What’s happening in the golf world in Eastern Plumas

Sierra School Foundation Golf Tournament
The Sierra Schools Foundation will be hosting its annual “Swinging for the Schools” golf tournament fundraiser on Oct. 1. The event takes place at the Plumas Pines Golf Resort followed by a BBQ steak dinner and a “unique” silent auction and prize opportunity.
World fly-fisher and guide, Jack Trout, is requesting that any former alumni from any schools in Plumas County consider coming back and donating or helping out the Sierra School Foundation in anyway they can. “Kids more than ever need inspiration, mentors, hobbies & history,” said Trout. “Those of us who have become successful through the education we received as a kid in Plumas Schools can now come back and pass the torch on. Together, we can easily make this event a success for the kids, it feels great.”
