This is a little off-topic (although there will be at least two pinball machines here next year). I'm hoping everyone on Pinside can give me some help. And moderators, if this is inappropriate, please remove this post and accept my sincerest apologies. I am not trying to circumvent Pinside rules.
As many of you know, I am a PGA Golf Professional. I own a small golf course in Old Town, Maine. This past spring, a course out in the state of Washington called Village Greens Golf Course was going to be permanently closed. It happened to be the course where I began my career as a golf professional, and it bothered me a great deal that this gem of a place was going to disappear forever. Thanks to a lot of help from a lot of people, we were able to save the place.
Now I'm asking for everyone's help. We're in the running for a $25k grant and part of it is determined by public vote. If you could take a moment and click on the link to vote, and scroll down to the bottom (you'll see my face) and vote for Village Greens Golf Course, it would be much appreciated.
If we are fortunate enough to win this grant, we plan to use the money for badly needed maintenance equipment, and to fund golf programs through the Kitsap County School Districts.
Thank you in advance for your help. I am truly appreciative for your consideration. And please share this on your Facebook page, Instagram, Twitter and encourage all of your friends to vote for us as well.
