Golf Lovers Invited to Tee Off at College Fundraiser
The College of the Canyons Golf program will host a fundraiser, "A Golfer's Dream Day," at Valencia Country Club on Jan. 14 and 28.
For $150 per person, golfers can play with members of the state championship COC Golf teams on the same course the PGA Champions Tour uses.
Teams can compete for prizes and a chance to play again on Feb. 11 as guests. All proceeds from the fundraiser support the COC golf program.
Golfers will receive a package that includes a Titleist golf glove, an Adidas cap, and an on-course lunch and beverage that will be delivered to each golfer during the round. Free refreshment stations will be at several locations on the course, as well.
At 9 a.m., golfers can warm up at the open range or compete in a putting contest. The round starts at 10 a.m. with a shotgun, followed by a short awards presentation at the end of the round.
Golf teams are limited to four people per team and can sign up to play both days.
The College of the Canyons women's program began in 1999 and won its first WSC Conference Championship in 2001. The Lady Cougars recently captured the 2007 state title.
One of the top programs in the state, the men's program started in 1988 and has made 18 trips to the Southern California Championships and 13 trips to the State Tournament. The team won its most recent state championship in 2006, bringing the total state championships to four.
