Duffers rack up $3,470 in donations to benefit high school boys and girls golfers.

The men's and women's clubs of the Oregon Golf Association teed off in support of the Woodburn High School boys and girls golf teams Wednesday, June 15.

This is the first time the OGA clubs have held the fundraiser for the golf programs, according to OGA Golf Course Director of Operations Ryan Garry, and it made sense to give back to the golfers who often start out at an OGA golf course.

"(Woodburn High School golf coach) Neil (Wilhelm) has been out here for a long time coaching the boys and girls teams," Garry said. "Our PGA junior league program, a lot of those kids go on to play high school golf, so it's a good way for us to support Woodburn High School golf and get some money back to them since they're here and spend a lot of time with us."

The event had a shotgun start at 8:30 a.m., which means that golfers began playing at the same time but at different places on the course. The OGA clubs drummed up donations from local businesses, ultimately racking up $3,470 in funds. Sixty-eight players participated in the event.
