100 Hole Hike

Over the past year, I have been looking for ways where I can help make a more diverse and inclusive world. I am proud to say that on October 4, 2021, I am participating in the 100 Hole Hike at Sand Valley to support Youth on Course (YOC).

The price of a round of golf shouldn’t be a barrier for a young person who wants to play – that’s where Youth on Course comes in. They provide over 120,000 economically disadvantaged members ages 6 through 18 with access to play over 1,500 golf courses for $5 or less, giving them opportunities to learn lessons that can be taught in a way only a golf course can. And beyond affordable golf, they provide opportunities for young people to get the support they need to succeed through career prep, leadership and scholarship programs.

Play 100 holes of golf in one day. You may think “big deal”, but that equals over 5 ½ rounds of golf in less than 12 hours. I have an average of less than 7 minutes per hole, which means I will be speed walking or jogging a half-marathon while carrying my clubs (no carts or caddies for this challenge) on a tough course with big elevation changes. It is worth it, because giving our youth a chance to play golf means:

  • They are outside engaging in physical activity
  • They learn to play by the rules with integrity and interact with others
  • They have future educational and professional opportunities

If you would like to learn more, you can visit 100holehike.org. I will be posting live videos throughout the day on my Instagram; sharing my scorecards at the end of the round; and play rain, shine, or snow (remember, this is October in Wisconsin!)
