BROWNWOOD, Texas - People usually golf for sport or friendly competition, but Friday's games at the Hideout Golf Club in Brown County were about much more.
As part of the 3rd annual 100 Holes for Families, people tried to golf as many holes as possible and got sponsors to help them. Sponsors donated a certain amount of money per hole.
Most of the proceeds will benefit the Family Services Center (FSC), which offers counseling, mediation, battered women prevention and more. You can find more facts on the center here.
FSC's executive director, Doak Givan, said it means a lot to him to see the community's support. "Just realizing how many people really care about helping other people and supporting the center and what we do...It's very rewarding to see that in action."
There were many people who had little to no golf experience, but came out to participate in the event.
"We're here to raise some money for charities so we can help families in need...just spending some good quality time for a good cause," said golfer Mitchell Bailey.
FSC will hold another 100 Holes for Families event on May 5th at the Brownwood Country Club. It is free to sign up. For more details, you can call (325) 646-5939.
