Links Across America

        This new initiative of the Wadsworth Golf Charities Foundation involves……

Creating a team of Company Partners (golf course architects, golf course builders and company suppliers) from the Golf Industry  to develop “feeder short courses” (three, six or nine-hole) across the country that will provide affordable golf for youth, families, adult beginners and individuals with injuries and disabilities.
