On June 12, 116 golfers joined us for our 7th annual Foursomes for Fatherhood Golf Classic at Shuttle Meadow Country Club in Kensington, raising $90,000 for fatherhood programs at The Village. Read about the event >

The Village provides new and expecting fathers with skills and support they need to be involved in their children’s lives.  Many of the young fathers helped by The Village have not had a father or even a mentor to serve as a positive role model.

Here is why children need fathers in their lives:

  • 66% of African American children, 35% of Latino Children and 27% of Caucasian children live apart from their fathers
  • 85% of children with behavioral problems come from fatherless homes
  • Fatherless children are twice as likely to drop out of school
  • Youths are more at risk of substance abuse without a highly-involved father

Shuttle Meadow Country Club, Kensington
This classic 18-hole golf course was designed by renowned architect (and twice British Open Champion), Willie Park, Jr.   Shuttle Meadow has been privileged to host such prestigious events as the U.S. Amateur Qualifying Tournament as well as numerous Connecticut State Golf Association Championships.

The March 19, 2015 issue of Golfweek ranked Shuttle Meadow among the “Best Classic Courses in America.”  Shuttle Meadow’s ranking at No. 182 (No. 6 in Connecticut and the only Hartford County course in the category) places it among the elite three percent of classic courses in America as defined by Golfweek Magazine – a most distinguished achievement given the relative anonymity Shuttle Meadow has enjoyed since the club’s founding in 1899. The category includes some 6,000 courses built before 1960.
