California 2015

California · June 2015

In June 2015 four lucky members of Saints Golf travelled to northern California for a golf trip of a lifetime. Our purpose was to visit with some of our dearest friends and supporters including Dave Bonuccelli, Carol Kaufman and Kimberly Briggs.

Our first 5 days were spent in San Francisco where we had been kindly put up in the historic Western St Francis hotel right in the middle of downtown. Using this as our base we then had the fortune of joining Carol in playing some of the most renowned courses in America.

Upon leaving San Francisco we travelled south, stopping at Cordevalle, before settling into our base for the second half of the trip in beautiful Carmel. Here we met 600 Club member Dave Bonucelli and St Andrews alum Kimberly Briggs for what was going to be three days of incredible golf.

Day 1 – Claremont Country Club

Day 2 – San Francisco Golf Club

Day 3 – The Olympic Club

Day 4 – TPC Harding Park

Day 5 – Cordevalle

Day 6 – The Preserve at Santa Lucia

Day 7 – Pebble Beach Golf Links

Day 8 – Monterey Peninsula Country Club / Tehama

One of the most special features of Saints Golf is the ability to travel and spend time with our supporters, everyone on this amzing trip experienced this friendship and camaraderie in one of the most beautiful golfing locations in the world. Our thanks go out to everyone who made it happen.
