|Spring BB Presented by Midwest Security Services|

The event will include a lunch prior to the 1pm shotgun and will have four divisions of play. Open (Scratch), Handicap, Senior Open, and Senior Handicap. |

|Youth on Course|
|Youth on Course is a program that supplements rounds of golf for area youths (Up to 18) so that they pay a maximum of $5 per round when they visit a participating facility, during times the facilities determine. This national initiative out of Northern California has grown to include a big part of the United States and juniors who join have access anywhere the program exist. |
The national Youth on Course program will fund our area in 2018, but come 2019, Miami Valley Golf has pledged to support the expense of the program ourselves.
This is where our business, philanthropic and golf community as a whole comes in. Over the coming months we will be adding more facilities, enrolling more juniors and starting a campaign to develop funding that will be used to match the liability associated with this program.
Your Miami Valley Golf believes in the societal value our great sport brings to current and future generations and are strongly committed to ensuring our youth spend time outdoors with their families, and what a better way than on a golf course.
