There are some pretty great experiences up for grabs at the Del Mar Country Club Golf Tournament and Dinner-Gala.
The goal of the function Saturday in Rancho Sante Fe, California, is to raise funds for SOF (Special Operations Forces) Support Foundation but the auction prizes are next-level. It might be the only way most of us would ever have a chance to do some of these things.
For example, want to play golf at Michael Jordan’s private golf club, the Grove XXIII? Oh, and for this round of golf you’ll play alongside Michael Strahan, who won a Super Bowl as a member of the New York Giants.
Perhaps you’d rather head to the Arizona desert in February for a VIP weekend for suite tickets at the WM Phoenix Open at TPC Scottsdale, and, a pair of tickets to Super Bowl LVII, which kicks off right after the final round across town in Glendale at the Arizona Cardinals home stadium.
Or maybe your thing is a Vegas weekend with a stay at the MGM Grand, a round of golf at Shadow Creek Golf Club with musician and golf nut Darius Rucker, and a private dinner.
There’s going to be much more up for auction at the event, which starts with an 18-hole golf scramble prior to the gala. Special guests at the event include keynote speaker Michéle Flournoy, featured speaker Michael W. MacKay and special guest Retired Navy SEAL Bob Harward.
Flournoy was Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Strategy under President Bill Clinton and Under Secretary of Defense for Policy under President Barack Obama. MacKay is a Defense Fellow in the House of Representatives Washington, D.C., serving as the Military Assistant to the Legislative Director for defense, nuclear, military construction, veteran’s affairs and related issues. Harward is a retired United States Navy SEAL and a former Deputy Commander of the United States Central Command.
