Tee up to support women’s rugby at annual golf tournament
2010-06-03 · By Editor
The summer months are a great time to practice your swing. Enjoy 18 holes on one of Long Beach’s beautiful golf courses while supporting a local, nationally ranked sports team at the same time.
The Belmont Shore Women’s Rugby Club is hosting its 4th Annual Golf Tournament on Saturday, July 24, 2010.
Last fall, through hard work and dedication, the Belmont Shore rugby team made it back to the national tournament after a nine-year hiatus, beating Detroit and finishing eighth in the nation in Division 1.
Golfers can support Belmont Shore in its quest to represent Southern California at Nationals for the second year in a row. The proceeds from the golf tournament help pay for the cost of practice lights, fields, equipment and travel.
The golf tournament at Recreation Park (“Big Rec”) is four-person scramble. The cost is $115 for an individual golfer, $230 for a pair or $440 for a foursome before July 10, 2010. (Fees go up after July 10.)
There will be a BBQ lunch on the course and an awards banquet where team prizes will be given away. Every golfer gets a custom golf club, Golf Digest subscription, a shot at $10,000 (hole-in-one) and $2,500 (putting), lunch, dinner, two drink tickets, a gift bag and two raffle tickets for a chance to win an HDTV, Blu-ray player and more.
Join the rugby girls for 18 holes of golf, lunch and cash prizes, plus a shot at $10,000 for making a hole-in-one.
The Belmont Shore Women’s Rugby team is one of the premier women’s rugby teams in Southern California. The players include teachers, students, recent college grads, mothers and women from all professions who contribute to the community. The golf tournament fundraiser is especially crucial in helping the team raise enough money to cover the ever-rising cost of air travel to Nationals. All costs not covered by fundraising efforts must be covered, individually, by the players.
The golf tournament will take place at Recreation Park (“Big Rec”) at 5001 Deukmejian Drive on Saturday, July 24. To register, go to www.golfdigestplanner.com/15117-RugbyGolf. For questions, contact Coordinator Elizabeth at (740) 706-0350 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Sponsorship opportunities are also available.
