Memorial Tourney Sold Out!

The Memorial 4-man scramble golf tourney at Soboba on Feb. 25 is sold out. If you would like to be on a waiting list, please contact Tony Viola at 909-754-4148.

Here is the info on the tourney:

Grandfathers for Golf, the non-profit charity dedicated to teaching at-risk kids how to play golf for free, has announced its major fundraiser for 2022: the Memorial Tourney at Soboba Springs Resort Golf Course on Friday, February 25. The 4-man scramble format is open to all golfers of any skill level.

This is the first year the Memorial will be played at Soboba, which has graciously worked with Grandfathers to bring the event to this prestigious golf course, which is in excellent shape.

Cost is $99 per player and is tax deductible. Entry fee includes 18 holes of golf, Gift Bag, Prizes, Food and a Raffle. The tourney will begin at 11 a.m. with a shotgun start. To sign up, call Tony Viola, GfG President, at 909-754-4148. Field is limited to 144 players, and the tourney sells out fast, so get your foursomes together and make sure to sign up early. 

The Memorial (formerly the Marty Finn Memorial) is the only fundraiser the group holds each year. Grandfathers is a purely volunteer organization, with no salaries for organizers, and no fees charged to students in the program. Grandfathers has been operating for years in the Hemet/San Jacinto area, teaching hundreds of kids from all walks of life not only golf, but life skills such as sportsmanship, etiquette, camaraderie, and honor. Grandfathers gives every child a golf bag, clubs, balls, a uniform and lessons for free.

Fundraising for the past couple of years has been severely limited by Covid-19, so please help out if you can. A regular round at Soboba is $75 – $95, and the course is in the best shape it has ever been.
