The ACBA Barristers Section is proud to announce the 10th Annual Barristers Golf Classic being held on Friday, August 15, 2014 at
Metropolitan Golf Links Golf Course located near the Oakland Airport.
Whether you’re a new golfer wanting to spend an afternoon networking with other attorneys and judges, or an experienced golfer hoping to see your name engraved on the President’s Cup, you’re welcome at the ACBA Barristers Golf Classic. Last year's winning team included: Commissioner Glenn Oleon, Commissioner Tom Nixon, Commissioner Ron Creighton, and Dan Preddy. Will there be a repeat this year?
Less experienced golfers will benefit from the tournament’s scramble format - each player tees off, the best shot is selected, then all players start from that selected position. The team plays as if it was one player, throwing out most of the hooks, slices, shanks, whiffs, and other vexing shots.
The winning team will have their names engraved on the President’s Cup. There will also be special competition holes for closest to the pin and longest drive, as well as the signature Putt-with-a-Gavel competition prior to tee-off. When you come off the course relax, enjoy cocktails, and socialize while waiting for the team score tallies. Prizes will be awarded during the banquet at the end of the tournament.
Everyone needs a “do-over” now and again… buy Mulligans early! Only $20, and all proceeds from mulligan sales will be donated to the
Volunteer Legal Services Corporation, which provides free legal assistance to low-income persons in Alameda County.
