Carlsbad Golf Center

FACE Foundation’s annual golf tournament benefiting San Diego pets in need of life-saving veterinary care is coming soon!

Special thanks to Carlsbad Golf Center for sponsoring FACE Foundation’s 4th Invitational Golf Tournament! Carlsbad Golf Center is a long-time supporter of FACE, and we thank them for their generosity and continued participation in our events.


There’s still time to register for the tournament, which will be held on Monday, November 2, 2015 at the Lomas Santa Fe Country Club.

Don’t forget to practice your swing at Carlsbad Golf Center before you head out!

Thanks to all of our generous participants and sponsors for helping beloved family pets (like Nino!) in need of critical veterinary care.



Get Ready to Tee Off to Help San Diego Pets!


It’s a picture-perfect fall day in San Diego, and you can’t decide between taking your dog for a nice long walk and playing a round of golf. No problem, FACE has got you covered. You can do both at our 4th Annual Dog-Friendly Golf Tournament, to benefit San Diego pets in need of life-saving veterinary care!


Mark your calendars for Monday, November 2, 2015 and join us at the beautiful Lomas Santa Fe Country Club where golfers and their canine friends can enjoy a round of golf for a great cause. We will be joined by two special VIP guests, baseball legend Fred Lynn and PGA major tour winner Corey Pavin, a friend of FACE since our inception in 2006!


The theme of this year’s tournament will be honoring our country’s service men, women, and dogs! San Diego is home to many military members and their families. FACE has helped over 100 military families and veterans in need of financial assistance to provide their beloved pets with critical veterinary care. Join one of our military success stories, a veteran grantee and his dog Myles at this year’s tournament.


Player check-in is at 11:30 a.m. and the fun begins at 12:15 p.m. Be sure to stick around and join us at 4:30 p.m. for cocktails, dinner, an awards ceremony, and exciting silent auction. You can also purchase tickets for our Dream Ticket drawing…and win a round of golf at a variety of prestigious courses.


Player registration is $500 and includes tournament entry for you and one dog, plus dinner for you and one guest. Additional dinner guests can join us for $50. Food and beverages will be provided for players on the course during the tournament.


All proceeds help sick or injured pets and their families during a time of need.

Check out our website to register, become a sponsor, and enjoy a sneak peek at some seriously great auction prizes!
