Golf Scores High for Local Charities
Local links are chock full of charity golf outings to hit the mark for many good causes!
Does your favorite golfer have a birthday coming up? What about Mother’s Day or Father’s Day? Consider giving the gift of a charity golf outing for any special occasion or the holidays! (Think ahead! Most outings are scheduled at the same time next year.)
If your organization is planning a charity golf outing that you’d like us to post below, please send the date with all the particulars to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Note: To help golfers plan for the entire season, we’ve kept local golf outings benefiting local nonprofit organizations posted in the months that groups have traditionally held their events. You’ll see some still are marked (??? Details coming soon…) to be determined for the 2017 season. We welcome info for the 2018 season.
