Do you love to golf and enjoy good BBQ?

Your golf team will play on one of the best courses in the Kansas City area while sampling delicious BBQ and drink pairings throughout the course.

Do you love good BBQ but do not golf?

Sign up for the BBQ Academy course. Participants in teams of 4 will get a fast-paced introduction to the art and science of BBQ. You’ll learn the tools of the trade, the difference between hot-n-fast and low-n-slow, and how to apply them to turn out the best grilling and BBQ you have ever tried.

Come hungry and get ready for a fun-filled day to further the mission of Operation BBQ Relief!
