Colby's Army, a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization, will host their third annual Pasture Putt Putt Golf and Games event on Saturday and Sunday, May 23-24 from noon - 4:00 PM at their learning center facility at 1394 George Boyd Road, Ashland City, Tennessee 37015.
The event was originally scheduled for the first weekend of May, but due to the coronavirus pandemic, the decision was made to push it back a few weeks.
"We will keep monitoring the situation and adjust accordingly, as per local closures and restrictions," said Lisa Wysocky, Colby's Army executive director.
The event will feature eighteen holes of putt putt golf along their beautiful creek-side therapeutic riding trails, plus a separate nineteenth hole-in-one competition with a $50 prize for a hole in one (or for the ball closest to the hole). Plus, lawn games such as croquet, lawn bowling, corn hole, etc. will be available to play; and there will be food available for purchase, and facility tours.
Putt putt obstacles for each of the very unique holes are made from recycled, repurposed, and upcycled materials in in effort to showcase creative uses for materials that might otherwise end up in a landfill. Educational signage accompanies each hole. "Each round of golf can be played for just $5, with kids five and under playing for free, and clubs and balls are provided," said Wysocky. "We hope everyone will come out with their family and friends for a really fun afternoon, and we hope everyone will learn something about repurposing items and the effects of litter along the way." Current event sponsors include the Cheatham County Lions Club, Griswold Realty, and LisaWysocky.com. Some hole and event sponsorships are still available.
Colby's Army helps children and adults with life challenges such as autism, Down syndrome, homelessness, depression, anxiety, cerebral palsy, PTSD, and development delay through innovative programs such as therapeutic horseback riding and ground work with horses, organic gardening, job training, and homeless outreach. They currently serve people in Cheatham, Montgomery, Davidson, Hickman, Williamson, Sumner and Robertson counties, and are always looking to train new volunteers.
