Tee Up For Special Olympians

On September 13, the Special Olympics Southern California Santa Clarita program is hosting its 8th Annual Charity Golf Tournament to benefit more than 350 local athletes with intellectual disabilities.  The event, open to all ages and skill levels, will include lunch and a silent auction.

The Tournament will feature a 4 player scramble; a putting contest; and awards for the top teams, straightest drive and closest to the pin.

Registration opens at 8:00 a.m., the putting contest starts at 8:30 a.m., and the shotgun start is at 10:00 a.m.

The individual golfer entrance cost is $175.00 and a foursome is $700.  These include green fees, cart fees, range balls, lunch, and the auction.  Contestants’ spouses are invited to attend the buffet and auction without additional cost.

Silent auction and monetary donations are requested.

This Tournament funds training and competition for athletes 8 years old and above in sports including aquatics, basketball, bocce, bowling, floor hockey, golf, gymnastics, soccer, softball, track, tennis and volleyball.  The program gives the athletes an opportunity to excel, compete in a supportive environment, and enjoy friendships in team sports.

The money raised will help Special Olympics Southern California Santa Clarita pay for sports equipment, uniforms for the athletes, facility rentals, bus transportation to competitions and outreach programs.

The Tournament will be held at the par-72 championship course, the Tournament Players Club, located at 26550 Heritage View Lane, Valencia.
