Ever plan an event where you got way out over your skis and picked a terrible weekend? Did the event barely get off the ground? But, along the way were some first-rate fellow Refugees kind enough to donate their time and talents? What do you do? You race some damn ducks!
Thursday 8/25 at 9:30 EST we’ll be duck racing for the below prizes. 100% of the cash raised will be donated to the John Marshall High School golf program in inner-city Cleveland. My contact at the school has been the Athletic Director. He explained when we first spoke that the kids on the team are almost always new to the game, and have “decades-old equipment if they have it all” He told me about a lefty on last year’s team they especially had a hard time finding clubs for. He was beyond appreciative that we would do this.
Ducks are 10.00 each. Or increase your odds by donating more. Three ducks for 25.00 or seven for 50.00. Winner of race one picks/his her prize, gets that duck removed, and we go on down the line.
@Geaugolf headcover. Brenda is the OG of the Refuge handmade headcover game. She’ll work with the winner to pick fabrics and colors.
@nohio headcover. John burst onto the headcover scene in January with his epic laundry bag turned headcover masterpiece. He also can convert a flag or jersey into a driver, fairway wood, or hybrid cover. Or, pick a fabric from spoonflower.com
3 guest times at Oberlin GC, hosted by @waver82. Fellow big fan of this course, @quicktempo describes it as “A truly classic ‘golf’ club with no frills or tricks, just provocative golf. 18 unique and subtle but not easy greens that will make you think on and around them. As you leave the course you’ll drive past #1 and immediately want to play again”
Odyssey White Hot #7 Stroke Lab putter, brand new. Donated by a friend of the program. Available in either RH or LH.
@flanwilder has added new acrylic bag tags and markers to his offerings at Buckeye Tags. Saw version 1.0 in person and they are ! Custom tag and marker package to a race winner.

Today I had the pleasure of checking out Western Birch’s Cleveland production site. Very small but really cool. Donated a pretty sick package of seven boxes of tees, a hat, and an XL T-shirt. Picture down the thread!
