Scramble for Sight - Blind Golfing

The Scramble for Sight and Junior Golf Clinic for visually impaired youth
The 5th Annual Scramble for Sight and Junior Golf Clinic will be held Monday, September 24, 2007 at the Reserve Golf and Country Club, North Course, in Aloha. The Reserve is one of Oregon’s premier courses, playing host to the Jeld-Wen Tradition, the Champions Tour final Major of the year.
The Junior Golf Clinic: A special part of this annual event is the junior golf clinic. This clinic, one of the largest in the country, brings more than 50 students from the Oregon and Washington Schools for the blind as well as mainstream schools together with local professionals. Students spend the morning working with local PGA professionals and teachers on chipping, driving and putting skills introducing students to the joys—and the challenges—of the game of golf.
Making a difference in the health of Oregonians: Proceeds from the Scramble for Sight support the efforts of the Oregon Lions Sight & Hearing Foundation to improve the quality of life for all Oregonians in need of sight and hearing assistance. From preventative health screenings to sight or hearing saving surgeries OLSHF serves more than 56,000 youth and adults annually in all corners of Oregon.
