Birdies for the Brave Golf Team Pledge Program

 

Golf teams across the country have signed up to participate in the Birdies for the Brave pledge program in which members of their golf teams, along with their families, pledge funds to Birdies for the Brave for each eagle and birdie made during their individual golf seasons.  Participating high schools and golf teams are listed below.

 

Oyster Bay Men's Club
The Town of Oyster Bay Saturday Men’s Club was founded in 1992 by a group of golf enthusiasts at The Town of Oyster Bay Golf Course; the original members had a vision of growing the game of golf through camaraderie and dignified competition. At the onset of the club, the membership of 32 golfers rotated responsibilities by securing a position in line in the parking lot for early morning tee times and participating in a variety of weekly competitive formats. Gladly, our club has secured guaranteed tee times from the Town of Oyster Bay and has grown to 40 members of all ages and skill levels.
Our club made a commitment at the onset of the 2013 season that we would do our best to raise money for Birdies for the Brave through a collaborative effort that allowed for individual achievement every week, thus celebrating every birdie and eagle carded by our membership. We are pleased to have made 352 birdies and 6 eagles as a club this season.
Fundraising Total: $850.00
