One amazing benefit of hosting a Virtual Golf Tournament is that anyone, anywhere can participate! 


Our goal is to include at least one tournament sponsor, sofa or scorecard golfer from each state.  We already have international participation, with one participant in Kenya and another in Canada.  Do you know someone you would like to connect with or visit with virtually? Do they enjoy golf, fun, and inspirational conversation?
