Brian Schlottmann with Mobility Impaired Golf Association said 115 kids registered for the event at Lake Oswego Public Golf Course.

“The golf course has over 600 eggs,” Schlottmann said.

Smiling kids raced across the golf course as the hunt began.

“I think it’s great. We’ve been I think 3 years now,” Jeff Zeman who was at the Easter egg hunt with his son, Chip, said. “It means a lot to the kids and the families to be able to do something like this. It’s huge.”
