The Green Valley Elks 2592 - Golf Club League in the past has made some significant contributions to promote and help Junior Golf programs and to reward teen golfers.  This year your league has donated $200 to the Chili Pepper Tournament for the promotion of Junior Golf in Southern Arizona.  In addition, at our tournament luncheon we presented a check to Chris Fanning, Athletic Director and Golf Coach, for the Sahuarita High School Golf Program in the amount of $ 750 and to Greg Chesney, Director of Golf at Haven Golf Club, a check for the Green Valley Junior Golf Program in the amount of $ 500.  Also a contribution was sent to the Desert Hills Golf Club in the amount of $ 150 for the Kachina Program.  We do have an another commitment to the Kino Springs Country Club for their program to advance the Junior Golf in the greater Nogales area.


Again, thanks to all the participates, workers, volunteers and to Chef Fred and his crew to make this a very successful golf outing.  Let’s play some great golf the rest of the year and enjoy the courses we will be playing for the balance of the year.
