The United Boys and Girls Clubs of Santa Barbara County will host its third annual golf tournament Sept. 17 at La Cumbre Country Club, 4015 Via Laguna, Santa Barbara.

This event would not be possible without the help of our incredible community. Special thanks go to event co-chairs, Eloy Ortega and Melissa Gough, who have co-chaired the tournament all three years.

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

The event starts at 10 a.m. with registration, followed by 11 a.m. putting contest, practice and lunch.

The tournament is a shotgun start that begins at noon, followed by an awards ceremony and dinner buffet at 5 p.m.
