Floating greens, golf boats and biodegradable fish food balls highlight the annual “par-tee” on the water. Fans of golf and boating can expect to have a “hole” lot of fun honing their swings and raising money for charity one shot at a time. Teams of four and a designated boat driver “caddy” make stops at nine Islamorada waterfront venues and come ashore to tee off. Each player has two shots at the floating holes using biodegradable golf balls that dissolve into fish food after 90 hours in the water.
