FROM GOLF TO GROUPER The South Seas Resort on Florida's Captiva Island is betting its fish and golf scramble will make a big splash during business and incentive trips. Teams of four start out the scramble by playing nine or 18 holes of golf. Then they hop aboard separate boats for light-tackle fishing in either the Pine Island Sound or the inshore waters of the Gulf of Mexico.
Contestants are awarded points for each fish they catch and release--the larger or more rare the species, the higher the points. The teams' total fish points are deducted from their golf scores, and the group with the lowest final score wins. Add a reception and you've got a triathlon.
The 330-acre South Seas Resort features 27,000 square feet of meeting space, accommodating up to 500 attendees.
