Golf (and fish) ’til you drop at Birdies & Bass!

Our Birdies & Bass tournament, typically held in July, is our signature golf event.  Teams compete in a full day of golf preceded by a fishing derby where, thanks to help from our self-advocates, teams can shave strokes off their golf score by reeling in big fish from one of the lakes on course.  Our event also traditionally features a silent and live auction, as well as great food and drink.

Birdies and Bass will take place on Monday July 25, 2016 at Persimmon Woods Gulf Club in Weldon Spring, MO. The schedule of events for the tournament is 

  • 9:00am-Professional fishing clinic followed by an opportunity to fish for bass to lower golf score
  • 10:00am- Registration and lunch followed by the “birdies” portion of the event
  • After golf-Dinner and awards ceremony followed by the closing
