This 18 hole scramble will be taking place on the Casselberry Golf Course meandering through conservation areas, lakes, and historical places of interest while tasting amazing beer crafted from local breweries. And end up at the Clubhouse for more beer tasting !
Meanwhile as some players choose to play golf, for those attendees who do not wish to play golf, the beer festival will be taking place at the Clubhouse. Sample numerous craft beers from local micro-breweries.
We are currently a few months out from the event and are still working the logistics, we are gladly accepting sponsors at this time who will have a slew of benefits to advertise their business during that time.
In 1947, the Casselberry Golf Club opened in Casselberry, Florida. The course originally opened as a nine-hole golf course owned by the founder of the city, Hibbard Casselberry. Paul McClure designed the golf course. It originally had a clubhouse and pool. The pool was located at the intersection of Overbrook Drive and South Lake Triplett Drive.
On April 27, 1952 famed Hollywood starlet Elizabeth Scott visited Casselberry. She went on a tour of the ferneries and the golf course before being entertained at a party by Hibbard Casselberry and other city leaders.
In 1973, it expanded to eighteen holes when Lloyd Clifton added nine new holes and redesigned the original holes. The pool was dismantled and the clubhouse moved to its present day location. Today, par for the course is 69. The course plays to 5, 472 yards. The longest hole is #6, a par-5 that plays 490 yards. The shortest hole is #5, a par-3 that plays 128 yards.
In 2002, Bob Dello Russo of Del Air Conditioning Company purchased the course with several partners. In 2015, the owners decided to close the golf course citing unprofitability and submitted plans to develop the land for residential housing. The owner filed a lawsuit to invalidate deed restrictions on the property that stated it had to remain operating as a golf course or a conservation area until at least 2023.
The City of Casselberry decided to settle the lawsuit with an offer to purchase the golf course for a total purchase price of $2.2 million. Since 2015, the course has operated as a public municipal course owned and operated by the City of Casselberry.
