12 Holes for 12 Steps Golf Tournament

Sober Corps, a Twin Cities-based nonprofit dedicated to supporting chemical addiction recovery programs, will host its seventh annual 12 Holes for 12 Steps Golf Tournament. The event is scheduled for Thursday, September 14, 2017, at Braemar Golf Course in Edina, Minn. Sober Corps will also host a dinner, a musical performance by Ellis and a silent auction to follow the 12 holes of golf. All event proceeds provide broad-based support for Sober Corps’ mission of helping people achieve their first year of freedom from chemical addiction through life-skills mentoring, training and networking.

In a crowded marketplace, Sober Corps’ 12 Holes for 12 Steps golf tournament shines. All of the proceeds from this tournament are used to grow our mentorship program, expand our community outreach, and host our Life Launch workshops – free educational seminars that cover topics such as personal finance and budgeting, basic computer skills, job search and interview tips, and parenting skills.

Why 12 Holes

Sober Corps has adopted the 12-hole format to highlight the significance of the 12-step process associated with chemical dependency recovery programs and to allow for a more manageable time commitment from participants. Each foursome will play nine holes and then play three of the nine holes a second time, recording only their best scores on each of those three holes.
