Robson golfers made another large donation of used golf equipment to Junior Golf of Arizona. It took three trips to deliver it all to them using a big van. Lucky for Russ, they come to pick it up. As you may know, Russ Stocek has been collecting the golf donations for 13 years now.
This year there were 77 golf bags, 110 assorted woods, 740 irons, and 70 putters. All of this stuff filled Russ’ garage! In addition, there were five hard case travel bags as well as three soft sided travel bags. Six like-new push carts were also donated by golfers who decided they may have gotten too old to use them. Golf shoes aplenty with 55 pairs as well as boxes and bags of golf clothes, head covers, towels, hats, and lots of tees were donated.
Founded in 1983, the Junior Golf Association of Arizona (JGAA) is a non-profit organization that introduces Arizona’s youth to the game of golf and helps junior golfers develop golf and life skills through competitive programs and tournaments. In addition to developing programs at schools and assisting Arizona golf courses with their junior programs, the JGAA conducts more than 100 programs and activities, including etiquette clinics, tournaments, and college prep seminars throughout Arizona each year. The JGAA awards two scholarship funds annually to high school senior members of the JGAA for their college education—the Tres Arnold and the John Wolfinger Memorial College Scholarships. The JGAA’s strong belief in teamwork and cooperation continues to guide the organization and is instilled in all of its members. For more information, you can visit their website at www.jgaa.org.
There is now a yellow bin year-round in the Pro Shop, to the left of the counter, where you can deposit your unwanted balls.
Thanks for all your donations of golf equipment to a great organization that will help kids take up the game that we all love.
