Annual 100 Hole Golf Marathon
THANK YOU to everyone who joined us or sponsored a golfer for our 8th Annual Firs Golf Marathon on May 23, 2016!
The Firs Golf Marathon is an annual event (at the Bellingham Golf & Country Club) that allows our participants to connect with dozens of friends, family members and acquaintances, in an effort to support the ministries of The Firs in a fun and creative manner. By combining the love of a game, the craziness of playing it all day long with a wide network of people – a substantial amount of money can be raised in a unique and relatively short period of time. Golf, therefore, took on a new meaning as every swing of the club directly helps us provide a quality camping experience for thousands.
How Did it Work?
Golfers teed off at dawn with the goal of playing 100 or more holes of golf in ten hours. The rules were modified in order to allow for a fast pace. Each golfer prior to the event was equipped with forms to help them raise $1000, $2000, $2500 or even more. Golfers sponsored themselves (entry fee) for $1.25 per hole, gathered their sponsorship team from friends and family, found a caddie to join them, and had a blast out on a beautiful golf course with others doing the same thing.
HOW DO I PAY MY GOLFER PLEDGE?
