SANTA Jamaica's premier and largest amateur golf charity tournament raised $4 million dollars in 2015 and aims to raise $5 million this Christmas season for needy charities.

The annual event will feature the Chip & Putt Registration party tomorrow, the Junior segment on Saturday, and the adult tournament on Sunday.

SANTA (which stands for 'Seeing A Need, Taking Action'), an initiative formed by concerned citizens and businesses, has contributed over $40 million, time, equipment, and materials in order to help over 20 different charities since 2001. The main beneficiaries this year will be the Wortley home, Boys' Town Infant & Primary School, Lalyce Gray Basic School (based in the community), and the Constant Spring Police Station.

This year marks the 16th anniversary of the SANTA golfing event, which is a winning combination of sports, charity, fun, and celebration.

On Saturday, the junior golfers will play 18 holes in a shotgun tournament. The Juniors section will cater to all skill levels and allow a maximum participation of 50 golfers.

On Sunday, the adult section will open to all adult golfers with a Jamaica Golf Association-registered handicap, with tee times as early as 6:30 a.m. Each adult player, up to a maximum of 144 players, will get to play a full round of 18 holes.
