Santa Barbara Swim Club Tees Up Annual Benefit Golf Tournament

The Santa Barbara Swim Club will present its fifth annual Stroke & Splash Golf Tournament at 8 a.m. Saturday at Sandpiper Golf Club, 7925 Hollister Ave.

The swim club’s very own Olympian, Mark Warkentin, will be the special guest speaker at the luncheon afterward. He also will play, exchanging his swim strokes for golf strokes.

Warkentin, who competed in the Inaugural Open Water Swim (10 kilometers, or 6.25 miles), came in eighth, about 20 seconds behind the winner from the Netherlands. Coming in 20 seconds after 6-plus grueling miles is like coming in 1/100 second behind in the 400 meters swim.

SBSC head coach John Dussliere also was on the U.S. Olympics coaching staff.

There will be a silent auction event at the luncheon. For more information on this event, call 805.680.1205 or e-mail [email protected] Click here for more information on the Santa Barbara Swim Club.

James Nguyen is director of the Stroke & Splash Golf Tournament.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
