Joey Harrington and the Harrington Family Foundation hosted the third 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 benefitting 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 Battle at Bandon also included the Safeway Skills Challenge, offering a long drive, over the wall, long put and KP competition. After an amazing day of play on Saturday, participants also competed in the third annual horse race. That Battle at Bandon Horse Race is match play in the extreme, one player is eliminated per hole until only one player is left, fun to play and watch!

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 $70,000. These funds will be devoted to children’s programs administered by charities throughout the state. Battle at Bandon 2013 will be televised as an hour-long special this month on Comcast SportsNet (CSN) where you can tune in to watch PAC-12 competition in this uniquely-designed golfing format and learn more also about the sponsors’ and Harrington Family Foundation’s charitable activities.
