Petco Foundation's 14th annual Thanks Fore Giving

We hope to see everyone once again in sunny San Diego on November 7 and 8, at the historic Omni La Costa Resort and Spa. In addition to the golf activities that take place on the Omni’s Champions and Legends courses, we are again offering the popular Regatta Race activity to sail away with your team on the beautiful San Diego Bay! And, if it’s relaxation you are looking for the spa activity may be right for you.

The Omni La Costa Resort & Spa

The iconic Champions and Legends courses, at the prestigious Omni La Costa Resort & Spa in Carlsbad, California, has been synonymous with the top echelon of golf for more than 41 years. Our Thanks Fore Giving tournament is played on one of the country’s most storied and challenging courses that has hosted 37 PGA events, and is used exclusively by The Petco Foundation and its tournament participants.

Regatta Racing in the San Diego Bay

Hosted at the San Diego Sheraton Hotel and Marina, this Regatta is designed for everyone, sailors and non-sailors alike. Previous sailing experience is not required and physical condition is never an issue. It’s about teamwork and a desire to win!
