Welcome to the 23rd Annual SJIFT Scholarship Golf Classic!


Are you ready for some fun industry networking?? We are pleased to announce that our 23rd Annual San Joaquin Institute of Food Technologists (SJIFT) Scholarship Golf Tournament will be on Thursday, October 14th, 2021, at the Dragonfly Club in Madera, CA, with a 12:30 PM shotgun start. We have played this course in the past when it went by “Riverbend Golf Course” and it has been operating under new ownership and management as the Dragonfly Golf Club for a few years now. 

Dragonfly is a beautiful links-style course designed by internationally renowned golf course architect, Gary Roger Baird. From the back tees, Dragonfly is the 4th longest course in California. It has a lot of beautiful water features and runs along the San Joaquin River. Dragonfly was voted as the #1 rated course in the Fresno area by the Fresno Business Journal.

Through this event, we have raised $176,187 over the past 22 years to use towards scholarships and other financial 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 a $20,000 cash hole-in-one prize, as well as a Pot-O-Gold Hole, a chipping contest before tee-off, closest to the pins, longest drive and most accurate drive contests! Your entry includes a box lunch, beverages on the course, two beer tickets and a great steak dinner 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 Dragonfly Golf Club on Tuesday, October 14th! 

We will be mindful of all State and Local government Covid guidelines and are hopeful that things will continue to open up as the year progresses. Our dining venue will be open air and the weather should be beautiful that time of year.

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

This creation by internationally renowned golf course designer, Gary Roger Baird, provides a challenging design for any skill level. The course includes large rolling fairways, over 80 sand and waste bunkers, and six water hazards, all surrounded by the beauty of the San Joaquin River habitat and views of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Dragonfly has no houses, no traffic noise, and no parallel fairways, meaning those who come to play or practice will find themselves in one of the most serene settings in all of golf.
