Please join your fellow Rancho Santa Fe residents in celebration of the Chuck Courtney Honorary Scholarship Fund and the introduction of the latest scholarship recipients at the first annual Future Legends Golf Tournament on Monday, July 22, at the Rancho Santa Fe Golf Club.
Allare welcome — RSF residents and guests, and friends and guests in neighboring communities.
This year’s “Future Legends” tournament is sponsored by Dan Green to honor his beloved wife, Flo Green, an active member of the community and Ladies Golf Club for 26 years. For those who knew her, Flo was a dynamic and special lady, admired by everyone who knew her, a friend to all, and a very spirited golfing member of the RSF Golf Club. Flo would give her forever smile, encouraging your generous contribution to such a deserving cause.
The day promises a lot of fun with a friendly tournament golfing format, box lunch, putting contest; and all followed by dinner and dancing to the lively music of Nancarrow.
The Chuck Courtney Honorary Scholarship Fund was created in 2012 by friends and members of the Rancho Santa Fe Golf Club to honor Chuck’s devotion to the game of golf and his support, mentoring and encouragement of local young golfers.
Chuck Courtney, currently Pro Emeritus at RSF Golf Club, was Head Pro at RSF Golf Club for 21 years and is most often seen these days on the driving range with his students. Two scholarships are awarded each year to two local high school seniors and active participants with San Diego’s Pro Kids, with the hope to increase that number of students as additional funds are raised.
The students must be Honor Scholars, active in their local high schools, and assist in charitable endeavors, as well as being active in golf. This year’s scholarship awards are going to Eugene Yang and Said Shaba. Both will be joining the festivities at the golf tournament on July 22 to thank the RSF friends and neighbors for this important scholarship opportunity. Also attending will be Steven Sakara, one of last year’s scholarship award winners. Steven is now attending Baylor University with a major in biology and also has goals to go on to medical school. Xylina Romero is also one of the first scholarship winners from last year. She is attending University of California at Santa Cruz where she is majoring in marine biology. Xylina is interning at the Marine Fisheries Service in La Jolla and will not be available July 22.
Please come join the fun and help to support this wonderful and deserving cause. (All contributions to the Chuck Courtney Scholarship Fund are tax deductible: Tax ID #95 3709639.)
