You are cordially invited to join us for our 10th Annual Swing for Autism Golf Tournament and Dinner Celebration to be held Monday, October 26, 2020 at the Coto de Caza Golf & Racquet Club. Over the past 10 years, this Event has benefitted New Vista School, raising nearly $825,000 to fund valuable school programs for children with autism. In 2016, New Vista School partnered with Spirit League, a sports league for special needs athletes, as co-host of the Event. Proceeds will benefit both nonprofit organizations again in 2020!

Stay for the Celebration & Silent Auction
Enjoy cocktails, appetizers, dinner, amazing desserts and the awards ceremony. What a great way to finish your day relaxing with friends and supporting two great causes!
As of July 2020, The Golf & Racquet Club is not allowing shotgun starts so each foursome would have their own tee time with staggered arrival times. We hope that this requirement will change in the coming weeks. As such, the following schedule is based on a shotgun start.
8:00am – Registration opens, putting contest and warm-up
10:00am – Tee-off
3:30pm – Appetizers, and silent auction begins
4:15pm – Helicopter Golf Ball Drop
5:00pm – Buffet dinner, silent auction and awards presentation
6:30pm – Conclusion
Helicopter Ball Drop
Join us for the exciting “Heli-drop.” During the cocktail hour, a helicopter will pick up golf balls numbered from 1 to 1200 then drop them over the green. The first three golf balls into the hole will win cash prizes.
- First ball in hole: $ 1,000
- Second ball in hole: $ 500
- Third ball in hole: $ 250
The winners will be announced at the dinner celebration following golf activities. Winner need not be present to win.” – then put button to purchase heli-drop balls that takes them to registration page.
