FALLBROOK – Over 100 players enjoyed a day of golf at Journey at Pechanga, Friday, Sept. 30. Winning the golf tournament with only a one-point difference made for good-natured competition on the course with some fun ribbing between the teams. The event which ended with a savory banquet, helped raise over $60,000 for Boys & Girls Clubs of North County.
According to Golf Now, Journey at Pechanga is a "Bring your A Game" type of course and the golfers loved the challenge. With a score of 49, Christopher Frederick, Daniel Kempff, Kevin Hauser and Aaron Wheeler took home the North County Cup. Wheeler continued his winning streak and won the long drive contest; Scott Grimm won the putting contest, and Clint Daghlian was closest to the pin, knocking it 1 foot 5 inches away from the hole.
"It was such a beautiful day," said Allison Barclay, CEO of Boys & Girls Clubs of North County. "The players and sponsors had a great time on a challenging course, raising funds to invest in our kids and families. We are so appreciative of our amazing community who is always willing to step up and support our mission."
Immediately following the tournament, guests were treated to an awards ceremony featuring an auction with prizes donated from local businesses. The banquet also included a BBQ spread and the presentation of awards to the tournament winners.
To save the date for next year, mark the calendar for Sept. 29, 2023, for the Third Annual North County Cup. All proceeds of this event directly support the programs and services of the Boys & Girls Clubs of North County.
