2011 Golf and Tennis Tournaments

June 29, 2011 A DGA Foundation Event

On June 20, 2011, 139 golfers and 43 tennis players took part in the Fifteenth Annual Howard W. Koch Memorial DGA Foundation Golf Tournament, and the Eighth Annual DGA Foundation Tennis Tournament. Both events were fundraisers created to benefit the Directors Guild Foundation (DGF), a non-profit organization dedicated to assisting DGA members facing difficult times.

The golf tournament - renamed in 2001 in honor of former DGF Chair Howard W. Koch - and the awards reception were held at the Wilshire Country Club, which was founded in 1919 and has hosted many great tournaments and groups such as the LA Open, the Senior PGA and the LPGA. The tennis tournament took place right around the corner at the Los Angeles Tennis Club, home of champions since 1921.

DGF First Vice Chairman/DGA Past President Gene Reynolds thanked all the players for their participation and announced that due to their generosity, more than $50,000 had been raised on behalf of the Foundation. He turned the podium over to golf tournament co-chair Michael Zinberg, and tennis tournament co-chairs Howard Storm and Gil Cates Jr, who thanked all the supporters of the tournaments including: DGA National Executive Director Jay D. Roth; the Wilshire Country Club and Los Angeles Tennis Club; the USTA's Annette Buck who served as the tennis tournament's director; and the tournaments' gold, silver and bronze sponsors, before proceeding to hand out the raffle prizes and announce the winners of the golf and tennis tournaments.
