Take your game farther at the 13th Annual Mammoth Lakes Foundation Golf Classic
How far does your drive go at 8,000 feet? Find out at the 13th Annual Mammoth Lakes Foundation Golf Classic on Sept. 9 at Sierra Star Golf Course in Mammoth Lakes. By joining the Mammoth Lakes Foundation on the greens, you are helping with something the Foundation has been hard at work on for more than 20 years – supporting higher education and cultural enrichment in the Eastern Sierra.
The Golf Classic began in 2000 as a fun and important means of the Mammoth Lakes Foundation and its supporters to raise money for programs such as local student college scholarships to Cerro Coso; the operation of South Gateway Student Apartments; supporting Edison Theatre and Mammoth Lakes Repertory Theatre and its expanded season of productions; and planning and preparing for a proposed Mammoth Arts & Cultural Center.
Tournament highlights this year include a four player scramble format, closest to the pin on all par threes; putting contest with a guaranteed winner; hole-in-one award; raffle; and silent auction. Back by popular demand is the Super Ticket raffle with a grand prize of seven nights at Casa Russell, a deluxe four-bedroom desert resort home with pool in Indio, Calif. Super Tickets are just $25 per entry and also include one “tee shot” mulligan and five regular raffle tickets. Only one Super Ticket will be sold per person, so the odds of winning are outstanding.
Registration for the Golf Classic is just $115 for individuals and $460 for foursomes until Aug. 31. After Aug. 31 individual registration is $130 and foursome registration is $520. All participants receive greens fees and cart, use of chipping and putting greens, lunch, tournament gift, silent auction, awards party, and the opportunity to support higher education and cultural enrichment in Mammoth. The tournament sold out last year – players are advised to register early.
The Mammoth Lakes Foundation also invites tournament sponsors for the event, tee sponsorships, and in-kind donations for the Raffle and Silent Auction. Call 760.934.3781 for details. –Press Release
