Golf was the name of the game for more than 150 committed players in the 26th Annual Coronado Rotary Charity Golf Tournament at the Coronado Municipal Golf Course on Friday, March 18. The perfect weather made it a must-do event for all who love golf!

This event is one of Coronado Rotary’s most important fundraisers of the year and the fine turnout was a big help in raising more than $50,000 for worthy charities, including Warrior Foundation causes, Limbs of Freedom, San Pasqual Academy, Coronado High School Senior Scholarships and the Barrio Logan College Institute, among many others.

Our winners were pleased to receive gift certificates for use in the Coronado Municipal Golf Course Pro Shop in amounts from $50 to $300.
