Gary Albrecht

Originally from Minnesota, I have lived and played in Colorado since 1995. I have played golf for over 50 years, fairly well for a small part of that time. I love everything about the game: the physical challenge, scenery, camaraderie, and mental demands. I am an attorney who started his career teaching and coaching at the high school level. My true passion is working with kids. In this regard I have been fortunate to be on the board of the Colorado Golf Association, and I help train and mentor caddies as part of the Solich Caddie and Leadership Academy. It is rewarding beyond words. I am walking in honor of my best friend and wing man, Tom Collins, who succumbed to his five-year battle with colon cancer in January of 2017. His two boys, Thompson and Patrick, attended Camp Comfort, a camp run by the Double H Ranch, my beneficiary, for children of cancer patients. Tommy loved Ballyneal! I'm really looking forward to being a part of this great event where I can combine my passion for golf with helping others in my own small way.

About 42 hours until I hit the first tee shot on my way to 128 (or more) holes at Ballyneal. Thanks to everyone who has pledged.

"Everybody think one . . . think one"

On October 21, 2016, I was golfing with my wingman, Tom Collins, and two other great friends at the Glens Falls Country Club, a 100+ year old Donald Ross-designed course in upstate New York.

Countdown to Ballyneal: Two Weeks Out

Two weeks out from HHH 2017 at Ballyneal. Pledges are growing nicely, but more dollars are needed to send more kids to summer camp at the Double H Ranch.

My daughter took photos of at least part of our day at Ballyneal on Monday, June 20. (Her camera got too heavy to carry throughout.) I hope you enjoy them--I did!
