Welcome to PlayYellow

Why Yellow?

Play Yellow is a movement founded by Jack and Barbara Nicklaus in an effort to raise money through the golf industry for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals across the country. This initiative is widely supported in the golf community and boasts the support of well-known golf entities, such as the PGA TOUR, Callaway, PGA TOUR Superstore and more! Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals of Greater St. Louis' (CMN-STL) signature Play Yellow event, Swing Fore Miracles, is a tournament at Topgolf focused on bringing the St. Louis business community together with other CMN-STL supporters. Colleagues will come together to have fun, and compete against other teams to change kids' health and change the future.
