Thank You for an amazing golf tournament
We really appreciate your support
The Pleasanton Chamber of Commerce would like to thank our sponsors, golfers, contributors and volunteers. For the first time since August of 2019, we returned to Callippe Preserve Golf Course for our biggest fundraising event of the year. We were thrilled to have over 130 golfers participate in a fun-filled afternoon. The day was successful for the Chamber, and we realize that this is due to the many participants and contributors, such as you. On top of 18 holes of scramble golf, golfers had bbq tri-tip sandwiches for lunch, on-course tacos, beer served by a robot, margaritas and bundt cakes just to name a few followed by dinner and raffle prizes. Contests for putting, long drive, and closest to the pin were part of the day as well. We hope you had a good time and enjoyed the day, and we hope to see you all at our golf tournament next year.

Special thank you to our Main Event Sponsors
