Golf is the game for life. In order to not only sustain but also grow the game, we need to have more youth have the opportunity to play. The biggest barrier to getting young people on the course is the cost to play. Youth on Course is the "bridge" from learning the fundamentals to truly playing the game. $5 per round is all it costs for the youth to play each round. But the Youth on Course Foundations must cover the additional cost to the facility --- make up the difference if you will. On average $7 to $8 per round. The 100 Hole Hike is a great way to fund raise if I can get the support of others. 50 cents a hole would be great, $1.00 per hole (my personal pledge) would be even better. We are going international by holding our hike in the Republic of Ireland at Newcastle West Country Club. Four of us will be teeing it up at dawn - Cathal, Gearoid, Barry and me. I have been working out at the Killarney Sport & Leisure Club on an Elyptical trying to get in shape for this Hike. I anticipate some achy joints, muscles and blisters on my feet. But it is all worth it for a great cause. I hope you consider supporting my campaign by making a pledge. At a minimum, send positive energy my way to help me complete my 100 Hole Hike in support of this great program and the greatest game ever, Golf!
