OEF 100 HOLES OF GOLF MARATHON
MONDAY MAY 24, 2021
ELYRIA COUNTRY CLUB FROM 6:30 AM - WHENEVER
(FREE ENTRY: Limited spots: 36 Golfers Only - Please see Player Commitment Below)

Are you up for the challenge? Consider this your invitation to the golf event unlike any other. Don’t call it a tournament. This day-long marathon takes oomph as you putt, chip, and drive your way through 100 holes. Tee off at dawn and settle in for the time of your life. Because really, is there a better way to spend your day than golfing sun-up to sun-down?

This 100 Holes of Golf Marathon is presented by the Orange Effect Foundation to help raise funds for children who desperately need speech technology or speech therapy services. OEF directly delivers services to children in over 30 states. But there is so much need out there, especially during this challenging time. 100% of the proceeds from this event will go directly to scholarships for these children (each golfer will be supporting a different child). 

Throughout the event, golfers are treated to exclusive access to the Elyria Country Club (Elyria, Ohio), golf cart, light breakfast plus two boxed meals and beverages! After you sink that 100th cup, join the rest of the crew social distancing at the clubhouse for a short thank you honoring all of the day’s participants.

So do you have the spirit to go all 100 or will you stick to putt-putt? (Minimum of 30 golfers needed to play).

SOME RULES TO MAKE 100 HOLES IN A DAY HAPPEN:

  • Score is not of primary importance today, it's all about the 100 holes! (However, there might be prizes, so you will be given a scorecard to keep score on the first 90 holes).
  • Play extremely READY golf, but traditional course etiquette still applies.
  • Two-person scramble.
  • Relay teams can only have two people on the course at one time.
  • Allow only seven minutes on average to complete each hole, (you should be completing 18 holes every two hours). If you are falling behind an event representative may ask you speed up play or pick up and move on to the next hole.
  • Maximum bogey per hole.
  • No Lost Ball penalties. Don’t search for lost balls! If you don’t drive right up to it, simply drop a ball near where you expected it to be and play on without any penalty.
  • No Out of Bounds penalties. If you hit a ball OB, simply drop a ball within two club lengths of where the ball went OB and play on without penalty.
  • No Water Hazard penalties. If you hit a ball in the water hazard, simply drop a ball within two club lengths of where the ball went in the hazard and play on without penalty.
  • Don’t pull the flag sticks.
  • Any putt within the flag stick length from the hole is considered "good".
  • No more than two putts per green.
