A sold-out field of 144 golfers enjoyed a great day of golf at the spectacular Aviara Golf Club for the 66th Annual Golf Tournament, titled Clubs for a Brighter Future, presented by TaylorMade Golf Company. The tournament was a fundraiser event to benefit the Boys & Girls Clubs of Carlsbad (BGCC) and is one of BGCC’s most popular fundraising events of the year.

The day featured specialty spirits, contests and raffles, lunch provided by West Steak and Seafood, an awards reception, and on-course microbews courtesy of Ballast Point, Cigar City, Green Flash, Pizza Port, Oscar Blues, and Stone. Lucky Carlsbad resident Hope Rhoads took home the grand prize of the day, a trip for two to Pebble Beach in Northern California. The successful tournament was able to net more than $100,000. All of the proceeds will go to support the life-changing and impactful programs, activities, and services offered by BGCC.
