BUYER BEWARE…..there are several housing agencies that promote themselves to exhibitors and attendees as an official contractor with RAA. They solicit companies for rooms that are outside of our official housing block. Companies have experienced major problems with these firms in the past regarding confirmation of rooms and deposits, so please note that any solicitation will come directly from an email address. Please know that RAA Show Management does NOT provide your contact information to anyone other than our official show contractors. RAA is not responsible for any reservations made with any other firm.


Golf with RAA at Coyote Hills


Coyote Hills Golf Course is an award-winning 18-hole, par 70 golf course that features five distinct tees and panoramic views of Los Angeles and Orange County. Enjoy an outstanding golf experience at one of Southern California’s best golf courses designed by Payne Stewart -

Located in Fullerton, CA you’ll have the option to take the provided bus transportation the 40 minutes to and from the course and enjoy the fellowship of fellow golfers before you arrive at Coyote Hills. 


Have a particular group of golfers you’d like to play with on September 23?  This year RAA is offering you the opportunity to build your own foursome!  When you register online, you’ll provide the names, their email addresses, and pay for the team in a single process. 

If you elect to build your team, you as the requestor MUST clear the foursome (or playing partners, no matter how many) with the other players prior to submitting the request.  Foursome requests are subject to all members of a foursome being registered for the RAA Convention and the registration remains on a first-come, first-served basis.

Golfers who do not choose to submit a foursome request will be randomly assigned.

With the new policy allowing you to create your own foursome, there will be none of the traditional prizes for the top three foursomes, as handicaps may be skewed. There will still be Raffle prizes, adding to the festivities during the reception. As usual, Raffle proceeds go to benefit the RAA Scholarship Fund.

We appreciate and encourage you to provide items for the Goodie Bags that will be given to each player, as well as donations for the Raffle (e.g., logo items, clubs, etc.). The day will be about relaxing and having a great golf experience, but a main goal remains -  benefiting those who want to enter the Aviation Industry through the scholarship program.

We look forward to seeing you on the course!
