Desert Duffers Provides Much-Needed Relief

Thom Sharples and Steve Shapiro

The Quail Creek Men’s Nine-hole Golf Association (The Duffers) raised $1,150 from 79 members as a donation to the Community Food Bank of Green Valley. Mike Senatra, president of The Duffers, sent out a request to the membership on Monday before the tournament on Tuesday. Mike stated, “We are seeing some really tough times in our community, so I think we can help. That’s why we will make a donation collection for the Community Food Bank of Green Valley.” The response was overwhelming.

From 2019, the Duffers have donated more than $10,000 to local charities. The Duffers is a men’s nine-hole golf association in Quail Creek, with approximately 300 members. Our motto is, “Golf Is a Game, Have Fun.” All skill levels are welcome to join the Quail Creek Desert Duffers Men’s Nine-hole Golf Association. To join our fun nine-hole team events on Tuesdays, go to
