2019 Southern California Golf Classic

Grocery retailers and their supplier partners from throughout Southern California and beyond gathered at the beautiful Monarch Beach Golf Links in Dana Point, CA, for a day of networking and golf as part of the 2019 CGA Educational Foundation Southern California Golf Classic on Wednesday, July 10.

Cooler temperatures greeted the field of more than 130 golfers playing in this year’s tournament. Proceeds from this and the Foundation’s Northern California Golf Classic (July 24) help fund CGAEF’s College Scholarship and Tuition Reimbursement programs.

“Our tournaments are fantastic opportunities to help fund our two main giving programs, network with industry peers and play golf at one of Southern California’s most beautiful courses,” said CGAEF President Ron Fong. “The Foundation is extremely appreciative of the many companies that sponsored today’s tournament. Your support helps deserving college students of all ages fulfill their educational goals.”

The field of golfers were well-fed throughout the day starting with a hearty breakfast provided by The Illuminators and lunch provided on the course by Bristol Farms and Mission Foods. Congratulations to this year’s winning foursomes. Scroll below for a list of winners, sponsors, and photos from this year’s event.
