Omaha is only one of several cities, and/or states with activities associations sponsoring annual golf tournaments. The tournament is held every August, it is a 3 day event full of fun, camaraderie, prizes and of course, great golf!
Events like this have attracted participants from numerous states and Canada with abilities ranging from scratch to the high average golfer. Division by age, type of amputation and flighting offer all a chance to compete equally; but more importantly, offers the opportunity for camaraderie, fun and lasting friendships.
The tournament weekend starts with a Friday scramble which pairs non-amputees with amputees in a four person best shot format. This event, which is our primary fundraiser for the association, promotes awareness, achievement and socialization.
A Friday evening social event officially kicks off the amputee events and offers the opportunity to renew old friendships and develop new ones. Saturday begins the two days of tournament golf for the amputees. The annual association meeting and banquet for participants and families is held on Saturday.
Awards for an overall champion, division winners, and flight winners are presented following the final 18 holes on Sunday.
