THE GOLF FOR CHRIST LEAGUE
HISTORY AND BACKGROUND

The Golf for Christ league of DuPage AME Church was founded in 1988 for the purpose of providing an opportunity to promote fellowship in Christ among Christians and friends of DuPage AME Church through the sport of Golf. "What a fellowship, what a joy divine!"

The league was open to men, women, and children and met Saturday afternoons during the spring and summer months for fellowship in a round of golf.

The Golf for Christ league of DuPage AME Church enacted a program in 1999 to assist members of our Boy Scout Troup to get their golf merit badges. In 2004 the program was expanded to introduce the game of golf to aspiring youths of our church and surrounding communities. We formed a partnership with the United States Golf Association who provided a matching grant award to help fund the program. We were successful in matching the award with our first annual fundraiser Golf Tournament in July of 2004.

Throughout the summer and winter months of 2004/2005 we provided golf clinics each Saturday at Ditka's Sports Dome in Bolingbrook. This provided continual practice and development of skills during the off-season.

In December of 2004, the group organized an executive committee and advisory board; and conducted its first board meeting on December 4, 2004.

The board elected to expand our youth golf development program to reach a greater number of our youths as we added additional partners that will include the Hook-A-Kid On Golf Foundation of Illinois and the Cantigny Foundation; along with the United States Golf Association.

MISSION STATEMENT

"To serve as a financial, mentor and coaching resource for aspiring young golfers, who because of social status, family status or lack of financial resources are unable to obtain equipment, training or fees required to successfully participate in the game of golf."

Life skills development coupled with golf skills development to build strong character traits is an integral part of the youth mentoring aspect of our program.
