Castlewood Country Club
Golf has a long-standing history of giving back to communities, with billions of dollars raised annually for charities, as well as promoting positive values of integrity, respect, and perseverance. The Castlewood Country Club and its members value local community involvement and are actively contributing in numerous ways.
Members of Castlewood hold an annual Food Drive collecting numerous bags of food and cash donations. In 2011, Castlewood collected $5,600 and two truck loads of food. Now entering its fourth decade, Tri-Valley Haven continues to be a vital community resource serving adults and children who have experienced domestic violence, sexual assault, or homelessness.
