Go the distance with us!
It’s a marathon and we will not stop until we’ve removed all roadblocks to growing the great game of golf with Wichita youth. Our Juniors Play fore FREE!, the initiative has been an unqualified success in 2019 and 2020, raising more than $50,000 (every penny went to underwrite greens fees for area juniors). Consequently, junior golf rounds at Wichita golf courses have almost tripled over the past two summers. Thank you!
We need your donations to make 2021 just as successful and continue to provide free access to golf for kids from all demographics and all economic backgrounds! Through your generous support, golf is completely FREE to all Wichita youth at all Wichita public golf facilities.
Our goal is to raise $25,000 to provide free golf in 2021. Please visit our website today to learn more and please give generously. If you are unable to give at this time we understand. You can still help us by spreading the news—GOLF IS FREE FOR ALL WICHITA YOUTH IN 2021!

We’ve all heard it before—golf is a dying sport. A lifelong game that teaches patience, honesty, etiquette, and camaraderie is slowly declining. Video games and apps are beating out a sport that provides fresh air and exercise to young girls and boys in a relaxing environment. Most importantly, the rising cost of green fees makes it difficult to offer this game to younger generations.
But, what if green fees didn’t exist for junior golfers? What if every junior golfer in Wichita could access any public course for free? A group of friends who know the positive impact golf can have on younger generations intend to make this happen
All funds raised from the marathon will cover green fees for all Wichita-area junior golfers at Sim Park, MacDonald Park, Tex Consolver, and Auburn Hills. Junior golfers should be able to play the game they love, free of charge. It’s as simple as that.
Please consider a tax-deductible donation to this cause of any amount. All funds raised will benefit the junior golfers in the Wichita, KS area.
