2nd Annual Golf Tournament


It’s not every day that you get to chase a little white ball around acres of finely trimmed grass and have it matter. I mean truly matter. But Sunday, September 15th is one of those days.

First, there’s something you should know about me. I love golf. I absolutely love it. It’s one of the two things in this world that can get me up before 5:00am (the other being my mother’s command to “get up NOW!” to catch an early flight). But it’s never lost on me that aiming at a three-inch wide target and swinging a piece of metal doesn’t really matter in the big picture. It’s leisure, it’s an escape, it’s for my own personal indulgence and little else. My golf game isn’t going to change lives. In fact, it might even endanger some who are standing in the path of my 3-wood slice.

But on Sunday, September 15th, for an afternoon and an evening, golf has the chance to matter. Dwankhozi Hope’s second annual Golf Tournament takes place at The Home Course in Dupont, WA. The $75 entry fee gets you free range balls, nine holes of golf at a beautiful course, potential prizes, dinner and drinks afterwards, AND a portion of it goes directly to Dwankhozi Hope’s work in Zambia. But there’s more opportunity for impact. Companies and individuals have the chance to sponsor a specific hole, the driving range, the putting green, golf carts, and all of that money goes directly to Dwankhozi Hope. But wait, I already know what you’re thinking:

Yes, it’s a bit of a drive to Dupont, WA (an hour). Yes it’s the second week of the NFL season (Tivo was invented for a reason). Those are fine excuses. They really are. But these are the students who will be on the receiving end of that afternoon:


It’s simple: You enjoy an afternoon of golfing festivities (and hopefully stick around for a short program afterwards!), and the children at Dwankhozi Basic School get a better chance at the education they deserve.

Now that’s golf that matters. Sign me up.
