2017 Kiwanis Club Annual Golf Challenge
Friday, September 29th at 1 pm
Adobe Creek Golf Course

Brief History

The 2017 Golf Challenge will be held at the Adobe Creek National Golf Course[].  Nestled against the backdrop of the scenic Colorado National Monument, Adobe Creek National Golf Course offers 27 holes on three separate nine hole courses - The Mesa, The Monument and The Desert.   All three nines connect to a very spacious open concept clubhouse.  The Kiwanis Golf Challenge has everything you want in golf challenge:  hole prizes, putting contests, auction items, dinner and refreshments.

The Kiwanis Golf Challenge was started by Kiwanian Wally Bissinger in 1996 to create a scholarship fund for our local high school key clubs.  Today, this event raises money to support all the programs that Kiwanis supports to serve children in Mesa County through our annual allocations program.
