United Boys and Girls Clubs of Santa Barbara County (UBGC) will host its 4th Annual Golf Tournament Sept. 16 at La Cumbre Country Club. 

Each year, the goal is to raise money to support UBGC after-school programs and support its mission: “To enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring and responsible citizens.”

The tournament has grown each year with more perks for the participants. The Travis Mathew Van will be back with each player receiving a $100 gift certificate to shop for new golf gear.

Some of Santa Barbara’s favorite breweries will be serving samples around the course, there will be food stations and hosted beverage carts as well.

UBGC thanks Eloy Ortega and Melissa Gough, who have served as co-chairs of this event all four years.

The event starts with registration at 10 a.m.; 11 a.m. putting contest, practice and lunch. The tournament is a shotgun start at noon, followed by an awards ceremony and dinner buffet at 5 p.m.

Foursome price is $1,500 and individual players are $400. Register at http://ubgcgolf.org. There are still opportunities to be a sponsor for this years’ event ranging from Tee Sign for $250 to Golf Shirt Sponsor for $5,000.
