Grip it and rip it at PSAR Golf Tournament

It’s time to grip it and rip it, tee it high and let it fly, relax and unwind, keep your head down, keep your left arm straight, stay out of the rough and swing with a wood. Here’s your opportunity to arrive at the first tee wearing outrageous, multi-colored wacky slacks and show-off to your friends how you drive for show, putt for dough and never leave a birdie putt short.

Make plans now to play in this year’s 43rd annual PSAR Golf Tournament on Wednesday, April 18, at Riverwalk Golf Course, 1150 Fashion Valley Road, San Diego. All PSAR members, plus all your REALTOR® friends from throughout San Diego County, are invited to play. This year’s tournament promises to be a “hole-lotta-fun” on the links and even more fun at the 19th hole.

Registration begins at 7 a.m., followed by a shotgun start at 8 a.m. Lunch will be served at 1 p.m. Entry fee to play is $100 per player or $400 per foursome for early-bird registration (before April 13). After April 13, the cost increases to $125 per player or $500 per foursome.

Entry fee includes green fees, cart, tee games and prizes, raffle tickets and prizes, gift bag, refreshments on the course, after-golf player awards and lunch. 

Sponsorship opportunities are available. All sponsorships include recognition in the program and at the event. Among the available sponsorships (as of press time):
  • The Lunch Buffet sponsor for $500 includes two lunch tickets, plus the opportunity to decorate lunch tables with your company items.
  • The Gold Sponsor at $1,000 includes two player spots and display your company banner at the luncheon.
  • The Silver Sponsor at $500 includes one player spot and display your company banner at the luncheon.
  • The Beverage Cart sponsor at $750 (two are available) includes two lunch tickets and your company sign on your sponsored beverage cart. You may drive on the course in the cart.
  • The tee/hole sponsors at $250 each (18 are available) including two lunch tickets and the opportunity to stay at the tee and greet the players as they pass through. Be creative. You may bring a table to display your company’s services. Have a contest, games, or giveaways at the tee.
An additional sponsorship opportunity features providing 144 items for each golfer’s goodie bag. The items can include your company’s logo or attach a business card or company label. Golf items, towels, tees, markers, suntan lotion, balls, hats, etc. are welcomed. Goodie bag items must be provided to PSAR offices by March 30.

Proceeds from the golf tournament will directly benefit the California Association of REALTORS® Housing Affordability Fund (HAF), a nonprofit that provides grants benefiting first-time homebuyers.

The HAF, a non-profit 501(c)(3), is dedicated to addressing California’s growing housing affordability crisis. The HAF was established in November 2002 to provide more options for first-time homebuyers’ entry into homeownership. HAF raises and distributes funds, collaborates and partners with other groups to promote housing, homeownership, and address housing opportunities locally and statewide. In 2016, HAF provided more than $200,000 in grants to local associations for such programs as down payment assistance to veterans and low-to-moderate income buyers.  

The HAF provides first-time homebuyers with grants for customary non-recurring closing costs paid by the buyer. Non-recurring closing costs (excluding any upfront fees paid outside of closing by the buyer) are defined as title and escrow, recording fees, HOA transfer fees, document transfer fees and loan fees, including origination, loan processing, tax service and flood certificate. No repayment of the grant is required and the grant is forgiven at the close of escrow. Funds awarded are sent directly to the title company handling the transaction prior to close of escrow.

So, let’s help raise money to help California families achieve their dream of homeownership. Because of your generosity, HAF will be able to help thousands of Californians facing the housing crisis in the state.

After all, remember that a bad day at the golf course is better than a good day at the office. Plus, don’t forget that a shot is only as good or bad as the next one, par is never a bad score and it’s better to be lucky than good. Oh, yeah, you were aiming that shot right (“I’m not always this bad”). For more information on the PSAR golf tournament, call PSAR at (619) 421-7811, or visit www.psar.org/golf.
