Sacramento Golf Marathon – “100 Holes of Golf”

2019 will mark the 6th annual Sacramento Golf Marathon which was initially created to help raise money to fund junior golf grants for the Morton Golf Foundation.

These grants provide financial support for families to help junior players learn to compete, develop skills, enhance core values and build lasting relationships through the game of golf.

On Monday, November 4, 2019, pull together your team and join us to play “100 Holes of Golf” to support the junior golf grant program for the Morton Golf Foundation. Start fundraising now for this wild and adventurous golf marathon!

In the Sacramento Golf Marathon, there are no rules. You simply need to tee off and get the ball in the hole. You can be as creative as your mind will allow. In the past, we have had some individuals play all 100 holes while others invited friends to help them play 100 ‘group’ holes. One foursome all teed off at the same time and then kept the ball moving until it dropped into the hole.

Help the Morton Golf Foundation raise money to support local juniors as they continue to grow with the spirit of golf.

3rd Annual Sacramento Golf Marathon “100 Holes of Golf” a Resounding Success

sgm-shamar-2016The Sacramento Golf Marathon was created to help raise money to fund junior golf grants given out to junior golfers between the ages of 8 – 18. These grants are financial support for families to help their children learn to complete, develop skills, enhance core values and build lasting relationships through the game of golf.

On Monday, November 14, 2016, 7 adults committed to playing “100 Holes of Golf” as they asked for donations and pledges from friends and families that would help support this mission. As the weeks passed, the e-mails were sent and donations came in and the financial total started to rise. In playing the “100 Holes of Golf” we make sure everyone knows there are no rules, no score and no lost golf balls. You just tee off and get the ball in the hole. The golfers all carry several experienced golf balls with them as they play and most golf balls are donated along the way.

sgm-girls-at-bing-2016When the junior golfers started to hear about the “100 Holes of Golf”, they and their families were eager to join in and play to help grow junior grants. The only stumbling block was the kids were in school on Monday, November 14. Quickly a second date was added for Saturday, November 12, 2016, for the juniors, their friends and families to play on a day they were available to help raise even more money to fund junior golf grants for 2017. Twenty three juniors and participants joined in on a beautiful sunny Saturday at the Bing Maloney Golf Course in Sacramento, CA! The excitement and speed was at an all-time high. As a spectator, I kept hearing as groups whizzed by that it was the perfect time to make a “hole in one” as they were playing on the E-9 at Bing Maloney Golf Course which includes several par 3’s.

We even had a couple of foursomes that decided to play their “100 Holes of Golf” at their own course and donate the proceeds back to the junior grant programs. Either way, the junior golfers are the true WINNERS!

If you would like to play in our next “100 Holes of Golf”, the date for 2017 is already set! Mark your calendars for Monday, November 13, 2017 and join us at the Haggin Oaks Golf Complex. Contact Rob Siebers at rjjsiebers@gmail.com for more information.

Thanks for believing in our mission as Morton Golf Foundation continues to enrich lives through the game of golf.

Picture from last year’s 100 Holes of Golf

A junior golf grant is defined as financial support for families to help their children 18 years old and younger to learn to compete, develop skills, enhance core values & build lasting relationships through the game of golf.

As each golfer tees off to play their “100 Holes of Golf” there are no rules. The only object is to get the ball in the hole. There are no lost balls. There is no score. There are no time frame. Everyone is out there to have fun and support junior grants. Each group that is out there will have a volunteer ahead of them to let golfers on the course know that the marathon golfers are coming through. Last year Tom Morton and Mike Woods played their 100 holes in record time. The golfer never waits. Just hit the ball and keep moving. Your 100 holes are done in no time. Feel free to add any players to your TEAM to help you play the 100 holes of golf.

The Sacramento Golf Marathon that day is played on the MacKenzie Golf Course, Arcade Creek Golf Course and The Putting Course near the driving range. Everyone is there as a fundraising event and to support Morton Golf Foundation.

Sacramento Golf Marathon Raises Money for Morton Golf Foundation

Sacramento Golf Marathon and “100 Holes of Golf”

Greg Perry plays catch up . . .

S G M Greg Parry 2015Last Monday, December 14, 2015, ten brave souls played over “100 Holes of Golf” to raise money for local youth, disabled and underserved through Morton Golf Foundation (MGF). Greg Perry, Morton Golf Foundation (MGF) Board Member, was unable to play on that day, so he chose December 22, 2015 to complete his journey of playing 100 holes of golf. On Monday, December 21, Sacramento received a considerable amount of rain so when Greg teed off on Tuesday, the course rules were cart path only. Carts were not allowed on the course all day which added a considerable amount of walking and time to Greg’s goal of completing his “100 Holes of Golf” challenge.

Greg Perry teed off with his son, Ryan, and their friend, Keaton Sutherland. Keaton is the son of another MGF Board member, Kevin Sutherland. Kevin drove the cart and cheered on the threesome through their 100 holes (see group photo attached). Another great friend, Steve Stoll, was their “wingman” and went out in front to make sure all was clear and to let other players on the course know that the marathon golfers were coming through.

When Jane Siebers, Morton Golf Foundation Administrator, asked Greg how long it took them to play 100 holes of golf, Greg answered that they played, “one minute quicker than Mike Woods and Tom Morton!”

In fact, Greg Perry issued a challenge for he and his son, Ryan, to play Mike Woods and Tom Morton in another 100 holes of golf on the side. Greg did say he would play Mike and Tom only if they could find a tee box since Mike and Tom would tee it up from the edge of the putting green and skip the tee boxes altogether when they played their 100 holes of golf the previous week. Mike Woods responded that, “we’d love to accept this challenge. I say the winning score is determined by adding up the number of holes played, plus the time it takes to play.” Who will be the real winner of this latest challenge? We all know the REAL winner is youth, disabled and underserved through this wonderful game of golf. The entire TEAM that played in the Sacramento Golf Marathon raised close to $26,000.00.

Everyone is excited and ready to play again next year.

UPDATE! Due to weather, the Sacramento Golf Marathon “100 Holes of Golf” has been rescheduled to Monday, December 14, 2015.

100 HOLES OF FUN

Whether you are a scratch golfer or high handicapper, it doesn’t matter, you can still participate in the Sacramento Golf Marathon. It is all about raising money for youth, disabled and the underserved!

The idea is to complete 100 holes of golf in as short of time as you can! And it is easy! You can participate as a single, or a twosome or a foursome. Be creative on how you complete the 100 holes! A single can play 100 holes, a twosome can play 50 holes each or alternate shots for 100 holes and of course a foursome could play 25 holes each. You determine how to complete the 100 holes! The average 100 hole round should take about 6 hours.

This event is all about charity and not about your score!

The entry fee is FREE! We ask that each individual or team raise a minimum of $500.00 to be donated to the Morton Golf Foundation (MGF). The MGF is a 501c3, non- profit foundation supporting the less fortunate in the Sacramento area.

Details:

The Sacramento Golf Marathon will begin at first light on November 16, 2015, on the Arcade Golf Course at the Haggin Oaks Golf Complex, located at 3645 Fulton Ave. Sacramento, Ca 95821
