Quincy High Inaugural

Plumas Pines Golf Course in Blairsden will be the site for the first annual Quincy High School Booster Club Golf Fundraiser on Saturday, Oct. 17. That’s right! A high school sports event, well, sort of. QHS staff, coaches, alumni, STUDENTS, and friends of Quincy athletics will gather on the golf course for a day of “fun and camaraderie.” The price for golf is $100 per person and includes tournament entry, driving range balls, contest holes, and lunch at the turn. There are numerous tournament sponsorships available to help offset the costs of the golf tournament. To participate, donate or ask questions, contact QHS Athletic Director Jason Hawkins (805) 280-2658 or email [email protected].
