Monterey’s Golf ‘n’ Jazz Tournament Hits Pebble Beach Sept. 17

Clint Eastwood

Insert golf-related “swing” pun here: On Thursday, Sept. 17, the Links at Spanish Bay in Pebble Beach Golf Resort will host the 11th-annual Golf ‘n’ Jazz Tournament. Produced by the Monterey Jazz Festival, which begins the following day and runs through Sept. 20, the event benefits students in Monterey’s jazz education programs. (Those programs include the MJF Summer Jazz Camp, Next Generation Festival, MJF Instrument Bank and more.)

Golf ‘n’ Jazz is co-chaired by MJF board members Michael Fields and Clint Eastwood and registration begins at 7 a.m. The tournament entry fee is $395 per person and includes a round of golf with cart, golf awards ceremony, a gift bag, a silent auction, a lunch buffet and a live set by pianist Marshall Otwell and his trio, featuring heavies Bobby Hutcherson, Conrad Herwig and Joe Lovano.

I know, I know: The Links at Spanish Bay isn’t quite Pebble Beach Golf Links, but for jazz lovers with a little scratch, this sounds like a fun way to show support. Info and links are below:
