Of all the wonderful charity golf events held in Mesquite, possibly one of the most anticipated is the annual Golf Fore Kids Tournament. Every year golfers assemble at four local courses and bring toys, bikes, balls, scooters, dolls and art supplies to donate to local children. Trailers are filled to the brim, Santa’s helpers work overtime, and because of the generosity of our local citizens, hundreds of kids will smile a little brighter this Christmas season.

This year marks the 12th Annual Golf Fore Kids Event. As usual, Falcon Ridge, Palms, Canyons, and Conestoga golf courses have graciously donated their course for the day. Golfers will tee off at 9 a.m. then be treated to lunch afterwards at the Casablanca event tent. There will be prizes for closest to the pins, winning teams, and a large raffle that never disappoints.

Hole sponsorships are available for $50 for one course or $150 for all four courses. The individual or company name and any other message requested will be printed on a sign and posted on a tee box for all golfers to see. And like everything else, 100 percent of the funds go directly to the kids. If you wish to sign up for a sponsorship you can do so online by going to www.golfforekidsnv.org or emailing mindee@golffalcon.com

If you wish to donate to the raffle, luncheon or goodie bags (which are given to 550 golfers), please email mindee@golffalcon.com. Anything is appreciated and you will be well recognized for your contribution.

Tee time reservations will only be taken online. If you wish to play in the event, you can sign up by going to www.golfforekidsnv.org. The site opened Oct. 1 and is filling up quickly. So don’t wait too long to reserve your spot. You can make your selection of course, but it is on a first come – first serve basis.

Thank you to all the wonderful people who have made this event a success for a dozen years! Golf Fore Kids has raised over $400,000 in cash and toys for local children in our community. What started as a small tournament at one course has grown into a huge event with 550 golfers, dozens of volunteers, trailers full of toys, and hundreds of happy children. Thank you for your continued generosity and let’s make this the best year ever!
