Play for Pink
The Bridges’ annual breast cancer awareness tournament nearly doubled in size from last year, with 70 players participating in the Oct. 29 event. Now in its fourth year, this event has raised over $100,000 for the Play for Pink organization. Always keen on camaraderie, this is a stress-free event for beginners as well as long-time golfers. In fact, the first place team was a class of recent graduates from Pro Steve Wilson’s Golf 101 and have only been playing for two months! Congratulations to Natalie Yount, Alice Brewer, Ronda Stracka, Alejandra Sanchez, Annie Sahm and Ros Lebrija.
“Pink” surprises included pink flamingos in select bunkers; anyone who drove into that bunker was allowed to throw out their ball without a penalty. Men dressed in pink were scattered throughout the course and for extra donations, would hit drives, second shots and putts. The morning started with pink doughnuts from VGs in Encinitas.
