All Turkeys (frozen) and Toys (new unopened) must be dropped off prior to reaching the golf course property. Artichoke Festival Volunteers will be available to take your donations at a marked location enroute to the golf course. We can provide your Mulligan’s at this point of contact.


• Absolutely no gathering/loitering anywhere on the property before or after a round. • Players must maintain at least six-foot distance from other people (except for household members) while on property. • Only one (1) person per cart will be allowed; two (2) persons from one household may share a cart. • Players are required to leave the property as soon as possible after completing their round and verifying scores with the scoring official. • No touching of flagsticks. • Bunker rakes have been removed from the course. Preferred lies will be played in the bunkers. • No ball washers are available on the course.

Laguna Seca Golf Ranch, located at 10520 York Road, Monterey, CA 93940, is managing players’ check-in, scoring, and scheduling of tee-times. Because we will not have a registration table set-up on the day of the tournament, all players must be checked-in in advance. Please be sure we have at least one contact phone or email for you or your foursome so that they can let you know when your tee-time is scheduled.


Get your foursome together and together we can make this a successful event. The above information can also be found on our website at https://artichokefestival.org/events/charity-golf-tournament/, where you can also register online, for your convenience.
