72 Holes to Make a Difference
Please help us Impact and Save Lives Through Golf
A field of up to 20 teams of two area PGA Professionals and amateur golfers will play 72 holes of golf with hopes of generating $100,000 or more through people’s and companies’ pledged donations. Donations will generally be based on the number of birdies and eagles produced by each team. This is our inaugural event. It is designed to be a community game-changer for everyone involved. Individual pledges and local business support is needed. Please help make New Mexico a stand out among other PGA of America Sections!
All funds raised will be split between the Sun Country Golf Foundation and UNM Children's Hospital. We'll have food, drinks, prizes, and fans from both organizations there to cheer you on.
The Sun Country Golf Foundation is operated in partnership by the Sun Country PGA Section and Sun Country Amateur Golf Association. The Foundation's goal is to "Impact Lives Through Golf" within three Pillars of Impact: Youth, Military, & Inclusion. We operate junior golf programs, offer college scholarships, break down the barrier of price for children to learn and play golf, offer U.S. Military active duty and Veterans golf as a rehabilitative tool, and eventually hope to fund a Fellowship program to support people of underrepresented demographics in golf.
Building Healthier Futures
UNM Children’s Hospital (UNMCH) is New Mexico’s only dedicated children’s hospital, providing services to over 85,000 families annually. With the state’s only level 1 trauma and burn centers, Level IV Neonatal Intensive Care unit and pediatric inpatient rehabilitation unit, UNM Children’s Hospital is a critical resource for kids’ healthcare in New Mexico and surrounding states. Donations from Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals’ partners provide special programs like Child Life, life-saving equipment, and much-needed supplies to provide the best possible care for our state’s tiniest patients.
Please consider donating to our participating teams. You can choose to pledge a certain amount of dollars for every birdie a team makes, or donate a flat amount to any team! No matter how much you donate, your donation will have a positive impact on lives in the region!
