21st Annual

SJIFT Scholarship 

Golf Classic

San Joaquin Section Color Vertical outlined.jpg

Welcome to the Website for 21st Annual SJIFT Scholarship Golf Classic!

We will be holding our 21st annual San Joaquin Institute of Food Technologists (SJIFT) Scholarship Golf Tournament on Monday October 15th, 2018, at the Copper River Country Club in Fresno, with a 12:00 Noon shotgun start. Since CRCC is a private course, we will have it all to ourselves! Last year, we were practically sold-out, so get your entries in soon. 

Copper River Country Club is one of Fresno’s outstanding private golf clubs nestled against the base of the Sierra Nevada mountain range on the north end of Fresno, California. They have an 18-hole, par 72 championship golf course designed by renowned golf course architect David W. Pfaff, and they do a great job of hosting fund-raising tournaments such as ours. 

Copper River has a first-class clubhouse and the banquet facilities are top-notch. Our tri-tip dinner last year was the best one we ever had.  

We give away great door prizes. Last year, our grand raffle prize was a 58 inch Samsung 4-G TV. 

Through this event, we have raised $152,479 over the past 20 years to use towards scholarships and other financial assistance in support of students in Food Science and related majors at California State University, Fresno. This is the major fund-raiser for the SJIFT. 

Once again, we will have Roger Caldwell from Great Golf Events assist us with the tournament and to add some entertainment fun. We will have a $20,000 cash hole-in-one prize, as well as a Las Vegas Hole, a chipping contest before tee-off, closest to the pins, longest drive and most accurate drive contests, and the Ruiz "No-Wine-ing" hole where lousy players win a nice bottle of Fresno State wine!    

Your entry includes a box lunch, beverages on the course, two beer tickets and a great tri tip dinner and Fresno State Ice Cream after play. We will have plenty of beverages out on the course and there is a full bar at the clubhouse.  

We have player sponsorships available at the “Scholarship”, “Semester”, “Eagle” or “Birdie” level, and we have many different levels of Non-Player Sponsorships to choose from. Sponsorships are the primary source of funds generated at this tournament. Please check out our website for Sponsorship options.  

If your company wants to be the major “Tournament Sponsor”, please call me and we can discuss the details! 

Please see how to sign-up for our VIP package during online registration to buy mulligans and entry into the fund-raising holes.   

Thanks again for your past participation, and we look forward to seeing you at the Copper River Country Club on Monday, October 15th!   

Please also remember to bring a door prize to give out to participants during our after-dinner festivities! 


Sincerely, 


Scott Nichols
