Maranatha Christian Schools of San Diego has a special once-in-a- lifetime opportunity to play golf with the Golden Bear himself, Jack Nicklaus. Through his contacts while coaching baseball in Florida, Special Projects Director, Mike Lord, has been able to secure a private round of golf for three people with Jack Nicklaus, on one of golf’s most prestigious and exclusive courses, The Bear’s Club, in Jupiter, Fla.

“One of my dearest friends, whom I met through the baseball community while living in Florida, is one of Jack’s tennis buddies and longtime friend. Recently, I called him and explained what we were trying to do with regards to our vision of making significant upgrades to our athletic facilities at Maranatha. He asked Jack about this fundraising opportunity, and Nicklaus responded with enthusiasm,” explained Mike. Some highlights of the event that will be photographed and videoed include:

-First Class Airfare for three to Palm Beach, FL

-Day 1: A practice round on Jack’s private course, The Bear’s Club

-Day 2: A private foursome round of golf with Jack Nicklaus

-Private lunch with Jack

-Bear’s Club Bungalows or Ritz Carlton accommodations

This is an exclusive fundraiser for Maranatha Christian Schools athletic facility development which will be available for local community use. A portion of the proceeds also benefit the Nicklaus Children’s Health Care Foundation. For more detailed information see the full article at Contact Mike Lord at 619-277-5423 or email him at
