Why ThrowBack?

This entire fun-filled weekend has grown into much more than golf! ThrowBack offers some unique ways for golfer and non-golfers to party with a purpose. Here you can support a relevant cause and worthy charity that is doing something major about many of the societal problems that our vulnerable youth face today.

2020 will mark 12 years that the Lawrence Taylor ThrowBack Celebrity Golf Weekend recaptures the golf history of the City of Lauderhill while supporting its premiere junior golf program, Fore Life, Inc. It is here that the PGA’s Jackie Gleason Classic made its debut in 1972 and why we ThrowBack to the 70s.

So, please join us for a “LT” good time and be a part of Fore Life, Inc.’s “Golf Instead of Guns” movement.
