Join us for the 2nd Annual It’s a Zoo Out There! golf tournament to benefit the Buttonwood Park Zoological Society on Monday, June 26, 2017 at the Bay Club at Mattapoisett. This unique venue is a silver certified Audubon Sanctuary with championship golf.  The event includes 18 holes of golf, lunch and a post-game reception. Golfers will have the opportunity to pick their golfing format (team bramble or team best ball).

During the post-game reception golfers and guests will enjoy a dinner in the Golf House at the Bay Club.  This intimate setting is a perfect backdrop for enjoying Chef Jim Mercer’s wonderful menus.  During the reception guests will be delighted with an engaging live and silent auction as well as an awards ceremony.

All events coordinated by the Buttonwood Park Zoological Society play a key role in raising critical funds for the Buttonwood Park Zoo.  These funds ensure the highest level of animal care, environmental education and wildlife education programs.  The future of the Buttonwood Park Zoo is bright and with the generous support of the community we will continue to educate and enrich many lives.
