Rancho Santa Fe Community Center readies for golf tournament

RANCHO SANTA FE — It’s that time of year again.  While each golfer takes their swing at the end of the month, they’re benefiting the RSF Community Center.

The Center offers many enriching opportunities for the whole family, so taking part in the Oct. 27 Golf Classic remains an anticipated event.

“The ‘All Fore the Community’ Golf Classic is our second largest annual fundraiser and a great opportunity for residents and business people alike to support in their local community center,” said Linda Durket, Executive Director.  “We’re honored to have the privilege of holding the tournament on the RSF Golf Course which gives players a first-class experience.”

This annual tournament marks its 21st year.

As the years push on, the tournament has inevitably grown more popular.  Event coordinator, Kimberly Swaney, said it’s one of the most enjoyable tournaments.

“Golfers love the pace of play, variety of on course games, assortment of food and beverages and of course the exceptional beauty of The Rancho Santa Fe Golf Course. The After Party has become equally as popular and is a great way to finish the day,” Swaney said.

This year, the RSF Community Center’s title sponsor for the golf tournament is the Mikles Family.  Durket said the Center is honored the Mikles’ made such a wonderful commitment.

“They have been very generous supporters of the RSF Community Center and their support and involvement have had a large impact on the high quality of our after school classes and family programs,” said Durket, adding how fortunate they are to have such ongoing commitment from the Mikles Family.

Swaney said this year the Golf Classic will feature a noon shotgun scramble.  The kickoff will also include a savory Mexican buffet lunch.

“Players will be able to enjoy fabulous tee prizes, massages provided by Massage Heights, complimentary Swing Analysis, beverages and food samples from local vendors and a fun and exciting after party and awards dinner,” she said. Swaney continued, “Following our tournament, players and guests will be invited to join us at our After Party and Awards Dinner in the Clubhouse.”

The After Party will be a buzz of activity with silent auctions, scrumptious hors d’oeuvres, and spirits.  Following this, Swaney said, the dinner will take place, along with a live auction and recognizing the tournament winners.

“The top three finishing teams will qualify to play for free in the semifinals of the Randy Jones Invitational in January 2015. Finalists of that tournament will have an opportunity to win $10,000 for the Community Center and an all-expenses paid trip to Pebble Beach, California.”

To date, the “All Fore the Community” Golf Classic tournament has more than 110 players and is sold out.  However, a waitlist does exist.  Anyone interested in learning more about this exciting event is asked to contact the RSF Community Center at (858) 756-2461.
