Annual Kelly Freitas Memorial Golf Tournament approaching

Kelly Marie Freitas

San Juan Oaks Golf Club will host the fourth annual Kelly Freitas Memorial Golf Tournament and Dinner Party on July 11 at 3825 Union Road in Hollister.
The event begins with a rockin’ on the range check-in at 10:30 a.m. followed by a shotgun start at noon. A barbecue lunch will be provided to all players, along with plenty of on-course contests—including the famous “High Heel Hole” on No. 10. All players must tee off wearing a pair of high heels. This hole represents Kelly’s love for heels.
Players are also encouraged to wear their best get ups because there will be a “best dressed award” for the person most uniquely dressed.
At the conclusion of the golf tournament, a dinner and dance party will take place, including music by local band, 420 Hudson Street.
Golf fees are $150 per player and tickets to the dinner are $45 per person. Entry fees can be paid at San Juan Oaks Golf Course and registration forms are located at or at

The Kelly Freitas Memorial was created in memory of San Juan Oaks Golf Clubs Director of Golf Manny Freitas’ wife Kelly, who passed away in 2010 from an aggressive form of breast cancer. Since her passing, Manny helped create the Kelly Freitas Memorial Scholarship though a endowment fund at the Community Foundation for San Benito County. The Kelly Freitas scholarship is unique in that it is a four-year scholarship and that it goes to a very deserving local student living in San Benito County looking to further his or her education beyond high school. The scholarship board mentors the winner for the journey through college by helping them achieve education and life goals.
