MDRF Golf Classic

Denver Realtor Foundation Sponsor

The White Orchid was a proud sponsor of the 2011 Metro Denver Realtor Foundation (MDRF) Annual Golf Classic at Arrowhead Golf Club. Members of the White Orchid Interior Design Team joined forces with teachers and students from the Colorado Center for the Blind to give tournament participants an opportunity to experience the game of golf from a blind persons perspective. After completing their round of golf, each competitor was given the opportunity to lower their score by making a putt while wearing a blindfold. Students from the Colorado Center for the Blind provided instruction regarding characteristics of the putt including direction and distance to the pin, as well as the slope and speed of the green. Two of the tournament participants made the putt and dozens of other competitors were within inches.
