2015 Stonebrae Classic Volunteer Registration Now Open

FWGA Members invited to Volunteer for 2015 Stonebrae Classic.
Hosted July 13th -19th, in the height of the Tour season, the Stonebrae Classic attracts enthusiastic golf fans from all over the Bay Area. Just as Tony Finau did in 2014, this year’s champion will leave TPC Stonebrae with a significant advantage on his quest to earn one of the 50 coveted PGA TOUR cards that are available for the 2015-16 season on the Tour.                                  
The PGA Tour relies on thousands of volunteers each year to run its events, because at the end of the day, after the winnings have been distributed and costs covered, the rest goes to charity (the First Tee of the East Bay and NCGA Youth on Course).  At the Stonebrae Classic, our volunteers will play a critical role in making sure the event runs smoothly.  Each volunteer is asked to purchase a uniform and package at a cost of $65. The volunteer package provides a behind-the-scenes, unparalleled PGA TOUR experience including:                               
  • A uniform package
  • Complimentary food & beverage on the days that you work
  • Access to the Tournament Grounds for the week
  • Two (2) additional “good any one day” grounds tickets.
  • Free parking             
Additionally, all volunteers who work two complete days (or four 1/2 days) will receive a certificate for a complimentary round of golf at TPC Stonebrae!  Each volunteer can bring up to one guest for ­­­­$95 (includes cart and range).  (Forecaddie required. Tuesday-Thursday redemption. Non-transferable certificate. Must be used by July 31, 2016.)

2015 Vintner's Tournament

It was a picture perfect morning as 17 early bird golfers made their way to Yountville to play in the  2015 9 hole Vintners Tournament.  The weather was great, the course in great shape and we enjoyed   
new and renewed friendships with lunch afterwards on the deck.  
The format was Cha Cha Cha.   The 1st place team was Judith Coleman-Cohen, Barbara   Carrigg, & Kathy Kling. DSC00263 
The 2nd place team was Patty Cordoba, Yvonne Lee, Leta Maco, and Anne Ritcey.   DSC00250
The low gross and low net player was Barbara Carrigg.  The closest to the pin was Kathy Kling and the longest/straightest drive was Lisa Morphis.   
I suspect that there was a bit of wine tasting before some of the groups headed home.  
Thanks to our tournament coordinator Pat Charles for a great tournament.
