A Hole Lotta Fun

For the third consecutive year, Oceanmax is proud to sponsor the 5th USSA Classic, an annual golf tournament and marine industry networking event whose theme this year is “May the Fourth Be with You.”

The US Superyacht Association social, held Friday, May 4, brings together captains and industry leaders for a day on the links at the Jacaranda Golf Club’s East Course in Plantation, Florida, though anyone is welcome to play or just join in the fun. The fun in question includes the return of “Go Out Looking Funny (G.O.L.F.),” with prizes awarded for best team attire.


For just $150 per golfer or $550 for a team of four, players will enjoy a barbecue lunch courtesy of Awlgrip, a cocktail party at the 19th hole, an awards dinner, and full beverage service and snacks on the course. And then there’s the golf! Yachtsign will award prizes to the top three teams, and competitive holes including longest drive and closest to the pin reward skill play while fun interactive activities offer something for everyone. Those not wishing to wield a club can still be part of the festivities with a dinner-only option for $60. Raffles and an auction will also be held.


Last year, the Propspeed logo was splashed across display screens inside the golf carts, inviting players to “take us for a spin.” US sales director James Maitland formed a team of industry professionals that included John Jarvie, vice president of Oversea Yacht Insurance; Andrew Parkinson, executive editor of Yachts International; and Alex Duke, charter manager of Worth Avenue Yachts. James and team grace the cover of the brochure for this year’s event, with lightsabers standing in for golf clubs. He has hinted that this year’s team attire may be Star Wars-themed.

Last year, Oceanmax sponsored golf carts at the tournament and will again this year.


“The USSA annual golf tournament is the best event of its kind all year, with industry professionals and yacht captains coming together for a fun-filled day on the golf course,” James says. “Great sponsors, great people enjoying a bit of time away from the docks. Great networking and great fun are what it’s all about. May the 4th be with you!”


This year, Oceanmax will again sponsor the golf carts and has in past years sponsored the longest drive as well as a hole with tee sign. The event kicks off at 11am on May 4. For more information, contact info@ussuperyacht.com or 800-208-5801.
