Director’s Notes

Our 2016 season is in full swing and we are making plans for all of our summer events!

We are happy to announce that our 25th annual D-day Tournament and Fundraiser is again slated for Saturday June 11th.

Please remember that this event is our only fundraiser of the year and has always allowed us to keep our fees at a reasonable cost for our members.

We will again ask all of our juniors to participate by soliciting $1 donations for each of our opportunity drawing tickets. Each junior is asked to be responsible for 25 tickets. We will be giving away a new set of Callaway XR OS irons and carry bag. The drawing will take place at Heartwell GC on Saturday June 11th.

In addition, we will need assistance in securing golfers for our tournament and prizes for our live auction.


We would be grateful if everyone would participate in some fashion.

Drawing tickets will begin to be distributed on Friday April 1st and are due back on Monday June 6th.


As the school year draws to a close please remember to include our summer events in your plans. The LBJGA will again host a summer league at Recreation Park 9 on Tuesday afternoons at 2pm beginning on July 5th.

We will also be partnering with the Long Beach Golf Festival for the Crosby Memorial Junior Championship at Rec Park 9 and 18. This event will be held on Wednesday June 29th. Entry forms are available on line or at the Long Beach Junior Golf Building at 6730 E. Carson St.

For questions, please call Sheri or myself at (562) 570-1272.

D-day Tournament and Fundraiser

As noted above, our 25th annual D-day tournament, dinner, drawing, and live auction will be held on Saturday June 11th at Heartwell GC. The festivities will begin with a 1pm shotgun start.

This event raises enough money to allow us to maintain our low registration and weekly fees for all of our members.

We need everyone's help to obtain golfers for the event, as well as donations of new merchandise or gift cards for our auction. If you would like to serve on our tournament committee please contact Lisa at the LBJGA office. We will also need adult and junior volunteers on the day of the event.

We do need everyone's help to make this tradition a success!

Please be responsible with the tickets for our drawing and return them as soon as they are sold.

A lot of hard work is ahead of us but D-day is one of the highlights of the LBJGA season.
