ADSC Golf Tournament - TPC Harding Park
7:00am Departure from Hotel
8:30am Shotgun Start

Located in Griffith Park, one of the U.S.'s largest urban parks, Harding Municipal Golf Course is a beautiful, tree lined, well established course built in 1924. The fairways are somewhat narrow with many challenging, narrow approaches into guarded greens. Although 6,536 yards long, it plays much longer and is a challenge for both low and high handicappers alike. It requires accurate shot placement to be successful.
Green Fees per Person: $250.00 USD plus taxes and not included in your registration fee
Maximum of 52 Players.  You must register by Tuesday, July 5th.

Welcome Reception -  "Streets of San Francisco"
Clang, Clang, Clang Goes the Trolley... The ambiance of this city is one you will always remember.  Tonight experience the melting pot of delicacies that only San Francisco can offer.  Meet up with your colleagues and friends and plan your week with us!

Spouse/Companion Tour - Alcatraz and Sausalito & Lunch

Today, you will be "sentenced" to a "short term" on the notorious  Alcatraz Island federal penitentiary. From the San Francisco waterfront,  you will take a short ferry ride across the chilly waters of the Bay to "the Rock." Here, visit the cells once occupied by some of the nation's most infamous criminals. On this austere wind and fog-ridden island, it is easy to see why few attempts were made to escape into the treacherous bay with its undertows and turbulent waters. An expertly created audio tour contains interviews with former prisoners and guards from "the Rock," providing fascinating insight into prison life in the middle of the San Francisco Bay.

Following the tour, you will be treated to lunch in a quaint Sausalito waterfront  restaurant, Odines, then have free time before you ferry back to San Francisco.
Fee per person: $140.00 USD. The tour price is not included in your registration fee.
Minimum is 20 attendees. If minimum is not met, tour is subject to cancellation.
You must pre-register for this tour.
Women's Association Fundraising 
In continuing their fundraising efforts, the Women's Association will conduct a Silent Auction on Saturday evening. The chosen theme  - what else but "California Dreamin". Bidding starts prior to the awards luncheon on Friday, with the final bidding taking place during the closing reception on Saturday night. If you choose to donate an item for the auction, you can either bring your item with you, or find time to browse the unique shops in San Francisco or wherever your excursions will take you this week.

Saturday, August 4th
