    Dragonfly is a beautiful links-style course designed by internationally renowned golf course architect, Gary Roger Baird. From the back tees, Dragonfly is the 4th longest course in California. It has a lot of beautiful water features and runs along the San Joaquin River. Dragonfly was voted as the #1 rated course in the Fresno area by the Fresno Business Journal.
    Through this event, we have raised over $202,000 in the past 25 years to use towards scholarships and other financial support of students in Food Science and related majors at California State University, Fresno. This is the major fund-raiser for the SJIFT. We thank you for your continued participation and support and we look forward to seeing you at the Dragonfly Golf Club on Thursday October 10th!
