The 23rd Annual Ag for Youth Golf Tournament was held at the Santa Maria Country Club and a fun time was had by all! It was a beautiful day on the course for the shotgun start/scramble with 32 foursomes participating. Sponsored by numerous agriculture-related businesses, regional banks, other local businesses, funds were raised through event sponsorships, team registrations, tee sign sponsorships, and raffle tickets for the “golfers dream” travel package to Pebble Beach.
After months of work on the part of the golf committee, chaired by Greg France, and BGCMCC staff, the event included a fun day of golf with on-course fundraising opportunities like “Buy a Drive,” “The Eagle’s Nest”, and a chance to win a truck by hitting a hole in one. Throughout the course a libations cart was available to quench a golfer’s thirst, and a tacos and margarita station was available for snacks and refreshments. Tri tip sandwich lunch was provided by the Santa Maria Country Club.
Once the golfers came into the Clubhouse for the post-tournament reception, they were treated to a delightful array of tasty appetizers; including mini pizzas, crab cakes and an ice cream sundae bar! A silent auction was on display with the chance to win amazing gift baskets, flats of delicious local berries, lots of golf gear, and dinner at the Hitching Post, among other fun prizes. Speaking of prizes, winners for longest drive, closest to the pin, and best net scores were also handed out. Boys & Girls Clubs of Mid Central Coast CEO, Michael Boyer thanked all of the golfers and showed an inspiring video from local club alum, Anthony Guerrero, about the important role Club membership had on his future. Golfers were inspired by his words and Michael made it clear that their support of the Clubs, through golf, is exactly how we can continue to help kids reach their full potential, just like Anthony.
The next golf tournament to support the Boys & Girls Clubs will be on November 7th at Hunter Ranch Golf Course in Paso Robles. To sign up for this tournament click here
