Las Vegas, Nevada (February 28, 2013)--Cascata is about as good as it gets for the Las Vegas Golf Region. Golfers cherish the opportunity to tee it up at this Top 100 golf courses which has earned 29 out of 30 points from the prestigious ZAGAT survey. And now the annual benefit golf tournament for the Coronado High School football program is scheduled at the course on June 24, 2013. Head Coach Brad Talich, along with several assistant coaches who played in the NFL, led Coronado to the best season in school history in 2012, and all proceeds from this Las Vegas golf tournament will help stengthen the future of the program. --By Brian Hurlburt
"Last year we went 10-3 and made it to the state of Nevada semi-final game, and that is the best showing by any football team in the history of Coronado," says Talich, who was in his first year in 2012. "From day one of spring practice, we started to instill an overall team philosophy of hard work, and the kids put that philosophy to good use throughout the year and were rewarded for it. And already this spring we see the kids in Coronado community buying into our system and philosophy even more, and we have high expectations again for the coming season. The future of the Coronado football program is very bright and this golf event will help us continue to be successful, and we thank our sponsors and golfers in advance for the support."
Cascata was once called "Golf's Hidden Treasure" by Sports Illustrated, and has hosted events surrounding Tiger Jam (Tiger Woods' annual fundraiser), and it is also a home of the Butch Harmon School of Golf in Las Vegas. The course is owned and operated by Caesars Entertainment. Celebrities and Tour pros play the course on a regular basis. Click now for the official photo gallery of Cascata.
