Boothbay Charities Classic
The Boothbay Charities Golf Classic (BCC) is held annually, in late September, in Boothbay Harbor Maine. In attendance each year are many former professional sports greats from the NFL, NHL & MLB, as well as local sports figures, and professional teams, from Maine and the New England region. Held in scenic Boothbay/Boothbay Harbor events are held over a 3 day period which begin (Thurs evening) with a celebrity “meet and greet” evening and culminates (Saturday) with a golf scramble at beautiful Boothbay Harbor Country Club. Friday afternoon of the event showcases a Down East Lobster Bake and silent/live auction (featuring sports memorabilia, destination vacations, gift packages, local artwork, etc.) with all celebrity guests in attendance. Get to know a sports celebrity “up close and personal” as each team of 4 is paired with a celebrity guest for the golf scramble! Sponsorship packages are available.

Enterprise Rent-A-Car Insurance Open
For more than 20 years Enterprise Rent-A-Car has sponsored the “Insurance Open” golf tournament to benefit Special Olympics Maine. Held at Poland Spring CC the 3rd Wednesday of September each year, this scramble format tournament is open to individuals and teams of 4. There are also numerous sponsorship opportunities. In addition to all the contests and amenities associated with this event, those who participate will be welcome to the post event Down East Lobster and Steak Bake, held at Camp Tall Pines (a lakefront camp owned and operated by Special Olympics Maine, located on Lower Range Pond, 1 mile from the golf course). Local volunteers will cook up and serve this “Down East Feast”, which will include the event raffles, auction & awards.
"Tee" it Up with A Special Olympics Maine Athlete Golf Scramble
The “Tee’it Up with a Special Olympics Maine Athlete” golf scramble, is a unique event held annually the first Monday of August, at Martindale Country Club in Auburn. This is a “crowd favorite” as it gives participants a chance to meet, and get to know, our athletes. Each scramble team of 4 is assigned a 5th team member which is a Special Olympics Maine Golf Athlete. Complete with all the amenities other scrambles have, you also get a chance to play this game you love with one of our athletes, who loves the game as much as you do! More than 25 of our athletes participated in the 2015 event. This has become a real hit, with many teams retuning year after year, requesting “their” S O athlete from past years! Come join the fun.
