THE FIRST TEE OF GREATER WASHINGTON, DC's Fundraiser:

2016 YOUNG PROFESSIONALS COUNCIL GOLF-A-THON

BENEFITING: THE FIRST TEE OF GREATER WASHINGTON, DC

EVENT DATE: Jun 27, 2016

THE STORY:

LOCATION: Fort Belvoir Golf Club, 8450 Beulah Street, Fort Belvoir, VA 22060

THE GOLF-A-THON IS ORGANIZED BY THE YOUNG PROFESSIONALS COUNCIL AND ALL FUNDS RAISED BENEFIT THE FIRST TEE OF GREATER WASHINGTON, D.C.

WHAT IS A GOLF-A-THON?

Golfers independently pledge to play a certain number of holes in one day. Every golfer’s goal is to generate money for The First Tee of Greater Washington, D.C. by obtaining sponsors who will pledge money for every hole played.

Speed golf is the order of the day. Scores in a marathon are not important. However, every marathon golfer must play his or her ball into the cup on every hole. Some players will keep scores for every round and others will not.

The rules of golf and golf etiquette should be observed.
Junior golfers in The First Tee program who are “course ready” will participate in the Golf-A-Thon.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Participants in the golf marathon will not be charged an entry fee, provided that they raise at least $500 in pledges for participation.
