The second-ever iteration of The Nordeck Charity Golf Tournament is scheduled for July 15 at Arroyo Trabuco Golf Club, 2677 Avery Parkway, in Mission Viejo.
The event is named for San Juan Capistrano icon and former Swallow’s Inn owner Steve Nordeck, who owned the popular local bar up until his death in June 2018 from cancer at the age of 76. Proceeds from the tournament will go toward the Swallows Inn Foundation, which was started by Nordeck and is also organizing the event.
The nonprofit has provided assistance to many local organizations, including the J.F. Shea Center for Therapeutic Riding, San Juan Capistrano Equestrian Coalition, 11th Marines, Boys and Girls Clubs of Capistrano Valley, the San Juan Capistrano Historical Society and the Open Space Foundation, according to a news release.
The inaugural Nordeck Charity Golf Tournament in 2019 attracted more than 100 local golfers and brought in roughly $8,000 that went toward charitable efforts.
“We hope you can join us to enjoy this great event and to celebrate the profound and long-lasting impact Steve had on us personally, and for the influence he had on our community,” the Swallows Inn Foundation said in a news release.
Various hole sponsorships are available, ranging from gold at $1,500 to platinum at $300, with other price levels in between. For more information, call 949.922.8704, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit the Facebook page for The Nordeck Golf Tournament.
