President’s Corner

Fellow Golfers and Friends,

Thank you for visiting our website. McAdams Golf Club is one of the oldest African American golf clubs in the country. We have successfully held our annual tournament for 86 years and we’re still going strong. Our 87th tournament will be held August 11 – 13th at the PGA rated Auburn Hills Golf Club in Wichita, KS. Our tournaments are always dedicated to our youth who in years past have not had the opportunity to get ahead. We devote our proceeds to scholarships for deserving minority youth and our junior golf activities in our summer junior golf program. On other pages of this site, you will see the young people who have taken our program, some of whom have gone on to advance their golfing skills in other venues.

Last year, we collaborated with the First Tee of Wichita to add value to our golf program. Recognizing that we have the same goals of preparing our youth for the challenges of being good citizens in our community, First Tee brought the core values of good citizenship and sportsmanship to the program. Again, this year, we will dedicate our efforts to enhancing our junior golf program and ensure that low income and minority youth are not left behind in this valuable life skill training. Our goal is to not only expose our youth to the game of golf but give them skills to cope in the game of life. We ask for your support in this effort.

Other clubs around the country will be sponsoring their tournaments and we will certainly be supporting those efforts. We hope that you will consider visiting beautiful downtown Wichita for fun, entertainment, and great golf. In the meantime, focus on those birdies that seem to elude all of us as we journey to a better day of golf.

Happy golfing,

George Kolb
President
