The 1st Annual USASA Golf Classic presented by Devil’s Head Resort and Alpine Resort teed up at McHenry Country Club this past Friday with a star-studded cast of Olympic athletes who raised over $20,000 for USASA. Olympians Kelly Clark, Justin Reiter, and Tricia Byrnes were on-site to support USASA’s continued fundraising efforts along with Bud Keene, three-time Olympic coach and owner of BK Pro Progression camps. “It is so great to come out and support USASA, and have a little fun at the same time”, said Keene, adding “USASA is such an important part of the development of athletes on their journey through sports and life, and I’m proud to be a part of that.”

Three-time Olympic medalist Kelly Clark agrees, “The USASA Golf Classic was so much fun! All of us came up competing in USASA events and having entry-level events to seed and progress snowboarding is essential to the future of snowboarding and I love getting out to play some golf for a good cause I believe in.”

The tournament was a Best Ball scramble with a $1,000 cash purse. The team from Devil’s Head Resort in Wisconsin won the 1st Annual Golf Classic at McHenry with an impressive 20 under par and proceeded to donate the $1,000 prize back to USASA. Supporters of USASA who couldn’t make the trip to McHenry, IL were encouraged to join the fun by participating in the Virtual Golf Classic. Maine Mountain Series Director Chrissy Hamel won the ladies division playing her local golf course in Bethel, Maine and Sierra Nevada University Golf Team Coach Eric Tanguay won the men’s division on a day out with fellow SNU alums at Maderas Golf Club in Poway, CA.
 The Devil's Head Resort team cleaned up and gave back in big ways to USASA.

“This year’s event was such a big success thanks to all our partners and USASA supporters who showed up despite the many challenges of COVID-19. We can’t wait to make next year’s event even bigger and better” Dana Wilson, USASA’s Director of Development said.
