"Home of the JGAA 100-hole marathon" The 2016 100-hole marathon held at Bear Creek raised over $41,000. Visit http://www.jgaa100.org/ for more information.
One of our most popular fundraisers is the Golf-A-Thon. This event is held on the Cub Course, and your group pays a flat fee to use the course for half-day (4 hours). Your players solicit small pledges for every hole they play, and can play the course an unlimited number of times during the four hours. It's great fun and has been very successful for a wide variety of charitable organizations.
Event organizers have told us it's easier to ask several people for small pledges than it is to ask a few for big donations. This format is perfect for schools, churches & synagogues, breast-cancer awarness groups, or any organization looking to fundraise.
What's a golf-marathon? For a flat fee the Cub Course is yours for up to 4 hours - and YOU decide how much money you want to make! With a 100 hole golf-a-thon, your golfers obtain per-hole sponsorships which quickly add up.
Do the math: You get 40 golfers (a typical field) - who each raise $100 to play (that's only 10 friends pledging .25 per hole X 50 holes). That's about $5,000! Subtract our fee, which ranges from $800 - $3,500 depending on the season, and the rest is pure profit for your cause.
Easily double, triple or quadruple those numbers. Food and beverage must be purchased separately. Call the golf shop today for more information (480) 883-8200.
