What is a Golf Marathon?

This year, Central Jacksonville Young Life will be holding a Golf Marathon to raise money for the local Central Jacksonville Young Life Ministry and have a ton of fun doing it. We think you’ll agree—raising funds for a great ministry like Young Life while golfing is a great combination! This is not a typical golf tournament; rather than simply playing one round, you’ll agree to a day on the course including two rounds of golf, hence the title, “Golf Marathon.”

It all starts with people like you committing to the fundraising minimum of $500 in pledges from friends, family, local businesses, your bank account, or any combination of the above. While this seems like a lot at first, we are sure that with a little work (and some help from us) you’ll have no problem making it, especially when people hear about the great organization you are golfing for!!

We have reserved the Hidden Hills Country Club Golf Course FOR THE ENTIRE DAY!

Join us Monday, September 26th for a fun day. Please consider recruiting other friends to join us as well.

The Goal... To raise money to support our ongoing work with kids in the Central Jacksonville YL Area. Our total goal for this year’s Marathon is $10,000. Each Golfer agrees to a fundraising minimum of $500.

How Do I Raise $$ To Play?

  • Our Online Format makes it easy to Register and shoot a ‘Giving’ link to your network of friends and family via email, Facebook, Twitter, etc. in order for them to give electronically to YOUR personal fundraising page.

  • Gather people to pledge a flat rate for you to play. Five friends who sponsor you at $100 is $500!

    • Find people who will give you a dollar amount for every hole you golf. Get as many holes in during the day to make the most out of these sponsorships.

    • Simply write a check (This is the easiest way to play...)

    • Does your business give to charitable organizations? Ask your business to consider sponsoring you or the event: We have Corporate Hole Sponsorships available as well as opportunities for businesses to sponsor part or all of our Golf Marathon.

    Getting Ready... Start talking to friends and family now—and ASK BIG! The goal for everyone is to raise a minimum

    of $500, but when you reach $500, don’t stop there! Challenge yourself to make the most of your opportunity to raise money for the local Young Life Area. Ready...Set...Fore...!!!
