Seeking Sponsors, Players and Volunteers for the 9th Annual Diablo Golf Classic
June 23, 2016

Point the Way Foundation is currently seeking players, sponsors and volunteers for the annual Diablo Charity Golf Classic! The event is set for Saturday, Oct. 29 at the Twin Oaks Golf Course in San Marcos and is bound to be one of the best events yet!

The Diablo was started in 2008 by a group of friends as a way for golfers of all skill levels to play in a fun, scramble format golf tournament that took the normal rules of golf and turned them on their head. Today, the Diablo is one of the craziest, wackiest and most hilarious golf tournaments around. With traditional holes such as the longest drive and closest-to-the-pin, to Diablo Hole challenges such as teeing off on your knees and putting with a hockey stick, there is no other tournament quite like the Diablo. It is perfect for golfers and non-golfers alike, and best yet, every cent raised goes directly to Point the Way Foundation to help support our military men and women.

Did we mention that the Diablo has the BIGGEST prizes, the COLDEST beer, the BEST sponsors and by far the COOLEST players and volunteers? Read on for a little more information about each group.

The Players

Here’s the thing about playing in the Diablo – you do not have to be a golfer. We repeat, you do not have to be a golfer. The tournament is set up so that everyone, whether they golf or not, will have a good time and have a chance at making a big play on one of the holes. While there are plenty of holes to play as a serious golfer, and of course prizes for whichever team scores the lowest, with our many Diablo challenges, players should never expect a hole to go as planned. Players in the Diablo Golf Classic tend to be remarkable people that like to let loose and have a little fun on the course, and raise money for charity in the process.

The Sponsors

Sponsors of the Diablo Golf Classic have exclusive access to a unique and diverse group of good-willed, golf-minded, fun-oriented, decision-making people. The Diablo is marketed to more than 30,000 people in the San Diego community through news outlets, promotional events and social media. In addition to the Diablo’s active fan base, your message will reach hundreds of volunteers, consumers and business owners, as well as a full course of golfers on the day of the event. Don’t miss your chance to reach this special demographic while making a meaningful difference in the lives of our military men, women and children.

The Volunteers

Volunteers at the Diablo have just as much fun as the players, if not more! We are currently seeking volunteer groups and individuals to make this year’s Diablo go off without a hinge. No successful fundraiser happens without that special group of generous and caring people who donate their time and energy to help others. The Diablo is no different. Without our amazing volunteers, this event simply would not be possible. Join us this year! All volunteers receive a t-shirt, snacks, drinks, dinner, good karma and lots of laughs for their time!

The Charity

All proceeds from the Diablo Golf Classic are donated to Point the Way Foundation , which is a 501(c)3 that supports non-profit Military, Children and Community organizations in need of assistance. Point the Way has contributed to military programs such as STEPS, The Wingmen Foundation, We Heart Vets, and many others! To date, the Diablo Golf Classic has helped raise thousands of dollars in donations. This year’s goal is to raise $50,000 for Point the Way.

The Prizes & Auction Items

These ones are so important that they get their own write-up. Yes, the prizes and auction items at the Diablo are THAT awesome! We’re talking brand name clubs like Titleist drivers and Scotty Cameron putters, tickets to Disneyland and SeaWorld, golf bags from Travis Mathew golf bags, gift cards to everywhere from restaurants to apparel stores, autographed sports memorabilia and so much more! With a live auction and plenty of chances to both purchase and win raffle tickets, there is no telling what you might go home with after the Diablo.
