Tournament raised $4500 for Taft High golf programs
Thanks to the residents of Taft, our local players, the players who came from all over California and as far as Washington, Oregon, Nevada, Arizona and Texas to have way too much fun and help raise the money for the T.U.H.S. boys and girls golf teams which will bring our total donated $44,500.
We had 99 players this year and most grew up and were educated here in Taft from the Class of 1958 and forward to 2015 with the addition of our first girl Josie Burke.
