The 20th annual Dave Stockton Coyote Classic will be held on June 6 at the historic Arrowhead Country Club.
CSUSB baseball has joined up with the Dave Stockton event to contribute to current and future Coyote student-athletes on our baseball team.
Stockton, who is the club’s professional golfer on staff will be there with the help of his sons Ron and Dave Jr.
They will be in attendance to help coach the attendees who are paying for the event.
Stockton has a decorated career as an 11-time winner on the PGA Tour,14 times on the Champions Tour, and a Ryder Cup Captain(c). It will be a solid learning experience for anyone in attendance who really wants to receive optimal training and participate in a good cause for our Coyote baseball team.
The event itself will start at 8:30 a.m. with registration, followed by a 9:30 a.m. putting clinic with Dave Stockton, which then is followed by the shotgun start at 10:30 a.m.
A shotgun start is defined, by golf.about.com, as being, “a way of starting a golf tournament with all the golfers entered in that tournament beginning play at the same time” on different holes.
The day concludes at 5:00 p.m. with an award ceremony, dinner, raffle and silent auction. All the proceeds from the event go directly to the Coyote baseball team.
The Coyote Classic is partnering up with the Stocktons to help provide and contribute to the baseball team to gain the necessary tools to enhance their performance of play and to update their facilities.
This is the first time the event has occurred since 2014.
According to csusbatheltics.com it previously raised over “$586,000 that supports the scholarship and training needs of all 10 NCAA-sponsored sports at CSUSB,” stated the website.
The Coyote Classic tournament
is set to contribute its proceeds to the student-athletes of baseball this year.
Coyote baseball head coach, Dave Martinez, is more than thrilled that the event is going to be taking place.
“All the proceeds that are from the baseball 4-domes goes directly to the program,” stated Martinez.
This would help cover the cost of scholarships, equipment and other sources needed for the Coyote baseball team.
Tickets are on sale and can be purchased through a printable brochure on the CSUSB Athletics website or contact Christina Johnson, who is listed on the brochure for questions.
The tickets are being listed from $250-$15,000 for all different sorts of packages and treats that come along with the packages the group or individual purchases.
“The tournament is $1,300 per 4-some. You get a round of golf with cart, breakfast, lunch, beverages on course, cigar station, closest to the pin entry, long drive entry, $100 worth of Nike merchandise, a hat and a few small items,” concluded Martinez.
The Dave Stockton Coyote Classic will only go as far as we can. Please help spread the word and contribute to our fellow Coyotes because our athletes are students first. We are students in this together as a family to promote all our future aspirations.
