Special programs: BIGHORN Golf Club Charities has three highly visible charitable programs:

  • BIGHORN Cares funds specific projects by local non-profit organizations which demonstrate a need and are making a real difference in the community. It is supported by member contributions, 100% of which are passed through to qualified local non-profits. Each year dozens of them receive up to $25,000.
