During the 13th 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 12th 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 people of all ages with onsite 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 live boa constrictor and tenrec or under the watchful eye of a Harris’ Hawk accompanied by the call of a Blue and Gold Macaw? 

After the putting contest, tee off with an 18-hole scramble on El Macero’s beautiful private course. End the evening with dinner, raffle prizes and awards ceremony. Hosted drinks will also be available throughout the day. KOVR’s Sam Shane will present Sacramento’s most unique golf trophies – ostrich eggs with hand-drawn images of a Snow Leopard. Prizes are given for closest to the pin, longest drive and the putting contest. There will also be a hole-in-one contest sponsored by Niello. Foursome sponsorships and limited single player spots are still available.
