Michigan Non-Profit Offers Golfing Events

Go Fore Golf, a Michigan non-profit organization, believes golf is more than just a game. To spread the word about this philosophy, they presented golf workshops to individuals with cognitive and physical disabilities at Gibraltar Area Schools, Paragon Community Services, and Sunshine House in the end of May.

These workshops were intended to provide an introduction to golf and provide help with equipment alterations. Students learned about equipment, rules, and even took a swing at some golf balls, hopefully in preparation for the upcoming golf scramble.

Go Fore Golf will sponsor a scramble in Door County at Maxwelton Braes Golf Course in Baileys Harbor on June 21. Go Fore Golf has hosted three golf scrambles at Maxwelton Braes in the last three years, and these scrambles are designed to create an environment of fun for challenged individuals, their family, and non-disabled community members. The registration fee for the scramble is $40 per golfer, which includes nine holes of golf (or as many as an individual can play in 3 hours), use of a cart, non-alcoholic beverages on the course, lunch, prizes, and participation gifts. Non-disabled golfers are welcome along with golfers with disabilities. Non-golfers are welcome to enjoy lunch with the group for $15.
