FRIENDS OF GOLF (FOG):
Originally founded in 1979, FOG has donated over $10 million to both national and Southern California college, high school and non-profit golf-focused organizations. FOG supports student athlete golfers by instilling the values of honesty, ethics, and fellowship with a true appreciation for the game. From the time boys and girls enter grade school through the end of their college experience, FOG makes it possible for aspiring junior golfers (irrespective of economic standing) to play, compete and excel in this exceptional sport.
G/FORE is the golf-inspired sportswear and accessories brand created and designed by veteran fashion innovator Mossimo Giannulli, who for many years has been a supporter of junior golfers and FOG’s Mission. G/FORE was conceptualized with a passion for modern design combined with a love of golf. Inspired by art, architecture, and high fashion, G/FORE is distinguished by our attention to detail, sophisticated ease, whimsical nature, and youthful energy. We consistently strive to make a powerful and colorful impact on our favorite game. Our intent is to disrupt the industry while honoring the sport and its rich traditions.
CIF CITY SECTION:
The California Interscholastic Federation-Southern Section (CIF-SS) is the governing body for high school athletics in most of Southern California and is the largest of the ten sections that comprise the California Interscholastic Federation (CIF). Its membership includes most public and private high schools in Orange, Los Angeles, Riverside, San Bernardino, Ventura, Santa Barbara, Kern and San Luis Obispo counties. Teams from the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) and surrounding areas have competed in the CIF Los Angeles City Section since 1935. CIFSS’s offices are in Los Alamitos. Founded in 1913, the CIF Southern Section includes over 560-member public and private high schools and is by far the largest CIF section. Three of the ten CIF sections are individual current or former public-school districts (Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Oakland). The Southern Section’s membership includes all private schools located within the service area of the LAUSD, which includes almost all the city of Los Angeles plus some adjacent areas outside the city limits. If the CIF Southern Section were a state association, it would be the 10th largest in the United States. The CIF-SS governs 37 varsity sports. There are 630 golf programs in the CIF-SS – 348 boys’ teams and 282 girls.
