Legend Oaks collecting used golf equipment for junior programs

Legend Oaks Golf Course in Summerville plans to add a driving range in 2017.

The seventh annual Legend Oaks Gives Back Used Golf Equipment Drive is going on this month with the club collecting used golf equipment that will be donated to the South Carolina Junior Golf Association for use in its programs. The month-long initiative began April 1.

Each year the SCJGA collects and refurbishes more than 2,000 used golf clubs for its Clubs-4-Kids program. Equipment is provided to schools, individuals, specialty programs and any child needing clubs.

Since beginning its program, Legend Oaks, through the generosity of other golf clubs and members, has donated more than 3,300 golf clubs along with golf balls, bags and head covers.

For information or to participate contact Kathy Chickarello at Legend Oaks Golf Club, 843-821-4077 ext. 113 or email kchickarello@legendoaksgolf.com.

Daniel Island Club has joined Wescott Golf Club in serving as a host site for the Charleston PGA HOPE (Helping Our Patriots Everywhere) chapter, a golf partnership between the PGA of American and the Veterans Administration. The program introduces veterans with disabilities to the game of golf and has grown from six last summer to 40 participants for the spring program that will begin this month.
