On June 22-24 and under beautiful coastal skies, Joey Harrington and the Harrington Family Foundation hosted the second annual Battle at Bandon golf tournament, which took place at the #1 Golf Resort in North America according to Golf Digest, Bandon Dunes. The tournament assembled twenty-four PAC-12 football and basketball legends to compete on behalf of their alma maters and to raise money in support of charitable organizations benefiting Oregon’s children.
This year’s Battle at Bandon slated twelve teams of storied collegiate athletes against one another in nine-hole match play. This year’s event included two Super Bowl Champions (NFL), two NBA champions, two Pac-12 Offensive Players of the Year, a Doak Walker award winner (nation’s top running back), an Outland Trophy winner (nation’s best interior lineman), an AFC Offensive Player of the Year (NFL), an NBA lottery pick and the greatest pure shooter the NBA has ever known. The University of Oregon team of Joey Harrington and Justin Peelle tied with the University of Utah team of Michael Doleac and Wes Mallard for first place honors.
The event not only created an exciting environment for PAC-12 celebrity competition, but more importantly the Harrington Family Foundation achieved its institutional goal of raising $25,000. These funds will be devoted to children’s programs administered by charities throughout the state. Battle at Bandon 2012 will be televised as an hour-long special this month on Comcast Sports Net (CSN) where you can tune in to watch PAC-12 competition in this uniquely-designed golfing format and learn more about the sponsors’ and Harrington Family Foundation’s charitable activities.
Bandon Dunes Golf Resort is true to the spirit of Scotland’s ancient links and located along Oregon’s southwestern scenic landscape. It offers four distinctly constructed courses built on a beautiful stretch of sand dunes perched 100 feet above the Pacific Ocean and overlooking 23 miles of sweeping, undisturbed shoreline.
