MV Purchasing partnered with The First Tee once again to host Marathon Golf, which raises money to allow kids under 17 yrs of age to play golf for FREE at all 4 public golf courses.
On March 19th, the 3rd Annual Marathon Golf Event was held at MacDonald Park GC. As of today, the event raised $22,000.00 with more checks coming in.
The event is broken into 2 catagories:
1. The 1st catagory, players can play sun up to sun down. These players get sponsors that will pay the player for the number of holes he or she played on that day. Corey Novascone & Eric Johnsen played 109 holes. Others played 105 holes.
2. The 2nd catagory, a team of 4 players can pay an entry fee to play 18 holes. The low score wins the traveling trophy seen below & bragging rights for the year.
This year my team won the traveling Marathon Trophy by scoring -10. My team consisted of my nephew Kyle Wright & Dale Goter (photoshop far right). Just in case you couldn’t tell he wasn’t standing next to me. LOL
