Each player drives their own cart. We play in twosomes. Ten holes per hour is your target to finish 100 holes by 5 p.m.
Although the score is not of primary importance, we will award prizes related to your score for finishing all 100 holes. Therefore, scorecards are being provided for you to turn in. All scores are “individual.” Your final score will be the total of the best you score on each hole throughout the day (gross and with handicaps) for an 18-hole total (e.g. if your best score on each hole is par, your final score is 72).
As a charity golf marathon, all players commit to raising or donating a minimum $2,500 for Hope Hospice. Raising your goal is easier than you think! Complete your personal page and send email requests directly from there to family, friends and/or co-workers. They will want to support you in your personal golf challenge for a great cause! (Please note: We ask that you please complete your fundraising by October 31 or, if you prefer at that time, you may pledge payments over the coming months. Please call Hope’s Development Office at (925) 829-8770 to arrange.)
Prizes will be awarded for the top fundraiser and for the longest ladies and men's drive on the first hole, closest to the pin on all five par threes (Holes 4, 6, 11, 14, 17) as well as for low net and low gross scores.
Play extremely READY golf, no practice swings. Just get up to your ball and hit. Traditional course etiquette still applies.
Each player will have their own cart. Carts will be switched out during the day as needed.
