For over 10 years, golfers have been raising funds for medical repurposing research at Cures Within Reach’s annual LDOG event. In 2019, we played at Rich Harvest Farms, named the 5th best new private course in the US by Golf Digest when it debuted in 1999 and an exclusive private course rarely accessible by non-members.
