The mission of the WGEM/Herald-Whig TriState Pro-Am is to further junior golf in the area and give back to the community. Golf teaches many valuable life lessons, and we find it important to grow the game to help our youth become successful in life.
This year’s beneficiaries will be the Quincy Medical Group Foundation with an emphasis on cancer research and the Junior Rangers Golf Academy.
Quincy Medical Group Foundation
Quincy Medical Group established the QMG Healthcare Foundation in 2007. As the area’s leading healthcare provider, the organization wanted to give back to the communities it serves. Money raised by the QMG Healthcare Foundation is invested in programs, partnerships and projects that enhance the health of our communities, support development, and positively impact youth.
The QMG Healthcare Foundation will support regional organizations that improve the health and well-being of the communities we serve, foster community development initiatives, and provide resources for programs and partnerships focused on youth.
Junior Rangers Golf Academy
Started as part of the First Tee LINK Program in 2016, the Junior Rangers Golf Academy offers instruction for golfers ages 5-11 in a comfortable and instructive setting. The goal is to teach technique, golf etiquette and like skills. Programs run year-round and a majority of them take place at Spring Lake Country Club.
