Friends of Oregon Agriculture Golf Tournament

Golf Tournament Fundraiser

Every August, Oregon Aglink hosts the Friends of Oregon Agriculture Golf Tournament which benefits the Cultivating Common Ground initiative, ultimately supporting all of our programs and communicating the story of Oregon’s natural resources.

Dates for the 2020 Golf Tournament will be announced in January.

Our most recent presenting sponsor was Northwest Farm Credit Services. In a modified scramble format, teams of four combined their skills to play 18 holes at Chehalem Glenn Golf Course, buying mulligans, gimme string and a PGA Pro-Shot to outscore the other teams and win the tournament.
