Nearly 70 athletes took part May 3 in the golf portion of the Southern California Special Olympics Inland Empire Games at the North Golf Course in the Sun City community of Menifee.
The total was 29 more athletes than the competition included last year at the same course. Golfers ranged in age from 12-55 and came from San Diego, Temecula, Norwalk, Santa Clarita, Lakewood, San Gabriel and San Bernardino.
This golf event has received rave reviews found the athletes, coaches, families and Special Olympics Southern California Regional Directors.
All of this would not have been possible if it was not for the 39 club members, who volunteered their time, along with North Golf Course Staff, said Jim Bertrand, chairman of the Special Olympic Games golf competition.
