Celebrities will be hitting the links in Maine in the summer of 2023, for what should be one heck of a benefit tournament.

After two successful years of hosting the PGA Korn Ferry Tour, Shamrock Sports & Entertainment has announced a celebrity golf tournament to be held starting on June 21. The event will once again be hosted at Falmouth Country Club, just a short drive from Portland.

Brian Corcoran from Shamrock has spoken enthusiastically about the upcoming tournament, which includes an amazing charitable benefit for the Barbara Bush Children's Hosptial at Maine Med.

“We are committed to driving significant charitable, community and economic impact to our region,” said Brian Corcoran, Chief Engagement Officer and Founder of Shamrock Sports & Entertainment and Executive Director of Drive Fore Kids. “We are proud to partner with The Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital and have set a goal to raise $100,000 for them through tournament net proceeds and special events throughout the tournament week.”

Former Red Sox star Derek Lowe turned up to help Shamrock with the latest announcement. That included a list of the next round of celebrities to commit, which included Lowe. Currently, 18 celebs of the 36-player field have been announced.

Here's a quick look at the current field...

Tim Wakefield - Red Sox legend

Derek Lowe - Red Sox Legend

Kevin Millar - Red Sox Legend

Roger Clemens - 7-time Cy Young Winner

Patrick Dempsey - Maine Native & Famous Actor

John Smoltz - Baseball Hall-of-Famer

The total prize purse for the celebrities is $250,00, with the winner bringing home $50,000. That's not a bad chunk of coin for a weekend of work.

This is a very exciting opportunity for golf fans here in Maine. As great as it was having the PGA feeder tour here for a few years, this has the potential of being downright huge. The celebs already announced could really open the door for more big names to join the party.

But we all know what it's truly about, and that's giving back. Kudos to all the players, sponsors, and folks behind the scenes that are putting together such a beautiful event for the Barabra Bush Children's Hospital.

The remaining celebrity field is expected to be announced in the coming weeks. To buy tickets or learn more details about the event, visit the tournament's website.
