We have helped language-impaired kids develop communication skills; victims of child-abuse emancipate repressed memories to begin healing from early childhood trauma. The horses teach emotionally disturbed individuals to control their temper and express their feelings appropriately. Kids with behavior disorders learn discipline from these natural behaviorists. These heroic animals have even been known to bring our riders back from the depths of utter despair to change their mind about committing suicide.

You Are Invited to a Truly Enjoyable Golf Experience

                The Bandit Golf Club is a grand place to play unforgettable golf. The course winds in and around Long Creek and Lake McQueeney and plays lovingly with the natural hazards these two bodies of water create.
                Significant elevation changes that lead to the sculpted fairways and perfect greens draw the golfer deeper and deeper into The Bandit's embrace. Tee boxes elevated like hawks' nests give the golfer a sense of power. It is these characteristics that likely contributed significantly to The Bandit being one of the highest rated golf clubs in Texas.
                This golfing experience will not only be a memorable affair but your participation in this fundraiser will allow some very special folks to continue their positive development.
