With all the cancellations happening with COVID-19 it was a pleasure that the fun could continue at the 29th Annual Jr/Sr Funvitational at the Haggin Oaks Golf Complex in Sacramento, CA on July 31, 2020.
It was straight tee times instead of a shotgun start and the lunch & awards could not be held following golf due to social distancing requirements.
All day on the golf course you could hear shouts across the fairway as friends were cheering on their fellow golfers. The format was a 2-person scramble. What a great way to work as a team for all 18 holes.
There were smiles all around as the tournament ended and it was bumping elbows to thank your foursome for a great round.
The day was enjoyed by approximately 100 golfers and several were Morton Golf Foundation Board Members and friends.
Our hats are off to The a First Tee of Greater Sacramento TEAM for putting on another great event. Their continued hard work was well worth it!
Please join us next year at this event as we ALL support junior golf!
What happens when you mix 132 golfers with the same number of frozen Snickers bars? This combination always equals a successful equation for the Jr/Sr Funvitational.
On June 28, 2019, all participants gathered at the Haggin Oaks Golf Complex in Sacramento, CA, for a golf tournament demonstrating skill, sportsmanship and most importantly, fun times for all!
Cobra/Puma was the main sponsor of the event on this mild Friday morning which featurs junior players with their ‘senior’ partners.
Morton Golf Foundation was at the registration area early to greet everyone. As soon as the golfers drove off to start their 7:30 a.m. shotgun, the Morton Golf Foundation TEAM slipped off to decorate the “candy cart”. Each year the Morton Golf Foundation TEAM visits every golf hole to thank all the participants for coming out. The best part is that the TEAM offers each group a highly anticipated and much appreciated frozen Snickers bar. For those golfers that prefer a healthier alternative, Reese’s peanut butter cups were offered. 🙂
The Morton Golf Foundation TEAM are also some of the judges for the “Team Spirit” category. This is where each 2-person team has the opportunity to participate in dressing alike to add spirit to the event.
Before we knew it the golf round was complete and we were off to the luncheon.
The First Tee of Greater Sacramento gives out their annual college scholarships along with winning prizes for all age categories.
For next June, start thinking about who your partner will be for in your 2-person team & how you can create sportsmanship for the “Team Spirit” award.
