Optimist Club of Sacramento Golf Tournament


The Optimist Club of Sacramento is holding its 30th annual golf tournament on Friday, May 18 at Whitney Oaks Golf Club. The deadline to register was May 4, but I spoke with club member (and friend) Flavio Soria and I learned there is room for three more foursomes to join in. Why the push? Well, in addition to getting a fun day of golfing, lunch and dinner, participants are helping out five great local charities: Mercy Education Resource Center, St. John’s Shelter Program for Women and Children, Mercy Foundation, Sacramento Food Bank & Family Services and The First Tee of Greater Sacramento. Flavio tells me there will be a unique raffle of sorts: Participants buy golf balls to be part of a helicopter drop; whoever’s ball goes into the hole first wins! The cost is $150 per person and includes greens fees, cart, range, lunch and post-tournament steak dinner. Registration is at 10:30 a.m., barbecue lunch at 11:30 a.m. and the four-person scramble starts at 12:30 p.m. Whitney Oaks Golf Club is located at 2305 Clubhouse Drive in Rocklin.
