Eagle classic golf tournament March 15, 2021 Coto de Caza Golf Racquet Club

Santa Margarita Catholic High School’s annual Eagle Classic Golf Tournament was a success. The event was held at the Coto de Caza Golf & Racquet Club with golfers covering both the north and south courses. Golfers braved the frigid, rainy morning and windy afternoon.

Generous sponsors, donors, volunteers and golfers made the Eagle Classic Golf Tournament a success. This year's tournament raised 257,679 in support of the many teams and programs at SMCHS. As the school’s primary fundraiser benefiting the exceptional teams and programs of Santa Margarita, proceeds provide crucial funds for new equipment, uniforms, travel expenses, competition fees, staff training and other program-related expenses.

Throughout the blustery day, 190 golfers defied the elements for a memorable day on the green. Thank you to Hanna's Restaurant & Bar for providing the lunches and BodyArmour for providing the sports beverages. Attendees had the opportunity to purchase auction items and participate in the helicopter ball drop which sold 8,394 golf balls.
