On Sunday, May 20th the Murrieta Surf Soccer Club held their 1st Annual Golf Tournament at the beautiful Golf Club at Rancho California. Excitement was in the air as 73 players checked in at registration, purchased their mulligan packages, and prepared for a great day of fun and games on the golf course. Players enjoyed a fun putting contest and warmed up on the spacious driving range before they loaded up in their carts and headed out onto the course for the 1pm shotgun start.
Those who purchased a mulligan package had a chance to participate in closest to the pin and long drive contests on the course, and everyone enjoyed an excellent pace of play, finishing up the round in about 4 ½ hours. The players convened on the outdoor patio that offered spectacular views of the golf course, and enjoyed a hearty and delicious BBQ buffet and beverages. Everyone had an opportunity to purchase additional raffle tickets from several of the cheery, enthusiastic youth soccer players who assisted with the raffle drawing and team awards. Coach and Surf Director, Rob Hawkes, served as an excellent master of ceremonies as he handed out prizes to the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and last place teams, and announced the winners of the raffle.
Proceeds from the event were earmarked to provide all MSSC youth soccer players with the resources they need to further their development as athletes, including the best fields, coaching and support structures available. With the support of many coaches and parents, and our sponsor American Medical Response (AMR), everyone agreed that the golf tournament was a great start to what will be come an annual fundraising tradition for the Murrieta Surf Soccer Club.
Thank you for playing and we look forward to seeing you again next year![nggallery id=9]
