Solving Addiction on the Green

Shatter stigma and shame around addiction.

Solving Addiction on the Green is different than other golf fundraisers:

  • It’s a nine-hole event played on an executive golf course.  
  • We know everyone’s busy, so we offer five shotgun start times: 7 a.m., 10 a.m., 1 p.m., 4 p.m. and 7 p.m.  
  • We play a best-ball format to make it more fun and less intimidating for novice players.

The event also includes a unique partnership with The First Tee of South Dakota -- a national youth golf program that promotes honesty and other core values through hands-on activities.  

This is the only The First Tee event that gives area youngsters an opportunity to participate alongside adults, and they really enjoy it. We hope to have a The First Tee participant play along with every group!  

Like our celebrated “March Into The Light,” this event serves to educate the community on addiction, recovery and the stigma and shame often associated with the disease.
