SANTA CLARA, Calif. - Santa Clara University's Bronco Bench Foundation is hosting the 23rd annual BBF Classic next Friday, June 1, at the Santa Teresa Golf Club.
The scramble-format tournament includes 18 holes of golf with tee prizes and team awards, including a brand new car courtesy of Frontier Ford to the first hole-in-one scored from the 14th tee. The first ace on No. 16 will be awarded a titanium driver while one on No. 7 is worth a set of Ping Irons. The first to register a hole-in-one from the fifth tee will earn a clubhouse gift certificate.
Registration begins at 11 a.m., followed by a barbecue lunch before the foursomes tee off at 12:30 p.m. in a shotgun start. The evening will conclude with a steak dinner and an awards banquet.
Tournament packages are still available by calling the Bronco Bench at 408-554-6921. The price is $195 per person, but only $150 for those alumni that earned their bachelor's degree since 1996. A $35 addition to the package will grant a golfer two mulligans, all three Gambler special contest entries, six raffle tickets and one entry in a special BBF drawing. Proceeds from the daylong event will benefit scholarships for SCU student-athletes.
A special feature of the tournament includes the No. 9 Ice Cream hole, sponsored in part by Haagen-Daaz, while the first hole is All you can drink margaritas, sponsored by Compadres Restaurant in Palo Alto. Other sponsors include Devcon, the architects of the new Leavey Center, AON Risk Services, Arthur Andersen & Company, Bank of America, Comerica Bank, Extreme Networks, Franklin Templeton and Mid-Peninsula Bank.
