A wonderful Australian-based startup is aiming to help needy kids from around the world play golf.
Fairways is a wonderful Australian-based startup aiming to help needy kids from around the world play golf and they will be officially launching at Pymble Golf Clubin Sydney on Monday 28th November.
Tiffany Chaisson and Jeremy White set up Fairways earlier this year – “a nonprofit to help needy kids play golf, anywhere in the world” – and they’ve already helped out a number of kids around the world and had a lot of interest from international golf organisations.
Fairways identifies kids who love golf, but whose families are in difficult financial situations, then we look after their membership, lessons, and range access.
“To date we have sponsored ten children in Canada, five in India, one in Nepal”, Chaisson said. “We will be sponsoring juniors in Australia over the next month before we head to Bolivia to help set up a junior golf clinic there.”
Fairways will officially launch with a fantastic golf day at Pymble Golf Club in a few weeks:
Our event will be a four ball Ambrose (Scramble) with wonderful prizes to be won and the chance to bid on some fantastic items in a small, post-golf auction. The highlight of the auction lots is a St. Andrews Open Championship flag signed by past winners, Tom Watson, Sandy Lyle, Mark O’Meara, Tom Lehman and John Daly, which was very kindly donated by Gordon Moir at St Andrews.
If you want to get involved and be a part of the lunch golf day, check out the Fairways Golf website for more details.
