SANTA ROSA BEACH, FLA – In the spirit of giving, the members of Santa Rosa Golf & Beach Club have come together to donate a heartwarming sum of $3,780 to the Walton County Sheriff’s Department Santa Patrol. This generous contribution aims to support the Sheriff’s Office in ensuring a joyous Christmas for children and families in need within the community.


For decades, the Santa Patrol initiative has been a beacon of hope during the holiday season, originating in the 1970s. Over the years, the program has evolved to collect not only toys but also essential items such as clothing, school supplies, and various donations for children in underprivileged homes.


The Walton County Sheriff’s Office remains steadfast in its commitment to creating the perfect Christmas morning for as many children and families as possible. The Santa Patrol program, guided by School Resource Deputies, carefully selects families in need during Christmastime. The presents, thoughtfully chosen, are then personally delivered by dedicated staff members.


Santa Rosa Golf & Beach Club, a proud supporter of community initiatives, extends its heartfelt support to the Walton County Sheriff’s Department Santa Patrol. The club, located on Scenic Highway 30A, offers a member-owned golf course and private beach club, providing access to golf, dining, and more across its 85-acre coastal expanse.


In a longstanding tradition, the club hosts its Annual Holiday Open House Party each year for its members, charging a nominal fee for attendance. One hundred percent of the proceeds are given back to a deserving charity, and this year marks the second consecutive year that the club has chosen Santa Patrol as its charity of choice.


“This is the second year our club has chosen Santa Patrol as our charity of choice,” said Michael Bickett, general manager for the club. “Our members and staff alike are honored and grateful our community has such a giving heart, especially during the holiday season for deserving families.”
