Missoula Junior Golf Fundraiser


Todd gave me permission to post a quick update on the Grip it and Rip it Golf Blog today. I heard about a cool fundraiser for the Junior Golf Program in town and stopped by with my phone to shoot a quick video.

In the end, 3 different groups played a combined 187 holes between 7:50 am and dark that evening. People had donated a set amount per hole. They had expected to play about 120 holes, but ended up with an amazing 187 played.

Every golfer had to play the ball all the way into the hole.

The program could still use donations, so if you want to support Junior Golf in the Missoula area, give the Ranch Club a call at 406-532-1000 for details. Also mark your calendars for Saturday, May 21. The Ranch Club is also sponsoring a fun day of activities for golfer of all ages.

Finally, keep up to speed with the Junior Golf Scene by visiting the Missoula Junior Golf page on Facebook and clicking “Like”.

Todd Wolverton was born in Missoula and is a UM class of ‘88 alum. Todd and has been an avid golfer for over 40 years, but make no mistake, he’s no pro. He’s just a guy on the course yelling “fore”. Todd is the first to tell you he has his good days and his bad – more bad than good – but to him there are no bad days that include golf. Yes, Todd loves to tell stories and right here is where you will hear them–on a weekly basis. You can expect stories about his latest round, stuff he knows or thinks he knows, and interesting anecdotes about the the past and the present in the world of golf as he knows it…….Missoula area golf!
