by | Mar 25, 2020 | Community

Special Olympics Charity Golf Tournament 2020 has been postponed until Monday, September 14, and will be held at the Oaks Club in Valencia. Our 2020 Golf Tournament Chair is Commander Mike Hartmann, Ventura Sheriff Department; he is bringing some new fun ideas to this year’s event. Our tournament check-in starts at 7 a.m.; the Putting Contest starts at 7:30 with a shotgun start at 9 a.m. The after tournament buffet will include awards, raffle items and silent auction and will start as soon as the golfers finish on the course.
Golfers come out and join us at our 19th Annual Charity Golf Tournament and support Special Olympics Santa Clarita and Tri-Valley athletes. “The annual Special Olympics Golf tournament is a great day of golfing with fun games, great food & drink,” said Dianne Stevenson, golfer. “It’s also a great day with the community coming together to help raise money for the Special Olympics. This is a golf tournament you don’t want to miss!” said Stevenson. Sign up early, as we have sold out the last couple of years,
Special Olympics Santa Clarita and Tri-Valley provide year-round Olympic–type sports to those with intellectual disabilities. Special Olympics sports include twelve sports including two newest sports; flag football and cheerleading. We have over 2,300 community athletes in our regions. Our sports and training programs are for those ages 8 and older and our Young Athlete Program is designed for those two to seven years old.
All the money raised from this golf tournament goes to Special Olympics athletes in the Santa Clarita and Tri-Valley. These funds help cover program costs including transportation, equipment, practice facilities and uniforms. We have 30 practice facility locations in our two regions. We have about 1500 volunteers who are coaches and assist coaches who attend weekly practices and two or three tournaments per season with their team.
