For the Community

This year we have selected some amazing charities to support at the SCCGC. Each of them provides a great service that really does so much to make the Chino Valley a wonderful place. Each of them also has passionate, caring and dedicated people that give so much of their time, knowledge and energy into improving our community.

  • Boys Republic – To give adolescent youth with behavioral, educational, and emotional difficulties an opportunity to achieve their maximum potential for responsible, self-directed life within the community.

  • Chino Rotary Club – To connect leaders within the community, exchange ideas about how to make a positive impact in the community where we work and/or live, and put those ideas into action.

  • Chino Valley Fire District Foundation – To promote life, safety, and welfare of the public through educational programs, direct assistance, and financial support of charitable organizations, victims of tragic events, and injured firefighters.

  • Love Them All Foundation – To help children & adults with disabilities play organized sports and participate in social activities.

  • Priceless Pets – To rescue, rehabilitate, and re-home unwanted and abandoned dogs and cats.

  • The Let It Be Foundation – To provide support and services to families of children diagnosed with life-threatening pediatric illnesses, thereby restoring the sense of normalcy in the home environment.

In Honor of Gary Christman

Here is Gary Christman at the first Southern California Charity Golf Classic. He delivered drinks and food to golfers during the tournament and planned to do the same this year. From the very beginning he was one of the biggest supporters of the tournament. In May, Gary passed away.

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.

Additional Information on The Social Golf Course

John Hakim was a guest on the Defining Success Podcast on July 22, 2013 when we discussed creating this book for the golf course industry.  It’s been a lengthy and rewarding process to create this book to help educate golf courses on how to use social media to reach more customers.

David Kramer, from Los Serranos Country Club wrote the foreword to our book and in the foreword, he wrote, “I’m certain owners and operators of businesses in other industries will find an inspiring introduction to the practical benefits social media can provide for improving your relationship building with your marketplace and patrons.”

A special thank you to my Dad, Larry and my Mom, Annie for helping to edit the book.  Your expertise and insights were invaluable.  And to my sister, Lacey for designing the cover, formatting the book and assisting in the editing of the book.

Lastly, I’d like to thank you for being involved with us.  I encourage you to download the book, rate and review it in Amazon.

Thank you!

Team 19th Hole Media Wins Bunkers Paradise Charity Golf Tournament

Team 19th Hole Media, comprised of Gary Christman, Kenny Donovan, Mike Quiroz and myself, Zeb Welborn won the first ever Bunkers Paradise Charity Golf Tournament for the Special Olympics of Southern California on Sunday, October 13.

Team 19th Hole Media

Roughly 50 golfers competed in the event held at San Dimas Canyon Golf Course.  The event started at 1pm and ended at dusk with the raffling off of some great golf prizes for the golfers that attended.

Our group was the first to tee off and had someone in our group poised to win all of the closest to the pin and long drive contests, but none of us won.  We did; however, shoot a 14-under par 58 to tie for the low score.

The round was filled with great drives by Mike Quiroz, great approach shots by Kenny Donovan, a great short game from Gary Christman and I helped out a little bit to fill in the gaps.  It also helped that we all made a lot of long putts.

We couldn’t be happier to have entered the contest and had such a great time, with a great group of golfers for a great cause.

I have known the tournament organizer and Editor-in-Chief at Bunkers Paradise, Ken Lee, for some time now.  Ken introduced me to Kate Hughes, who also competed and Gary Lee, who owns Lakers Nation and Bunkers Paradise.

I’d also like to say thanks to San Dimas Canyon Golf Course.  Ken and I became acquainted through Twitter and when I signed on to manage social media at San Dimas Canyon Golf Course, Ken wanted to make the course the home course for Bunkers Paradise to which General Manager Trip Stevens agreed.  Just a few months afterwards, Bunkers Paradise was holding their first ever golf tournament bringing 50 golfers to the course.

Thank you San Dimas Canyon Golf Course and Trip Stevens for working with me and Bunkers Paradise to help get this tournament off the ground and thank you Bunkers Paradise for choosing San Dimas Canyon Golf Course to host your tournament!
