profit organization whose mission is to provide exemplary compassionate comfort for the terminally ill and support services for the families/caregivers. Interfaith Emergency Services is also a not-for-profit organization that brings together people of all faiths providing basic necessities such as food, shelter, clothing, and emergency financial assistance to those in need in our community.
The 2023 Ocala Open was a great success as the two charities split $100,000 that was raised with generous sponsorships by local businesses who embraced and supported the event.
