Forecasts of rain haven't dampened plans for the reopening Sunday of Aliso Creek Golf Course, closed since December when flooding inundated the fairways.
Aliso Creek Inn General Manager Kurt Bjorkman said Tuesday that no decision will be made until Saturday to delay the Sunday re-opening, which will be a benefit for the survivors of the disastrous winter rainstorms. All golf proceeds on Sunday will be donated to the Laguna Relief and Resource Center, which is coordinating assistance to the flood survivors.
"We are selling Tee Box sponsorships for $100 a hole," said insurance broker John Campbell, who is spearheading the benefit reopening with his wife, Lu.
"As of [Monday], we have sold 23 sponsorships. We will be selling closest-to-the-pin tickets at the course on Sunday. It will cost $5 to enter, and the winner will get $50 and a free round of golf at Aliso."
Donations will also be accepted.
