Champions Tour’s Toshiba Classic

Toshiba Classic

The Champions Tour traveled to Newport Beach, California for the Toshiba Classic at Newport Beach Country Club in March. The event is well supported by all the surrounding areas and the tournament gives generously to charity each year.  The golf course has undulating greens that take some experience to read as the ocean has an affect on the ball. Uphill putts towards the ocean are just as quick as downhill putts away from the ocean. This takes some time to get a feel for and presents a challenge. The course is a good layout with a mix of par 4′s that give players options off the tee with good risk reward. The par 5′s are reachable for long hitters but tricky around the greens, and the par 3′s have character and length. This is a good test of golf that is fun to play and provides excitement for the fans.  Toshiba is a great sponsor and the tournament is well run and fun to be a part of.

Solar Powered Score Board

This  year at the Toshiba Classic, Firm Green supplied solar powered score boards and golf carts as well as two renewable natural gas powered vehicles for the event. Firm Green also assisted in transporting e-waste generated by the event and supplied bio-diesel to the on site power generator for the event. Way to go Firm Green and the Champions Tour for making strides in the direction of eco-friendly golf tournaments! Read more about Firm Green’s efforts at the Toshiba Classic.
