SANTA MONICA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--September is National Prostate Cancer Awareness month, and thanks to JC GOLF courses in Southern California, you can join other golfers in the battle to end death and suffering from this disease. As you play a round of golf, you will help countless fathers, brothers, uncles, grandfathers, husbands, and friends who are battling prostate cancer.
From Friday September 20th through Sunday September 22nd, JC GOLF courses in Southern California will contribute one dollar from each 18-hole greens fee to the Prostate Cancer Foundation, a non-profit organization committed to curing prostate cancer. Supporting courses include: Encinitas Ranch in Encinitas, CA; Temecula Golf Course in Temecula, CA; Twin Oaks in San Marcos, CA; and both Rancho Bernardo Inn, Reidy Creek and Oaks North in San Diego, CA. Participants in the weekend golf event, called Golf Fore Fathers, may enter drawings for great prizes from Callaway Golf—a Carlsbad, Ca.-based manufacturer and designer of golfing equipment—and travel certificates from Let’s Travel—a Santa Monica, Ca.-based travel agency.
Golf Fore Fathers, a unique fundraising program developed in conjunction with other fundraising golf programs to benefit the Prostate Cancer Foundation, incorporates supporting golf courses located throughout the United States and their loyal clientele or golf club members. The program especially honors dads who have introduced many players to the game of golf and who may be affected by prostate cancer. In addition to honoring dads, the Golf Fore Fathers program intends to increase prostate cancer awareness among all men and their families who enjoy golf and to support the Prostate Cancer Foundation’s valued global research programs. One in six men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime.
Tee times can be made through the JC GOLF website at www.jcgolf.com. Once at the course, players are encouraged to submit their names and contact information for prize drawings. The random selection of those winners will be held upon completion of the weekend’s play. We hope to see you on the JC GOLF links! Your support of Golf Fore Fathers and the efforts to cure prostate cancer is greatly appreciated!
