2018 Southern California Golf Tournment Highlights

Coastal weather greets foundation golfers

The 2018 CGA Educational Foundation Southern California California Golf Classic was a tremendous success with perfect weather, a new golf course and a new scoring format combining to make the event one of the best in its history.

This year’s tournament was held at the beautiful Monarch Beach Golf Golf Links in Dana Point. A full field of 144 golfers were treated with near perfect weather and course conditions. Along with a new course, the tournament also used a new golf scoring system – Peoria – which brought greater equality to the field of seasoned and newbie golfers.

The July 18 event is one of two golf classics hosted by the CGA Educational Foundation. The second is July 31 at Blackhawk country Club. Proceeds from both events go towards funding the Foundation’s college scholarship and tuition reimbursement programs.

“Once again the Foundation has hosted a fantastic golf tournament that allowed for tremendous networking opportunities and provided significant funding for several great programs,” said Ron Fong, CGAEF President. “The Foundation wishes to thank all those that participated in the event and donated through sponsoring the event.”

In addition to the numerous sponsors, The Illuminators once again hosted the tournament breakfast. “The Foundation is extremely appreciative to the Illuminators for their continued generosity and support of this event,” said Shiloh London, CGAEF Executive Director.
