The annual Golf Outing for the Los Angeles/Orange County Chapter of the SMTA held their 16th Annual Golf Outing at the Old Ranch Country Club in Seal Beach, CA on July 27th, 2015. This event drew 76 Golfers and 22 sponsors.


Old Ranch is a private golf course with immaculate greens and well maintained fairways. Water holes are on several fairways making for a challenging, but fun day.


This year’s event was won by Team 7 with a low score of 62. Players included Leonard Bancroft, Donn Magno, Vince Marchetti and Lee Robertson from Paradigm Contract Manufacturing.


 SMTA_golf15-02.jpgNet proceeds from this event are donated to the Charles Hutchins National Scholarship, Totally Kids an organization helping medically challenged kids in Yorba Linda and to Rising Tide an after school program on the campus of Covenant Presbyterian Church in downtown Long Beach for disadvantaged children providing homework tutoring, fun events and dinner to over 90 children.

Clear skies and a gentle Seal Beach breeze cooled the day and made golf comfortable and fun.
