2020 OGCSA/WWGCSA Service Project @ The Children’s Course
March 19 @ 8:00 am - 1:00 pmFree
We are excited to announce that on Thursday, March 19th, the 2nd annual OGCSA/WWGCSA joint service project will take place at the Children’s Course in Gladstone, OR. Once again Superintendents and industry partners from Oregon and Washington will be joining forces to give back to the community and assist the Children’s Course in completing maintenance projects around the property and give them a jump start to the 2020 golf season.
The Children’s Course is located in a beautiful setting nestled between the Clackamas and Willamette Rivers in Gladstone. It originally opened for play as Rivergreens Golf Course in 1961 as an 18-hole, par 3 course. In 1989, following the development of apartments on the perimeter, the course was redesigned into a 9-hole, par 3 course.
In 1996 founder, Duncan Campbell and his wife Cindy, had a vision to create a golf course that would be dedicated to children. The Children’s Course was born from this vision. Providing a location for children to learn and play the game of golf was just part of Duncan’s plan. He envisioned using golf to provide positive youth development.
The Children’s Course eventually partnered with the national organization, The First Tee and has embraced its Core Values. Our mission is to impact the lives of kids ages 4-18 by providing learning facilities and educational programs. The game of golf helps to instill integrity and make people of rich character.
The Children’s Course operates as a non-profit 501 (c) (3), and is funded by private donations from foundations, corporations and individuals. The golf course is home to The First Tee of Greater Portland, which provides young people with character-building and life skills lessons using golf as the platform.
