The Riverview Education Foundation (REF) will be hosting its 14th annual REF Golf Classic on Saturday, October 6, 2012.
This year’s shotgun-start, scramble-format tournament will be held at the Club at Redmond Ridge, formerly known as Trilogy.
This is a fun event for avid golfers and casual players alike, with several contests along the way for men, women and students.
Additionally, prizes will be awarded to the top three foursomes. More motivation to play is this year’s hole-in-one prize: a five-day/four-night trip for two to the 2013 U.S. Open golf tournament, with round trip airfare, accommodation and tickets to all rounds included.
New last year, the REF Cup will be awarded to the lowest scoring team representing a Riverview School District school or program.
The team representing Cedarcrest High School won the inaugural cup, beating out teams from Eagle Rock Multi-Age Program and Cherry Valley Elementary School. REF hopes to have teams representing every school vying for this beautiful cup this year.
Cost has remained steady over the past few years, with registration holding at $125 per golfer, $100 for RSD staff and students. For this, golfers receive one 18-hole round of golf with cart, the chance to win skills contests along the way and a delicious barbecue/awards banquet afterward.
Golfers can also purchase packages to improve their foursome’s total score (think mulligans and moving up to a closer tee). Additionally, golfers will have the opportunity to buy a ball – or two – to enter into the ball drop where the winners will split the pot with REF. This year, however, golfers have an added incentive to get their registrations in early: registration fees go up to $140 on September 15!
As of printing, REF would like to thank their sponsors who help make this event possible: Automotive Specialties, Builders’ Supply, Cardinal Heating and AC, Carnation IGA, Duvall Family Health Mart, Duvall Firefighters Association (DFFA), Eastside Professional Firefighters, Hood Canal Press, JP Landscaping, Pacific Mobile Structures, Second Generation Salon, Sign Pros, SHC Financial, the Sue Linnerooth Real Estate Team, Twin Drum Percussion Studios, Zetec, Inc. and our Birdie level sponsor, Erickson McGovern Architects. There are still opportunities to sponsor.
As always, the proceeds benefit our students directly by providing funding for grants to support educational opportunities in the Riverview School District.
