John Ashworth, one of the golf industry’s more successful entrepreneurs of the past 30 years, has pledged to walk and complete 108 holes on June 29 at the Goat Hill Park Golf Course in Oceanside, Calif., to raise money for the non-profit organization, Feeding San Diego, a leading hunger relief and food rescue establishment in Southern California.
Ashworth was the founder of the industry-changing Ashworth apparel brand more than three decades ago and currently is co-founder and president of apparel company, Linksoul.
Ashworth annually takes on the 108-hole challenge to raise money for the North County Junior Golf Association (NCJGA) Caddie and Leadership Academy, but due to the pandemic those schedules were greatly reduced, so he sought out another non-profit that could benefit from his journey. San Diego reportedly has seen a 50 percent increase in hunger, with one in eight people in San Diego County, including one in six children, facing hunger.
Ashworth will attempt to raise $25,000 – or enough money for 100,000 healthy meals.
