19th Hole Media’s Top 10 of 2016

At our end of year meeting each year we go over a lot of material, make a lot of plans, and do a lot of business stuff. But, we also make a point to look back over the previous year and celebrate our victories.

We have come a long way since we started. Here is our Top 10 of 2016.

Top 10 of 2016

10. Speaking Gigs
This year Zeb spoke with the California Golf Course Owners’s Association and the National Golf Course Owner’s Association Arizona on digital marketing for golf courses.
9. Visiting New Client Courses in Chicago and San Jose 

One of the coolest things we did this year was add new client courses in Chicago (Village Greens of Woodridge) and San Jose (Cinnabar Hills Golf Club) . . . and, as a result, visiting those courses during the year to take social media pictures, videos and discussing how to best implement our plans for 2017.In September, Zeb brought the family for an amazing trip to Chicago and played Cog Hill, Cantigny, Village Links of Glen Ellyn and, of course, Village Greens of Woodridge. Thank you Brandon Evans for a memorable trip.In November, Zeb headed up to San Jose for the California Golf Course Owner’s Association Annual Meeting and to play/shoot social photos and videos at Cinnabar Hills Golf Club. Cinnabar Hills is a beautiful 27-hole golf course and includes the impressive Brandenburg Historical Golf Museum.

8. #GolfChat Authors

Zeb started #GolfChat in 2015 and since then it has taken on a life of its own.The Twitter chat (which takes place every Tuesday at 5PM PST) now has it’s own Author’s Group.Each month a topic is explored by golf bloggers and their articles are shared on the #GolfChat website.

We have to thank #GolfChat legends Jeremy White for orchestrating the authors group and Cassie Norris for hosting #GolfChat. As well as Pete Flanigan, Tiffany Chiasson, Todd Marsh, Tony Dear, Anne Foley-Smith, Dave Hill and Jim Burton for being #GolfChat Authors. And everyone else who has participated in #GolfChat.

7. GolfBoard

We first saw the GolfBoard in action early this year at the Golf Industry Show.Since then we’ve played it at Maderas Golf Club, Los Serranos Country Club and Candlewood Country Club.Maderas is one of the most popular GolfBoard destinations in the country and new partner, Corey Ross is solely using social media to promote it. General Manager, Michael Flickinger said their original GolfBoard fleet of four has already paid for itself.

This year we created marketing packages specifically for the GolfBoard. The GolfBoard is a great social opportunity to help attract followers and online conversations about your golf course. Our marketing packages help to leverage social media to drive new golfers to your golf course.

6. Social Media Golf Course Marketing Column and Sponsorship for California Golf Course Owner’s Association

Zeb has starting writing a column for the California Golf Course Owners Association regular newsletter. The column will share the benefits and best practices of online marketing with golf course owners.Check out his first contributions here:

19th Hole Media became a sponsor of the CGCOA this year and will be helping them recruit new members in 2017.

5. Game 7 – A Night to Remember
Game 7 of the World Series was one of the best baseball games I’ve ever seen. The game ended up being even more memorable for Zeb.Zeb watched the Cubbies break their curse with Steve Plummer, Ron Zraick, Michael Lautenbach – the past, current and future California Golf Course Owner’s Association Presidents – and Executive Director Marc Connerly while eating the best steak he’s ever had.
4. REALiTEE Golf

At the beginning of 2017, we were introduced to Dave Shultz and REALiTEE Golf.REALiTEE Golf is a majestic real golf experience that takes place indoors with a fun social atmosphere. It’s a big idea with a big personality launching it.In February we went with REALiTEE Golf to the Golf Industry Show in San Diego. There we saw founder Dave Shultz in action. He’s incredibly passionate and enthusiastic. We’re looking forward to being a part of REALiTEE Golf in 2017.

Learn more about REALiTEE Golf.

This year has been amazing for 19th Hole Media.We’ve added several new clients including Cinnabar Hills Golf Club, Desert Island Golf Club, Indian Wells Golf Resort, REALiTEE Golf, Riverwalk Golf Club, and Village Greens of Woodridge.We’ve also taken on bigger roles at Arroyo Trabuco Golf Club, and Los Serranos Country Club and continue to work for Anaheim Hills, Dad Miller, Greenskeeper.org, Robinson Ranch, San Dimas Canyon, and Strawberry Farms.

2. Southern California Charity Golf Classic

We hosted the 2nd Annual Southern California Charity Golf Classic at Los Serranos Country Club in Chino Hills, CA on July 29.With help from many in our community, the tournament met it’s goal and raised over $12,000 for Boys Republic, the Chino Rotary Club, the Chino Valley Fire District, the Love Them All Foundation, Priceless Pets and The Let It Be Foundation.The event was a ton of fun and we have already begun planning the 2017 SCCGC.

1. Corey Ross Joins 19th Hole Media

This year we added Corey Ross to the 19th Hole Media Team. Corey is the owner of Southern California Golf and Travel Blog, contributor to Southland Golf Magazine and Director of Digital Marketing and Social Media at Maderas Golf Club.

In Honor of Gary Christman

He was an excellent father, husband, friend, and community member who loved golf. He made great contributions to developing local junior golf and Ayala High School golf. We will always remember his kind heart and his smile which took over his whole face. Rest in peace.

Sign up now to join the fun and help raise over 12k for local charities.

Please let us know if you have any questions about the Southern California Charity Golf Classic. Email Zeb Welborn at Zeb@WelbornMedia.com.

Last year, the money we raised went to:

  • Boys Republic: The money raised for Boys Republic will be going towards their new Culinary Kitchen project. The boys will not only learn the Culinary Arts but also how to be confident in a restaurant setting and help prepare them to become Chefs.  Boys Republic is a private, nonprofit, nonsectarian school and treatment community for troubled youngsters. Since its founding in 1907, it has guided more than 30,000 at-risk teenage boys and girls toward productive, fulfilling lives.

  • The Let It Be Foundation: The Let It Be Foundation cares for an entire family, not just their sick child during the length of medical treatment. A family’s income level is not a qualifying factor to determine if they are eligible. Without love and encouragement, the disease can become the focus of their existence.

  • Wounded Warrior Project: Wounded Warrior Project (WWP) is a charity and veterans service organization that offers a variety of programs, service and events for wounded veterans of the military actions following the events of September 11, 2001.

  • Bark for Life: The Bark For Life movement offers an inspiring opportunity to honor cancer survivors, promote how individuals can reduce their cancer risk, and raise money to help end cancer.

  • House of Ruth: House of Ruth’s mission is two-fold: (1) To advocate for and assist women and children victimized by domestic violence and children exposed to violence in transforming their lives by providing culturally competent shelter, programs, opportunities, and education; and (2) To contribute to social change through intervention, education, prevention programs and community awareness.

  • Salvation Army: The money raised for The Salvation Army went towards food to feed the homeless and impoverished community for their Wednesday hot dinner.

  • Corona Firefighters Benevolent Fund: The money we raised when to support Tayvin J. Sheridan. Tayvin was born August 5, 2011, six weeks premature with a hypoplastic right heart and an underdeveloped right arm, right ear and right side facial paralysis. He has received physical therapy since he was 10 weeks old and has undergone two major heart surgeries. Tayvin recently realized his “little ear” is not “normal”. The money we raised went towards his ear reconstructive surgery. He will also have a heart bypass in 2016 and numerous prosthetic arms in his future. Tayvin has made tremendous progress and has become such a smart, active and strong toddler. His determination is a true inspiration to watch.

  • California Scholastic Press Association: The money raised for the California Scholastic Press Association has been earmarked to help pay for a student from the Inland Empire to attend the CSPA Workshop. The CSPA hasn’t had many students from the area, but some financial assistance would make it easier for a budding journalist to attend.

  • Chino Rotary Club: The Chino Rotary Club donated funds to four students from the Share Your Passion Scholarship and to the Ayala Golf Program.

Chino Rotary Club: The Chino Rotary Club donated funds to four students from the Share Your Passion Scholarship and to the Ayala Golf Program.

We have kept in contact with many scholarship winners and are still inspired by them. They continue to work towards following their passions and helping better the lives of others. This year we awarded 3 Share Your Passion Scholarships and gave out our first Student of the Year Scholarship Award to one of the hardest working students at The Tutoring Solution.

We’ve met so many amazing and passionate people working to grow golf.  A highlight of #GolfChat in 2015 was when professional golfer, Natalie Gulbis surprised #GolfChatters by giving away free tickets to the U.S. Open at Chambers Bay Golf Course.

We Raised $7,597.81 for Charity!

Boys Republic: $904.14

sccgcboysrepublicDavid Kramer, Senior Vice President at Los Serranos Country Club and Michael Toomey, a Boys Republic Board Advisor worked to help make the Southern California Charity Golf Classic a success.

The money raised for Boys Republic will be going towards their new Culinary Kitchen project. The boys will not only learn the Culinary Arts but also how to be confident in a restaurant setting and help prepare them to become Chefs.

Boys Republic is a private, nonprofit, nonsectarian school and treatment community for troubled youngsters. Since its founding in 1907, it has guided more than 30,000 at-risk teenage boys and girls toward productive, fulfilling lives.

The Let It Be Foundation: $828.16

sccgcletitbeRon Capps is the Ayala High School Boy’s and Girl’s Golf Coach. Ron and his teams were instrumental in putting on a highly successful golf tournament. A big thank you to the Ayala High School golf teams who did a great job working the Southern California Charity Golf Classic.

Ron decided to support The Let It Be Foundation.

The Let It Be Foundation cares for an entire family, not just their sick child during the length of medical treatment. A family’s income level is not a qualifying factor to determine if they are eligible. Without love and encouragement, the disease can become the focus of their existence.

The Let It Be Foundation was inspired by Karla Asch-Rosen,
who at the age of 15 was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor. Karla was a beautiful teen who had been involved in school dance, soccer and was a normal teenager. Her heartfelt desire was to “just be normal” and share her faith with others.

Ruthe Rosen, CEO & Co-founder, was also a big help in supporting the Southern California Charity Golf Classic. And, in an exciting turn of events, Leigh Ann Fatino, one of the organizers of the Southern California Charity Golf Classic is now volunteering with The Let It Be Foundation.

Wounded Warrior Project: $790.17

Gary Christman was all in on the Southern California Charity Golf Classic and worked hard to secure golfers, get sponsorships and donations, and supported the event on the day of the golf tournament.

Gary chose to support the Wounded Warrior Project.

Wounded Warrior Project (WWP) is a charity and veterans service organization that offers a variety of programs, service and events for wounded veterans of the military actions following the events of September 11, 2001.

Bark for Life: $509.05

sccgcbarkforlifeLyle Ballard, owner of Town Square Florist and KALEO Real Estate Agent, chose to have his portion of the funds we raised go towards Bark for Life.

The Bark For Life movement offers an inspiring opportunity to honor cancer survivors, promote how individuals can reduce their cancer risk, and raise money to help end cancer. And we won’t stop until we finish the fight against cancer!

With the support of thousands of volunteers, the American Cancer Society is helping save more than 400 lives a day.

Lyle helped immensely on the day of the event getting everything set up for our golfers.

House of Ruth: $615.42

sccgchouseruthVicki Finklestein, Executive Director of the Chino Valley Chamber of Commerce, chose the House of Ruth as her charity of choice for the Southern California Charity Golf Classic.

House of Ruth’s mission is two-fold: (1) To advocate for and assist women and children victimized by domestic violence and children exposed to violence in transforming their lives by providing culturally competent shelter, programs, opportunities, and education; and (2) To contribute to social change through intervention, education, prevention programs and community awareness.

The Salvation Army: $577.43

sccgcsalvationarmyThe $577.43 raised for The Salvation Army went towards food to feed the homeless and impoverished community for their Wednesday hot dinner.

Belinda Douglas, the Director of Operations for the Salvation Army | Ontario Corps, was an organizer and huge supporter of the Southern California Charity Golf Classic. She was responsible for tons of tasks throughout the planning and during the golf tournament and we could not have done it without her.

The Salvation Army itself donated trail mix and popcorn for the goodie bags.

The Salvation Army Ontario Corps Community Center offers a wide variety of services. Children in the community are welcome to come to the after school program and free music lessons. There are also scouting programs, art lessons, drama, singing, tutoring and Sunday School. On Tuesdays, there is a women’s support group. There are community dinners Wednesday evenings and Sunday afternoons. You are also invited to worship on Sunday. All are welcome.

For more than 120 years, The Salvation Army has been delivering services and hope to the less fortunate on the streets of Ontario and Western Inland Empire in Southern California.

The Salvation Army is invested in community outreach, including Food Bank, Box&Hot Meals, Angel Tree, Youth-At-Risk, Summer Camp, Music & Arts Training, Disaster Relief, and Spiritual Counseling.

The Salvation Army is here to help all who come seeking a better life. They offer services to help the homeless, the addicted, the elderly, youth, and anyone else who might need assistance.

Corona Firefighters Benevolent Fund: $1,048.50

sccgcfirefightersDavid and Scott Goodwin were essential to running a successful tournament and helped even though they could not attend.

The money we raised is going towards to help Tayvin J. Sheridan.

Tayvin J. Sheridan was born August 5, 2011, six weeks premature. He was born with a hypoplastic right heart, which means the right side of his heart was extremely underdevelpoed. Tayvin was also born with a underdeveloped right arm, right ear and right side facial paralysis. He has received physical therapy since he was 10 weeks old and has undergone two major heart surgeries. Tayvin recently realized his “little ear” is not “normal” and will be having ear reconstructive surgery October 1st. He will also have a heart bypass in 2016 and numerous prosthetic arms in his future.

Tayvin has made tremendous progress and has become such a smart, active and strong toddler. His determination is a true inspiration to watch and we are so proud of him. Please help us reach our goal so Tayvin can get a “normal” ear!

Help Tayvin

California Scholastic Press Association – $797.77

sccgccspaThe $797.77 we raised for the Southern California Scholastic Press Association has been earmarked to help pay for a student from the Inland Empire to attend the CSPA Workshop. The CSPA hasn’t had many students from the area, but some financial assistance would make it easier for someone.

So, if you know someone in the Inland Empire who is interested in journalism or writing, make sure you tell them about the CSPA Workshop since there is a scholarship waiting for them.

The CSPA is the most prestigious high school journalism workshop in the country and will be back for a 65th consecutive year in 2016.

The workshop accepts 25 juniors or seniors from around the country who are seriously considering a career in journalism. Their volunteer instructors guide an intensive learn-by-doing curriculum that includes news, features, editorial writing, photography, ethics, broadcast and online journalism and social media, and also share their experiences as professional journalists. Recent graduates are studying at some of the top college journalism programs in the country, and they have a growing list of graduates who are enjoying professional success.

Facebook Group Page w/PHOTOS

We also created a Facebook group page which has tons of great pictures of the event. We would love for you to share your impressions of the golf tournament and any photos you took on our Facebook Group Page!

“I will tell you this…I play in charity scrambles all over the US and I could not tell this was the first one. Great job in the organization and execution.”

“The whole day is a great memory.”

“When John (Not JohnnyGK) sunk our team’s sole par 3 birdie from about 35 feet away! I made the birdie putt on our sole par 4 hole!”

“It was well organized and most everyone was welcoming and helpful from arrival in the parking lot to the dinner and raffles.”

“I want you to know that I have organized a few of these in my time and I recognized talent when I see it. This event had a lot of moving parts and you were cool when I know things were not going well and you handled yourself with outward calm and professionalism. Well done and please put me on the list for next year.”

“Loved all the baskets and gifts. Loved the golf ball drop. Enjoyed making friends with golfers I didn’t know. Liked the Multi-Charity concept. They are all good charities. Everyone was so friendly and cared about our enjoyment. Liked women’s gifts and baskets. Lacey is a sweetheart. Can’t wait to come next year.”
