May 25, 2017 – The Village Greens of Woodridge Men’s Club presented Brandon Evans, General Manager of Village Greens, with a $1,000 donation earmarked for PGA Junior Golf initiatives at the golf course.
“We recognize the importance of junior golf in our community, and we’re proud to make this donation as we’ve done every year for nearly two decades” states Rich Goldsmith, Vice President of the Men’s Club. “Each of our 100 plus members are proud to contribute to the programs at Village Greens that teach our youth the values and life skills that the game of golf provides. The Men’s Club has been around for almost 60 years, and to insure its continued success, we need to develop the next generation of golfers and potential members,” said Goldsmith.
Village Greens of Woodridge runs a number of youth golf programs, including 1000 1st Swings, which offers youth a free introduction to the game of golf. The course also participates in PGA Junior Golf League and fields five teams that compete throughout the region. Additionally, the golf course staff volunteers their time to teach special needs golfers through programs like SEASPAR and Sunshine Through Golf Foundation.
“Golf is a game that everyone can enjoy, and we aim to provide as many opportunities for youth in our area to learn the game”, says Brandon Evans, General Manager of Village Greens. “This donation from the Men’s Club makes it possible to positively affect the lives of hundreds of kids in Woodridge and neighboring towns. We are grateful for their generosity and support of our efforts”, says Evans.
