Third Annual Junior Golf Marathon

The 3rd Annual Junior Golf Marathon was Held on November 3, 2018, on the Express 9-Hole Golf Course at Bing Maloney

The weather today under a perfectly blue sky started out cool but quickly became great golf weather near 80 degrees.

Nineteen juniors, families & friends gathered at the Express-9 golf course at Bing Maloney to play “100 Holes of Golf”. For the past two months the juniors have been gathering donations continuing to educate their donors letting them know all proceeds go directly back to junior grants.

This is one time of the year where the juniors play golf for “fun” & not for competition. The goal is to tee off & get it in the hole. There is no lost ball, no score, only “fun”. As I went around the course cheering the players on I found them playing their own fun games among their groups. The juniors had the opportunity to win golf balls & hats as they played.

The juniors, families & friends ended the event sitting around a huge table telling golf stories, giving their wish list on where to attend college & just asking “what’s the next way they can help Morton Golf Foundation?”

This generation of golfers is exactly what this sport needs. We can’t wait to fast forward 10 years to hear the success stories of our Morton Golf Foundation juniors.
