Foundation Hosts Southern California Tournament

Cooler weather greeted this year’s field of golfers participating in the 2013 CGA Educational Foundation Golf Classic and Illuminator Rally on Wednesday, July 11, at Pacific Palms Resort in Industry, Calif.

More than 230 players enjoyed a full day of golf stretched over both the “Ike” and “Babe” courses and great networking opportunities both prior and after the tournament.

In addition, attendees heard from football legend and ESPN College Game Day Analyst Desmond Howard who shared his unique perspective on the game. His presentation was sponsored by Kellogg Company.

The July 11 event was the first of two tournaments sponsored by the CGA Educational Foundation. The second tournament is July 23 at Blackhawk Country Club in Danville, CA. This event is sold out.
