This is a new page on our website to inform and guide families who wish to contribute trees, benches or other items to one of our golf courses providing lasting memories of their loved ones.  Plaques are also placed near provided trees or benches at the time of positioning.  All memorial trees, benches and plaques are paid for by the family.  Other options are available and will be listed here in the future. 

Our Head Superintendents advise families on tree or bench selection and assist families with the final location of the donated trees or benches.  Our maintenance staff provides the planting and future care at no charge.

Some examples:
