Abstract/Contents:Profiles John's Golf Course in Eureka, Montana. Discusses how it was started by Steve Espinoza for his son, John, who has Down syndrome, expressed an interest in golf. Also discusses the large amount of help the Espinoza family has received, ranging from seed donations to use of a bulldozer to take down trees. States that "the Espinozas play host to one event every season, a benefit tourney that raises money to take John on a golf trip. Locals and friends enter, and it is the only time anyone pays to play the course. Promotional hats, shirts and jackets collected from businesses and dealers make up tee prizes given to every entrant. Individuals winning putting contests or hole prizes receive gift certificates for restaurants or golf passes to courses in the Flathead Valley area." Describes how to help the Espinoza family with their golf course through donations, but states "I caution people to avoid making Steve a collector and dealer of used junk; however, one man's junk is often another man's needed treasure."
