The Florida State Beach Volleyball Program will host its second annual golf fundraiser on November 19 at the Southwood Golf Course (3750 Grove Park Drive, Tallahassee) at 9 a.m.
The Seminoles hosted the first annual event last season to raise funds for facilities for their program, which enters its seventh season this spring.
âWe decided to do it again because it was such a success,â said Brooke Niles, FSU beach volleyball coach.
âWe had local businesses supporting him and we sold the 116 seats we had last season. We hope to be able to take an international trip for the volleyball team not only to play volleyball, but also to expand our culture and give back to communities.
The event will offer challenges and competitions for participants on the 18-hole course. And just like last season, the event will feature a beach volleyball court for anyone looking to play on the sand. The event will also feature golf lessons like last year and local restaurants Gordo’s and Bumpa’s are sponsoring the event with food.

âIt’s just a way to promote ourselves in the community as well,â Niles said. âI don’t know how many people still realize that beach volleyball is an NCAA sanctioned sport and that we are in our seventh year.
âPeople support us and support us even more since last year. It helped him to increase our level in the community. My goal when I got to Tallahassee was for everyone in the community to know that we had a beach volleyball team and I think we are getting there.
The price for a single golfer is $ 185 and the price for the foursome is $ 650.
