BGCSM’s annual Jeff Ritchie Memorial Golf Classic, presented by EDCO Waste & Recycling Services, gathers a full field of 144 golfers who play a round of golf to show their commitment to providing youth with the tools they need to build Great Futures. The event raises over $100,000 in crucial funds needed to support the Club’s mission-driven programs and services, ensuring that program costs remain affordable to San Marcos families.
At the event, guests can look forward to:
- Competing in a 4-person scramble format tournament
- Enjoying complimentary on-course food & beverages
- Participating in contests & activities for prizes
- A post-tournament happy hour awards reception
- Supporting Great Futures for local kids & teens
The day begins with registration at 8:00 a.m. where guests can begin the day by browsing raffle opportunities and enjoying complimentary refreshments. The tournament officially begins with a short rally and shotgun starts at 9:30 a.m. Guests are met by various vendors, hole sponsors, and contests throughout the day on course. In addition, guests in attendance and other community members can participate in an online silent auction that offers a variety of exciting packages to bid on.
As the players end their round of golf around 2:00 p.m., the tournament ends with a live tally of contest winners and the announcement of the first through third place tournament winners during a Happy Hour Awards Reception with food and beverages. The finale of the event features a Helicopter Golf Ball Drop, where anyone can enter to win a $1,000 cash prize.
