New Meaning to Birdies on the Golf Course
10th Annual Swingin’ Safari at El Macero Country Club on May 23rd 

During the 10th Annual Swingin’ Safari Golf Tournament, feathered friends from the Sacramento Zoo will observe golfers as they strive to score a birdie. The Sacramento Zoological Society will host the Swingin' Safari Golf Tournament on Monday, May 23rd at El Macero Country Club in Davis. Open to all skill levels, this benefit golf tournament raises funds for the Zoo’s educational programs that reach students of all ages with on-site programming and community outreach.

Beginning at 11:30 am, the day includes lunch followed by a unique putting contest only the Zoo can offer. Have you ever had to putt past a pink flamingo or under the watchful eye of a Harris’s hawk accompanied by the call of a Blue and gold macaw?  These are the challenges you'll face at the Swingin’ Safari Golf Tournament, sponsored by Nacht & Lewis Architects since the tournament began in 2001.

After the putting contest, tee off with an 18-hole scramble on El Macero’s beautiful private course.  End the evening with a dinner, raffle prizes and awards ceremony. KOVR’s Sam Shane will hand out Sacramento’s most unique golf trophies – ostrich eggs with hand-drawn images. Foursome sponsorships and limited single player spots are still available.
