Bear Creek Golf Complex – Cub Course, Chandler, AZ

The 11th Annual JGAA 100 Hole Golf Marathon was held on September 29, 2012 at the Bear Creek Golf Complex in Chandler, Arizona. This year’s marathon was a success, with over 25 players raising over $70,000 for the Junior Golf Association of Arizona. The Marathon is the only major fund raiser by the organization which gives those dedicated to junior golf the opportunity to give back and at the same time provide significant dollars to the Junior Golf Association of Arizona to fund their many programs.
