2018 Civitan Breakthru Golf Benefit



The 25th Annual Civitan Breakthru Golf Benefit will be held July 23rd, 2018 at the Somersett Golf and Country Club. Proceeds raised from this year’s tournament benefit the Civitan International Research Center, our state-of-the-art facility with the world’s best scientists and doctors specialized in intellectual and developmental disabilities. Each year, our golfers and sponsors take pride in the impact they make on the CIRC and the families and people living with intellectual and developmental disabilities. It is a wonderful annual event we hope you will decide to take part in this year.

The Somersett Golf and Country Club is home to some of the best holes in the state of Nevada. The 18-hole par 72 course featuring 7 lakes, 62 white sand bunkers, breathtaking mountain views, and dramatic elevation changes cannot be matched. Just a short 20-minute drive from our convention hotel, the Grand Sierra Resort, Somersett promises to be a course you will remember for a lifetime. Golfers will separate into 4-person teams, vying their way to the first place prize. This is a fun event for people of all skillsets. No prior golf experience is required.

To participate, each golfer must pay a $150 golfer registration fee and raise a minimum of $1,500 in donations. These donations may come from a variety of sources such as individuals, Civitan clubs, and businesses. The $150 golfer registration covers your round of golf, golf cart, practice balls, lunch, scoring party, and transportation between the hotel and golf course. Golf club rental is available on site for an additional fee.

All golfers are encouraged to raise more than just the $1,500 minimum. Each year the Civitan Breakthru consistently raises more than $200,000, with some golfers raising in the tens of thousands of dollars him or herself. Incentives will be offered to those golfers who choose to go above and beyond.
