Breakfast and Bloody Marys, putting contests, golfing on a "member's only" course, prize-packed "Hole-in-One" and longest drive contests, cocktails, awards reception, raffles, silent auction, and more are all part of Ohlone College's 29th Annual Golf Tournament at Castlewood Country Club.
The 2013 Founding Sponsor, Fremont Bank, developed the tournament 29 years ago to raise funds for Ohlone Renegades Athletic teams, and has provided support for the tournament and to Ohlone College for many years.
This year's 29th Annual Ohlone College Golf Tournament, presented by FORM (Fremont Orthopaedic & Rehabilitative Medicine), is held on both the hill and valley courses of the Castlewood Country Club in Pleasanton on Monday, September 23, 2013. "This is our signature athletic event of the year," said Chris Warden, Dean of Kinesiology, Athletics, and Newark Campus. "Our teams and coaches are gearing up for a great event. It's an opportunity to thank the community for their strong support of our programs." Proceeds benefit the Ohlone College student athletic programs.
The tournament is packed with entertaining activities and prizes including longest drive, "closest to the pin", most accurate drive, and multiple Hole-in-One contests featuring prizes such as a $10,000 CD from Fremont Bank. In addition to a tasty lunch provided on the course, hospitality tents will keep players refreshed throughout the day.
The tournament is followed by the College's Athlete of the Year awards at a special reception with an athletic basket raffle and silent auction opportunities.
