What is the Pitch N Putt for Kids
The Pitch N Putt for Kids is an annual golf fundraiser with the goal of raising more than $20,000 for Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Calgary. This year's event will be held on Friday June 2, 2017 at the McCall Lake Par 3, 9 Hole Golf Course in Calgary, Alberta. The Pitch N Putt for kids is operated by the Canadian Progress Club - Calgary Bow River (cpcbowriver.com), a Calgary service club who has committed itself to the community since 1977, raising over $5,000,000 for various charities during that time.
The Pitch N Putt for Kids is a fun shotgun start tournament where teams will compete for an assortment of prizes on 9 par 3 challenge holes like Closest to the Pin, Hole in One, Beat the Pro and more! Prizes tickets won through fundraising and completing challenges are entered into the final prize draw at the end of the day for great odds at winning some awesome prizes. The more funds you raise and the more challenges you complete, the better your chances of winning! Best of all, all net proceeds go to an important cause.
Food, snacks and beverages will be offered throughout the day, and other optional contests like the Speed Putting Challenge are available to all.
