All Ducks Players, Coaches, Broadcasters and Management to Join Sponsors
and Participants in Tournament Benefiting Ducks Care
The Ducks will host their 13th Annual Golf Classic presented by Honda on Friday, Sept. 7 at Oak Creek Golf Club in Irvine, Calif. The tournament will benefit Ducks Care, a fund of the McCormick Tribune Foundation. The sold-out tournament will feature all Ducks players, coaches, broadcasters and management playing alongside sponsors and fans as the “fifth” player in the Golf Classic foursomes.
Registration for the event will begin at 8 a.m. with a shotgun start at 9:30 a.m. The Golf Classic will feature numerous competitions such as putting and accurate drive contests, closest to the pin and longest drive. The day-long event will culminate with an awards dinner featuring a live and silent auction and ceremony where winners of the shamble format tournament and contests will be recognized.
Oak Creek Golf Club, designed by Tom Fazio, is a par-71, 6,850-yard course set against the backdrop of the Saddleback Mountains. Named after the beautiful creek that runs through it, Oak Creek welcomes golfers of all skill levels. Featuring tapered fairways, picturesque greens, beautiful lakes and bull-nose carved bunkers, Oak Creek rewards your senses as it beckons your competitive spirit.
ABOUT DUCKS CARE
In 1997, the Anaheim Ducks partnered with the McCormick Tribune Foundation to form Ducks Care, a fund that supports the local community through foundation approved grants. Since then, Ducks Care has granted more than $5.9 million and over 140 grants to 68 non-profit organizations throughout Southern California.
Ducks Care is dedicated to supporting organizations that facilitate positive change in our community by focusing on the education, health and well-being and recreation of children and families throughout Southern California, principally Orange County, with a particular emphasis on programs aimed at at-risk and disadvantaged populations. Ducks Care raises monies each year through a series of fundraising activities and annual events.
