For more information:
Darrell Hovinen
DeafGolfNut@comcast.net
Notes from Darrell:
1. It is wise for new golfers to contact me first, because if the tee times are full, then sometimes, the golf course won’t let last minute golfers play if the outing is already full.
2. These outings are NOT for beginners. Players must already know how to play golf AND have average score less than 120 for 18 holes or 60 for 9 holes.
3. Deadline is two weeks before the outing date. After that deadline, I cannot guarantee if they can play, but contact me anyway for more information.

Darrell Hovinen

Notes from Darrell:
1. It is wise for new golfers to contact me first, because if the tee times are full, then sometimes, the golf course won’t let last minute golfers play if the outing is already full.
2. These outings are NOT for beginners. Players must already know how to play golf AND have average score less than 120 for 18 holes or 60 for 9 holes.
3. Deadline is two weeks before the outing date. After that deadline, I cannot guarantee if they can play, but contact me anyway for more information.

1. It is wise for new golfers to contact me first, because if the tee times are full, then sometimes, the golf course won’t let last minute golfers play if the outing is already full.
2. These outings are NOT for beginners. Players must already know how to play golf AND have average score less than 120 for 18 holes or 60 for 9 holes.
3. Deadline is two weeks before the outing date. After that deadline, I cannot guarantee if they can play, but contact me anyway for more information.
