The Country Club of North Carolina Helps Junior Golfer from Ukraine

In the spirit of helping, The Country Club of North Carolina has made the lead donation in a funding campaign for a junior golfer from Ukraine named Mykhailo "Misha" Golod, who is coming to the United States. He played in the 73rd U.S. Junior Amateur Championship at CCNC last July and loved the experience as the first Ukrainian to participate in a USGA championship.


It was a good day for Mykhailo Golod, because he has lived to see another.

It is deep into the night of March 3 when Mykhailo, 15, videoconferences from Kyiv. The town has just suffered its fiercest bombardment since the unprovoked assault by Russian forces began and reports vary if the 40-mile long convoy of tanks and troops heading towards Ukraine’s capital has stalled or is progressing. It is sort of unbelievable, the boy says, the invasion of his country and the siege that threatens his city, but the constant shower of artillery, the deserted streets and crowded undergrounds, the sounds he does not want to discuss yet cannot forget … it is very, very real.
