Golf Marathon for FREE GOLF for Juniors Brought to you By First Tee Greater Wichita

Second Annual Golf Marathon supporting Free Golf for Wichita-area junior golfers. Preview

In 2019 we played a lot of golf for the junior golfers in Wichita. We reached our goal of $20,000 funds raised to pay for the junior rounds played. More importantly, we also almost doubled the rounds played by juniors at all courses in Wichita. 2019 was a HUGE success for junior golf and growing the game. Let us make our second annual fundraiser a success as well. Please donate, please share, please get your kids out on the golf course!

We’ve all heard it before—golf is a dying sport. A lifelong game that teaches patience, honesty, etiquette, and camaraderie is slowly declining. Video games and apps are beating out a sport that provides fresh air and exercise to young girls and boys in a relaxing environment. Most importantly, the rising cost of green fees makes it difficult to offer this game to younger generations.

But, what if green fees didn’t exist for junior golfers? What if every junior golfer in Wichita could access any public course for free? A group of friends who know the positive impact golf can have for younger generations intend to make this happen.

On Friday, July 17th, at MacDonald Golf Park, the Friends First Tee Greater Wichita will host its Second Annual Golf Marathon. Volunteer golfers will play from sun up until sundown, attempting to finish a minimum of 100 holes. Golfers will raise pledges from friends, families, and businesses to ultimately help the Friends of The First Tee of Wichita reach its goal of $25,000.

All funds raised from the marathon will cover green fees for all Wichita-area junior golfers at Sim Park, MacDonald Park, Tex Consolver, and Auburn Hills. Junior golfers should be able to play the game they love, free of charge. It’s as simple as that.

Please consider a tax-deductible donation to this cause of any amount. All funds raised will benefit the junior golfers in the Wichita, KS area.
