3rd Ability360 Charity Golf Tournament Presented by Lovitt & Touché set for September 21 at Longbow Golf Club in Mesa

The third Ability360 Charity Golf Tournament, a best-ball tournament where golfers with and without disabilities play side by side, is set for Friday, September 21 at Longbow Golf Club, 5601 E. Longbow Parkway in Mesa, Arizona.  The shotgun start is scheduled at 8 a.m.

Presented by Lovitt & Touché, proceeds from the tournament will support the independence, health and overall well-being of people with disabilities using the 45,000-square foot nonprofit Ability360 Sports& Fitness Center, one of the nation’s first fully adaptive sports and fitness centers.

An Ability360 Sports & Fitness Center member, many with a disability, will play in each tournament foursome. Last year, 144 golfers filled up the sold-out field and helped raise nearly $40,000.

“This is a great day of golf on a great golf course that also encourages and stimulates conversation about the importance and value of inclusion in sports and to raise awareness about men and women with disabilities,” said Ability360 President and CEO Phil Pangrazio. 

Longbow Golf Club was one of the state’s first public access courses to test, purchase and offer specialized adaptive golf carts and to host clinics and events for youth and adults to learn to play golf.

The $200 cost per golfer includes greens fees, golf cart, range balls, tee gifts and a post-event reception, which will include a helicopter ball drop for first, second and third place prizes. Event and hole sponsorship opportunities are currently available.
