On Friday, May 18, about 80 members of the Fresh Produce & Floral Council enjoyed perfect weather and fabulous views as they worked their way around the course at Wente Vineyards. Designed by golfing great Greg Norman, the 18-hole championship course is a picturesque 7,181-yard, par-72 golf course tucked away in the scenic Livermore Valley, 50 minutes east of San Francisco. The FPFC group concluded the tournament with an awards ceremony and social gathering.
