Rich Harvest Farms

Rich Harvest Farms

What started out as a dream for Jerry and Betty Rich has turned into one of Golf Digest’s “America’s 100 Greatest Golf Courses,” and the Kids Golf Foundation is proud to call Rich Harvest Farms its home.

This incredible facility offers the Foundation a site for its office building and use of the indoor and outdoor amenities during our events and training sessions. Since Rich Harvest Farms is aprivate facility, program sites do not have access to the golf course outside of Foundation events. Of all Jerry’s accomplishments, he hopes the Foundation will become his legacy.
