Fall presents great fundraising and golfing opportunities

Yes, the leaves are changing, and soon winter white will replace summer’s green and autumn’s gold. In the meantime, there are still plenty of reasons to break out those clubs a few more times. The scenery is spectacular, the rates are less, and, a round can also benefit one of Grand County’s own non-profits fundraising efforts, regardless of how well you play! Here’s a list of upcoming tournaments open to all players:
