    Mulligans for Mutts: Giving Animals a Second Shot

    6th Annual Golf Benefit for Foothills Animal Shelter

    Foothills Animal Foundation, the nonprofit that supports Foothills Animal Shelter, one of the largest animal shelters in the metro Denver area, will host the sixth annual Mulligans for Mutts Golf Tournament on Monday, June 13. Participants can choose to play a great round of golf in the morning or afternoon at the exclusive Lakewood Country Club.

    This popular event, which also features adoptable dogs (and their “walkers”) out on the course, has sold out the last three years. In 2010, Mulligans for Mutts raised nearly $30,000 with over 200 participants — making it one of the most well attended events to benefit the Shelter. Proceeds from this year’s tournament will help the Shelter fund many of its vital programs including adoptions and veterinary services.

    An entry fee of $185 per golfer includes access to the driving range and putting green, 18 holes of golf, cart rental, contest prizes and lunch. Tournament play will begin with a shotgun scramble start at 7:30 a.m. for the morning round and 1:30 p.m. for the afternoon round. Due to past success and previously sold-out tournaments, this year participants may now choose from two separate flights. Signing up early will secure a spot in a preferred flight. Golfers can also win prizes by competing in various contests such as putting, longest drive, ball drop and hole-in-one.

    Mulligans for Mutts is hosted at one of Colorado’s premier private golf clubs, Lakewood Country Club. The 100-year-old course was established in 1908 on an original farm site and designed by Tom Bendelow and Donald Ross. The beautiful grounds take the shape of a rolling, wooded area, which feature a creek the length of the course along with four lakes as water challenges. Rich in history, not only does this full-service country club feature impeccably maintained grounds, but access to the multimillion-dollar clubhouse facilities as well. Lakewood Country Club is located at 6800 West Tenth Avenue in Lakewood.

    Part of the tournament entry fee may be considered a donation and all other donations to the Foundation may be deductible as a business or personal expense.
