BACK TO BANDON 10 The NCGA is headed back to one of its most popular destinations in 2019, Bandon Dunes. Get ready to mark your calendars. CALENDAR 12 On the Tee: September Hiking for Charity On Sept. 10, 40-plus hikers in Northern California and across the country will take on the daunting task of playing 100 holes in one day to raise money and awareness for Youth on Course. To support the hikers and YOC, you can pledge any amount toward anyone participating for each hole of golf they play—or you can make a one-time donation to the hiker or the cause! For example, if you pledge $1 per hole and the hiker plays 100 holes, that's $100 towards YOC. Hikers will be playing from sun-up to sundown, walking 20-plus miles. Follow along on social media using #YOCH3 or follow @yocgolf. For more info or to pledge, please visit Photo: USGA/Chris Keane
