golfers decked out in their costumes went out for an afternoon of free golf, candy and Halloween fun at the Journey golf course located at Pechanga Resort & Casino Thursday, Oct. 26. The free Halloween clinic was taught by PGA Golf Professional and Journey at Pechanga Instructor Randy Chang. Randy teaches a plethora of golfers from beginning to pro and runs the kids’ Tiny Tees lessons at Journey.
Those that enjoyed the experience at the free clinic, plus all other interested parties are encouraged to visit Journey at Pechanga over the next two weeks as they will also be hosting the second annual Candy for Golf campaign from Nov. 1-11. Candy for Golf encourages a healthy lifestyle as well as teaches Southern California youth the importance of Veteran’s Day this Nov. 11.
Randy will provide free group lessons to any child/teen up to 18 years old that brings in one full bag of Halloween candy during the collection period. Lessons may be applied on the spot if available or will be scheduled for a later date that month. Candy may be dropped off between 7 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. every day at the Journey at Pechanga Pro Shop front desk.
All Halloween candy donations will be sent to U.S. military members through Operation Gratitude, a nonprofit organization whose mission is to lift the spirits and meet the evolving needs of those serving in active duty and veterans. A large part of their mission is to send items and care packages to troops stationed overseas as well as veterans groups.
