During the summer months, there are so many opportunities to help local organizations. Fun runs, walks, rides and hikes take place just about every weekend to help many Hudson Valley charities. But what if you don't run or bike or hike?

Good news, you can also golf. That right many of our Hudson Valley, New York golf courses have events during the summer that benefits local charities and groups. If you love to golf why not make one of your outings an opportunity to give back?

Check-in at your local course to see what is on the bulletin board. if you don't see an event that you want to play in maybe survey some of the other courses in the area. On a quick glance through social media, I was able to find this event happening later this summer.
