The first Hardwood to the Green fundraiser for Rocklin High School boys’ basketball will be held at Sunset Whitney Country Club, June 30. Help keep the Thunder playing in style while playing gold in style and historic Sunset Whitney CC.

Play continues through the green with only one score recorded for the team on each hole. The cost is $115 and includes green fees, cart fee, gift bag, awards, luncheon and dinner. There will be awards for the top three teams, longest drive, closest to the pin. Mulligans are $10; the $25-per-player mulligan package includes five, hole-in-one contest holes with prizes ranging from a new car, premium golf equipment, electronics package, and one mulligan. Raffle tickets are five for $10, 50 for $30. Post-tournament dinner tickets are $25 each for those who wish to participate without playing golf. Registration/raffle begins at noon, and range opens for practice. A putting contest and lunch begins at 12:30, and the shotgun start is scheduled for 1:30. Dinner and the post-tournament festivities have been tentatively set for 6:30. Sponsorships are open and run from $1,500 (dinner sponsor), to $800 (golf ball sponsor) and include extras like a foursome in the tournament, program ad, luncheon headline sponsor, banner in the Thunder gym, hole signage, etc., depending on level of sponsorship.
