I like to play golf because I like to be with my Special Olympics friends. I like the golf course and the pretty grounds.  I like to learn how to swing the club right. I like to putt. I also like to watch others play golf. I like being outside and seeing the birds fly by and the butterflies too. I like riding on the golf carts. I think Joyce and Bob are very good coaches.

*Ashley Fawvor is a Greater Houston area athlete and a member of the area's newest golf team, Treasures of Joy.  She is enjoying playing golf for the first time and competing alongside her new friends and competitors.  Thank you, Ashley, for sharing your love of the game with us!
