Future Champions Golf celebrated this past Memorial Day Weekend with several events in various locations. This recap will focus on the Memorial Day Championship at Carlton Oaks in Santee, CA. The event held at Carlton Oaks, one of the most challenging courses in San Diego, would be the stage for the 12 and under division but also played host to one of our collegiate events! Though the course played as tough as ever, players did their best to go low on the challenging track and many made this event one to remember. Before we kick off the main event recap we will start things off by reviewing the FCG Memorial Day Collegiate Championship.

Future Champions Golf would like to extend thanks to all staff, volunteers, players, and of course, the parents.
