The 14th annual SoCal Scramble Golf Tournament was held June 14 at Coyote Hills Golf Club in Fullerton, California. This year’s successful tournament raised over $6,000, bringing the total amount raised to over $40,000 since the event’s inception in 1993.

Funds will continue to support the NIRSA Foundation’s SoCal Scramble Region VI Scholarship Fund and other Region VI activities, including the Region Lead On Conference and state workshops. California State University, Long Beach provided scholarships to CSULB interns to attend the Region VI Conference. The SoCal Scramble Committee also announced the continuation of a $750 regional student travel fund.

The field included numerous professionals and students from California-area colleges and universities, with interns from UCLA representing an additional eight colleges. Golf clubs from UCLA, USC, UCSD and CSUF were also represented. A total of 14 NIRSA schools were represented.

The tournament utilized a four-person scramble format and included pre-tournament putting, chipping, and long drive contests. First-time sponsor Matrix Fitness sponsored the straightest/ longest drive and gave away a Vision E6 Elliptical to Tom Guiterrez from USC. The Gross Champions were Joe Lucero, Chris Ancheta, Patrick Welsh and Scott Welsh, who shot a 14 under 56. The Net Champions were Raul Garcia, Kevin Lastrapes, William Kirk and Dave McElwain, who carded a net 59. View all results.

A large factor in the success of the tournament was the tremendous support from the following sponsors: Matrix Fitness Systems, Frontier Pro Shop, Collegiate Golf Alliance, Advantage Fitness Products, Winzler & Kelly, Lundstrom & Associates, Simovich & Sons Construction, A to Z Glass & Mirror, Sterling Design and the Julie and Cindy Talk Show. Participating tee sponsors included UC Davis, UCSD, ASU, UCLA, USC, University of Oregon, and Pepperdine. All participants and sponsors are to be commended for participating in an event that will further the growth of quality recreational programs and student development.
