Hope 100 Golf Marathon is a unique charity fundraising event. Proceeds help support Hope Hospice’s patient-care services and grief support center, as well as a range of free educational programs for the local public. Last year, community donations made it possible for Hope to care for 776 patients with a life-limiting illness and to provide grief support and family caregiver education to 1,369 individuals. This exclusive event is limited to 36 players, so register today to secure your spot!

Castlewood Country Club, Valley Course
We start at sunrise, and the event has a quick pace of play. No practice swings — just drop your ball and play. Most people complete 18 holes every two hours to finish by the 5 p.m. cutoff.
Each player drives his or her own cart, and we play in twosomes. You may register as an individual and attempt the 100 holes on your own; or, split the challenge among friends and each takes on the number of holes they're comfortable with.
Read the full rules here.
Although score is not of primary importance, we do keep score and award prizes for certain achievements. New this year are three Hole-in-One prizes including $75,000 cash from our sponsor FH Dailey Chevrolet to be used toward the purchase of a new vehicle from the dealership in San Leandro!
Your registration is a display of your heartfelt generosity to raise a minimum of $2,500 in support toward Hope’s mission of care and service to our community. Your green fees, cart rental, three meals, and course beverages are all covered by your registration fee. There are no additional costs.
In the past, some players have chosen to pay for their own registration. Others have sought sponsorship from friends, family, or their employer to cover the $2,500 minimum. (Support over $2,500 is warmly received.)
Hope Hospice is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization (Tax ID 94-2576059). The tax-deductible portion of your registration cost is your total donation less the value of player's benefits, which is $490 this year. Only players who self-pay need to consider the player's benefit value; if someone is sponsoring your play, the sponsor's entire donation is tax deductible to the extent the law allows. Please consult with your tax professional on your specific situation. Email our support team with questions or call (925) 829-8770 Monday–Friday, 9 a.m.–5 p.m.
