For the third consecutive year, Els for Autism will host its golf challenge at 21 golf courses in the United States and Canada. The super-regional events will take place from April through September.

Teams will be playing for their “Honorary Captain”, a child on the autism spectrum who they play and fundraise in honor of. A team’s fundraising ability is valued as much as their performance on the course. Teams will compete for a selection of first class Regional prizes and all groups raising at least $13,000 will enjoy a two-day extravaganza of golf and entertainment in Las Vegas hosted by Ernie and his wife Liezel in October.

The trip will include entrance into the Grand Finale golf tournament for two players, a pro clinic with PGA Tour professionals, an invitation to the Welcome Party and awards ceremony, two nights accommodation at Caesars Palace, a luxury gift bag for each player, and the opportunity to win major prizes including trips to Africa, South America, and the UK.

Since its first event in 2011, the Els for Autism Golf Challenge has raised over $4 million for autism thanks to 3,300 round of golf and over 13,000 donors pledging funds. The challenge has also helped raise awareness of a disorder that now affects 1 in 88 children and 1 in 54 boys.
 
Ernie Els (Bears Club) started the Els for Autism Foundation in 2009. His 10-year old son Ben has autism and the foundation was created to raise awareness and help others that suffer from it.

There are two opportunities for local residents to participate in one of the regional events.
 
The first opportunity is on April 2, which is also World Autism Awareness Day, at Floridian Country Club in Palm City. Registration for the event is $400 per player and will include the round of golf, range balls, a gift bag, continental breakfast, beverage cart with snacks and beverages, a lunch buffet, and an awards ceremony after the event.

The regional events will wrap up on September 30th at Trump National in Jupiter. Registration for this event is $500 and will include also include the round of golf, range balls, a gift bag, continental breakfast, beverage cart with snacks and beverages, a lunch buffet, and an awards ceremony after the event.
