The Grand Cypress Golf Clubs New Course and South/East Course will both be open to golfers. Players will enjoy lunch, dinner, an awards ceremony, prize drawings and more.

Participants can also purchase raffle tickets for exciting prizes like a Stay & Play at the Grand Cypress Golf Club, tickets to SeaWorld and a garage makeover from the Container Store.

Their participation helps the Science Center achieve its goal: to inspire science learning for life for the 385,000 guests it sees annually. Funds raised through the Cosmic Golf Challenge support the education programs that encourage children to explore the world around them through science. The live programming and exhibit experiences that result spark childrens curiosity and encourage them to see the impact that science, technology, engineering and math have on their lives and future career opportunities.
