Sacramento Junior Golf Marathon
“100 Holes of Golf”
Bing Maloney Golf Course
November 7, 2020
This is Morton Golf Foundation’s 6th year hosting the Sacramento Junior Golf Marathon where each foursome played “100 Holes of Golf”. Several participants included junior golfers that in the past have been winners of our Junior Golf Development Grants. Also, joining them were several juniors that just wanted to join in the fundraising & play in the event. What a powerful way of junior golfers paying it forward.
“Good Day Sacramento”, KMAX-TV Sacramento’s local morning show met 46 junior golfers including their family & friends to do a live interview on air in their 9:00 a.m. hour. Kenny Castro kicked off the interview telling us why he plays in this event even though he has never applied for a Junior Golf Development Grant. Kenny participates because it supports the juniors he plays in tournaments with and builds stronger friendships. Then Nikki Chindavong told us she is very lucky to have received a Junior Golf Development Grant for the past 5 years. This has given her multiple opportunities to play in more golf tournaments & travel outside of our Northern California area.
The fun continued on the golf course where the players had the opportunity to win several prizes. See the picture attached where on Hole #7, Par 3 each foursome teed off at the same time! In between nervous laughter the winner closest to the hole won a sleeve of golf balls.
