Excitement begins for 11th Annual Golf Fore Kids

We are so excited about the upcoming 11th Annual Golf Fore Kids!  The community support for this event has been astounding, and we thank everyone who has participated and donated over the years to make this tournament possible.  Golf Fore Kids has helped bring Christmas gifts to hundreds of children each year and has raised approximately $380,000 in cash and toys over the past 10 years.  We hope to make this year our biggest event yet!

The Golf Fore Kids event started in 2005 with just a few volunteers, one generously donated golf course, and 144 golfers bringing toys as their green fee.  Over the years, this tournament has expanded and become a Mesquite tradition, as well as a staple for the local communities.  This year we have dozens of volunteers, four golf courses, and we’re looking for business sponsors and over 500 golfers.  We hope to provide between $40,000-$50,000 worth of toys to local children for Christmas!

Golf Fore Kids is a program that combines the excitement of golf with the joy of giving.  What makes this tournament unique is that everything is donated: the golf courses, the luncheon facility, the food, the tee gifts, and the raffle prizes.  For the small fee of a $50 new toy, golfers get to enjoy 18 holes on one of four famous Mesquite golf courses.  After the round, lunch is provided so golfers can mingle and see all the donated gifts on display.  The endless line of toys and bikes is quite a sight to behold.

With help from the Salvation Army Angel Tree program, Mesquite’s Fire and Police departments, and many community volunteers, all the toys are distributed to less fortunate families in Mesquite, Beaver Dam and Moapa Valley.  This year we hope to help provide Christmas for over 800 children.  That is 800 kids (and lots of parents) who will be smiling Christmas morning!

Come and join what thousands of golfers have experienced in the 11th Annual Golf Fore Kids tournament, you won’t be disappointed.
