Rotarians at Golf
Rotary Twilight Golf has been a favorite pastime of our Club for several years. On the second and fourth Thursday of each month in the summer and fall, Club members gather to play nine holes at Harding Park's Fleming Executive Course. Harding Park is part of the PGA Tour's Tournament Players Club network of courses.
This year's players are Tim Hornbecker, Leah Masuda, Michael Petricca, Tyler Sterk (before he moved to San Diego), Clif Thomas, and Frank Yoke. The players compete for the coveted Golf Trophy. The leader as of August 8, 2019 is Leah.
Club Members Complete PRLS 3
Potential Rotary Leaders Seminars (PRLS) are a series of courses designed by Rotarians to teach Rotarians skills and techniques as they prepare to assume leadership roles in their Clubs. The program was developed by Betsy Koefoed, Bill Koefoed, and Michael Ford, all former members of our Club. Those who complete Basic PRLS can go on to complete the Master PRLS series of five courses.
