New Creation Church of Beaumont, Banning and Yucca Valley is planning its 7th Annual Golf Tournament on May 4, to benefit its summer camps and other community outreach efforts, a church representative said Tuesday.
The tournament is scheduled at the Tukwet Canyon Morongo Golf Club in Beaumont, and fees are $100 per player, which includes cart fee, green fee, driving range and lunch, and $50 for non-players attending lunch only.
Proceeds from the tournament will help reduce fees for children attending New Creation camps this summer, Juan De La Fuente, communications pastor for New Creation, said in a phone interview March 12.
This year New Creation will offer four-day camps for kindergartners to 6th-graders in June in Forest Falls, and for 6th-graders to 12th-graders in August in the Big Bear area, De La Fuente said.
New Creation has been running the camps for nine years and they are open to children throughout the San Gorgonio Pass area, De La Fuente said.
Participants in the May 4 golf tournament have the chance to win prizes, including a new car for a hole-in-one, and a 7-day 7-night trip to Hawaii on the island of Kauai, according to tournament organizers.
Registration is 6 a.m. to 7 a.m., and all participants are entered in the putting, longest drive, and closest-to-the-pin contests.
"This will be a four-man best ball scramble with a shotgun start at 8 a.m. with lunch and raffle to follow," organizers said.
Sponsorship opportunities are available:
Platinum Sponsorship: $1,500 donation or higher - includes a banner with your company’s name and logo at the registration table, sign with your company's name on a tee box indicating level of sponsorship, a free foursome in the tournament, plus lunch.
