Grand Pre-Opening Event

Event date: October 30, 2021

Re-Build it, and They Will Come!! 

160 golfers and lunch participants shared the excitement  on October 30, 2021 when the Pusch Ridge Golf Course re-opened for a Friends of Pusch Ridge Golf day of celebration. 

And, what a celebration it was!!  It literally took a village to pull off this anticipated event.

The Board and Advisors of Friends of Pusch Ridge Golf are very grateful and appreciative to all those who helped make this event a success, including:

  • The professional work of the Indigo Golf team, partnered with the Town of Oro Valley, to get the course ready for the opening.

  • Indigo General Manager Bernie Eaton and Head Pro Mark Thesing and their support team who helped players on the day of the event with carts and organizational efforts.

  • 28 event day volunteers who ensured the smooth running of two golf shotgun scrambles and a delicious BBQ lunch – all sold out events!

  • 104 tournament players and 54 lunch only guests.

  • Hilton El Conquistador Resort chefs and catering staff.

  • Generous donations of over 30 Partners and individuals who financially supported or donated raffle prizes and snacks for the event.

  • The Town of Oro Valley’s Mayor, Vice Mayor and Councilmembers Mo Greene and Steve Solomon.

  • Local TV Channels News 4 KVOA and KOLD News 13 for their event day news coverage.

  • Homeowners who live adjacent to the course who provided signs, cheering and coolers of refreshments on the course for the players.

  • The 15 Friends volunteers, joined by the Town or Oro Valley Parks & Rec staff, who cleaned up and re-planted the Cactus Garden in front of the pro shop just days before the re-opening.

So, we helped to re-build it, and they came!!

From the bottoms of our hearts, the FOPRG Board and Advisors thanks everyone who helped make this event a huge success!
