2017 Scholarship Golf Tournament
Drought-busting winter rains have left Scholl Canyon Golf Course looking lush and green. It’s the perfect time to strap on your clubs and head out for 18 holes. And what better way to do it than with friends while raising money for two worthy causes?
Proceeds go towards scholarships for outstanding students in the Crescenta Valley and also to the Desi Geestman Foundation, improving the quality of life for children suffering from cancer and their families.
Wouldn’t you love to drive around town in the new hydrogen-fueled Toyota Murai? You could win one if you get a hole-in-one on Hole No. 5! The car will be on display at the event as well – thank you, Bob Smith Toyota! Chris Aristo State Farm Insurance will give $10,000 to a golfer lucky enough to get a hole-in-one on Hole No. 8. And Montrose Travel is sponsoring Hole No. 16 with a free four-day Baja Cruise for anyone acing that hole. There will be other fun challenges during the tournament but you’ll have to sign up to find out!
You can register as a solo golfer for $125 ($135 the day of the event) or pull a foursome together for only $110 each. You don’t need to know the names of all four golfers just yet – you can tell us the day of the tournament. We have to cap the players at 72 though (and we’re more than halfway there) so get your reservation in soon. Sign up at www.crescentavalleychamber.org/golf or call the office at (818) 248-4957.
This is a non-competitive tournament. All skill levels are welcome. The only goal is to have fun, take in the fresh air and enjoy the camaraderie of friends. Get there early to participate in the putting contest (7:30 a.m.). Shotgun start is at 8:30 a.m. when all 18 foursomes head out to different holes in their complimentary golf carts. By the way, if you step up to be the top sponsor ($1,500), your business’ name will be displayed on the dashboard of all the golf carts. There are other levels of sponsorship as well including Tee Sign Sponsor for $150 and Prize Sponsor for our raffle. These are great ways to get your name and logo out into the golfing, philanthropic and business communities. Call the office for more information.
After the game, golfers are treated to a freshly barbecued steak and salmon lunch from Gelsinger’s. There’ll be a masseuse on hand from Massage Envy providing free chair massages for all participants. After lunch we’ll hear from this year’s scholarship winners and then raffle off some great prizes including a hi-def television and a tourmaline diamond ring. Two raffle tickets come with your supplementary prize package, available for purchase at the event ($20). The package also includes participation in the three hole-in-one contests, the closest-to-the-pin contest, two Mulligans, and entry into the putting contest.
So whether you’re a pro golfer or an amateur grass-whacker like me, we invite you to come out to Scholl Canyon on Friday, June 30. You can be back in the office by 2 p.m. … or just start your weekend early.
