Golf Tournament: The 2018 Spring ACBO Conference Golf Tournament is scheduled for Sunday, May 20, 2018 at the Windsor Golf Club in Sonoma County, CA. Join us! We plan for yet another outstanding tournament. Whether you’ve participated before or this is your first experience, you will not be disappointed.

Windsor's par 72 championship course has played host to several PGA Nike Tour events, giving the course a unique cachet that lets golfers follow in the footsteps of the pros. A challenging layout traverses a year‐round creek, lakes and oak trees, all open to a sprawling sky that has witnessed golfers shake their fists in both jubilation and dejection at this never routine 6,650‐yard course. For more information, visit their website.

The tournament will begin at 1:00 p.m. and will be preceded by a boxed lunch. The day will conclude with a reception, dinner and awards. The cost this year is just $75.00 for ACBO members and $115.00 for vendors and includes
lunch, dinner, awards, range balls, green fees and carts.
The company and good times you will have are free! The format will be a modified scramble with a scheduled tee time start. You must be a sponsor of the spring conference to participate in the golf tournament.
