Due to the size of our event last year (208 Golfers!) and having participation at every hole from our vendors (around 40) we have decided to cap the total number of golfers this year so we can provide the best possible experience for our golfers and vendors. With the food, drinks, and participation at every hole, coupled with that high number of people caused challenges for streamlined gameplay last year. We reached our goal of having one of the Largest attended Golf Tournaments in the area, and we are re-focusing on the gameplay. We appreciate everyone that has and will support our tournament. Our commitment to you is to have a one of a kind golf tournament and experience! Please sign up as soon as possible to avoid waiting lists.

The mission of The Yellow Door is to give support to individuals with autism and their families while promoting student leadership and involvement in the local community. The name, "The Yellow Door" comes from an individual with autism that many years ago that liked doors. When asked what their favorite color for a door would be if they could pick, they answered: "yellow, because it's like opening a door of sunshine." That positive image is something that The Yellow Door hopes to foster. The mission of the Chico State Autism Clinic is to promote the sensory, motor, communicative, and cognitive skills of individuals with autism through a multi-sensory approach to learning.
How does Autism effect the community?
• Autism now affects 1 in 68 children
• Boys are four times more likely to have autism than girls
• About 40% of children with autism do not speak. About 25%–30% of children with autism have some words at 12 to 18 months of age and then lose them. Others might speak, but not until later in childhood
• Autism greatly varies from person to person (no two people with autism are alike)
• The rate of autism has steadily grown over the last twenty years
• Autism is the fastest-growing developmental disorder, yet most underfunded
• A 2008 Danish Study found that the mortality risk among those with autism was nearly twice that of the general population
• Children with autism do progress – early intervention is key
• Autism is treatable, not a hopeless condition
