On Thursday, Sept. 6, over 100 golfers came out for the 26th Annual Be Great Golf Challenge at Windsor Golf Club to support after school and summer programs at Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Sonoma County’s Windsor clubs. The 4-person scramble event yields a gross-score (no handicaps used) winner and a net-score (handicaps used) winner.

Columbia Distributing won the gross-score event and M.A. Silva won the net-score event. Major sponsors of the tournament this year included Exchange Bank and Farrell-Faber & Associates. In-kind supporters included Constellation Brands, Oliver’s and Signarama.

“We are so grateful for the support of our sponsors and friends that continue to participate in this tournament which has supported Windsor youth for 26 years. Along with our sponsors, we are so grateful for the support of Rich Coombs and the entire team at the Windsor Golf Club,” said Jennifer Weiss, CEO of Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Sonoma County.

Over 300 Windsor kids attend club programs every day after school at the Brooks Road Clubhouse and at the club on the campus of Cali Calmecac Language Academy. Proceeds from the Be Great Golf Challenge support programs that promote academic success, instill good character and teach living healthy lifestyles. For more information on club programs in Windsor contact Mike Gomez, 707-838-1959 or visit the club online at http://www.bgccsc.org.
