Hello Golfers!

We are just under one week away from the 19th Annual Student Legal Assistance Golf Tournament, which will be held at Sirocco Golf Club on Thursday, July 21st.

We thank you all for either sponsoring or entering a team in this year’s tournament.  As you know, Student Legal Assistance has been unable to host the tournament since 2019, and we’re looking forward to this year’s event being the best one yet!

Friendly reminder, if you have not yet provided the names of your golfers, we request that you do so by Monday, July 18th

Below is an itinerary for the day of the tournament, as well as a few reminders regarding Sirocco’s course rules.  If you have any questions or concerns regarding the itinerary please let myself or Mati Rubi know.

Golf cart rentals are included in tournament registration and have been generously sponsored by Blakes.  Golfers renting clubs from Sirocco may wish to arrive early to allow themselves time to attend the Pro Shop and get fitted for clubs, etc.

There will be a number of on-course mini games for golfers to enjoy, including our “Marshmallow Longest Drive,” “Wheel of Fortune,” and “Frisbee Bomb,” amongst others. Mulligans will be available for purchase for $10 each.  The BD&P “Survivor ball” challenge is also back – teams will be provided with a marked BD&P ball to be played at every hole, and all teams whose ball survives the round will be entered to win a prize.

Golfers are invited to enjoy complimentary non-alcoholic beverages during the breakfast and banquet lunch.  Golfers will be provided one drink ticket to enjoy a complimentary alcoholic beverage at the banquet lunch, additional alcoholic beverages will be available for purchase.
