Golfers take part in annual Golf Classic presented by Wells Fargo

SAN DIEGO – The near record-breaking heat on Monday did not deter a sold out field of golfers from taking to the links to help the Holiday Bowl’s cause. The annual Golf Classic presented by Wells Fargo took place on the championship golf course at The Country Club of Rancho Bernardo. The event served as a fundraiser for the nonprofit Holiday Bowl. IMG_4862
