Michael Douglas, Morgan Freeman to Host Celebrity Golf Tournament in The Bahamas

Atlantis in Paradise Island, The Bahamas will play host to the 11th Michael Douglas & Friends Celebrity Golf Tournament (MD&F), May 25-27 at the 18-hole, par 72 championship Ocean Club Golf Course.

Co-hosting the tournament with Michael Douglas will be Oscar-winner Morgan Freeman, on behalf of PLAN!T NOW (P!N), the disaster preparedness non-profit which has granted over $100,000 in scholarships to students impacted by severe weather events.

Proceeds from the televised golf tournament featuring four teams of celebrity golfers will equally benefit P!N and The Motion Picture & Television Fund (MPTF), the leading Hollywood charity providing health, financial and social services to the entertainment community.

Kenny Chesney, longtime PLAN!T NOW advocate, will contribute to the fundraising efforts with a live benefit concert on Saturday, May 26 at Atlantis. This special intimate performance will be before Chesney kicks off his summer tour in June. Since its inception, MD&F has raised more than $10 million for MPTF.

“I am pleased to have my good friend Morgan co-hosting this year’s golf tournament,” said Douglas in a written release. “We are looking forward to bringing our friends and colleagues to Atlantis, a resort where my family and I have enjoyed many great times. I am grateful to Atlantis for their hospitality and support of an event that is very important to me. We look forward to raising significant funds for MPTF and P!N.”

The MD&F Tournament will unfold on the resort’s Tom Weiskopf designed 18-hole championship course – Ocean Club Golf Course – a picturesque 72-par layout featuring breathtaking views from signature holes and seaside greens and tees stretched over 7,100 yards of coastline.
