The SCGA Foundation will be hosting its 3rd Annual Golf Marathon at Arcadia GC May 5 and Heartwell GC May 12. Each participant will play 100 holes of golf in support of the SCGA Foundation’s programs. Some of the Foundation's most active program participants are taking on the challenge of the marathon and will be helping raise funds themselves!
Sachi & Dario Hamada: Sachi and Dario (pictured) are second-time marathon participants, having both completed the 100 holes at Arcadia GC last year. They are both active members of the SCGA Foundation's G.A.M.E. Club program and have participated in Youth on Course since 2008.
