Inaugural Pioneer Club Golf Marathon Set for August 16th

Fairfield, CT - The Sacred Heart University Pioneer Club will be hosting their inaugural Golf Marathon on Thursday, August 16th at Fairfield Wheeler Golf Course in Bridgeport.  Golfers are going to chase, hack, chip and putt thousands of golf balls from dawn to dusk at Fairchild Wheeler Golf Course with the goal of raising money for the Sacred Heart University Men's Golf Program.

All proceeds from the inaugural SHU Pioneer Club Golf Marathon will provide direct support for the Men's Golf Program. Our goal for this year is $2,000. The money generated from this event will help fund team travel for the 2012-13 year.

WHAT IS A GOLF MARATHON?

In the simplest terms: it is a fundraising event in which 40 golfers each play 100 holes or more in a single day. Before the event, the golfers, along with their partners, raise pledges from alumni, friends, family, neighbors, business associates, etc. on a per hole basis.

Each round is formatted so all golfers will successfully play 100 holes in one day.  The day will start early (7:30 – 8:00 am) and play will go all day (6:00 – 7:00 pm).  Food and beverages will be provided before, during and after play.  Golfers will play in foursomes, with everyone getting their own cart and playing "ready" golf.  

If you enjoy the game of golf and love the idea of spending a day on the course playing 100 holes of non-stop golf, then WE NEED YOU!

But there are other ways to help:

- If you are unable to participate as a golfer, but would be willing to help one of our golfers reach his/her goal, we could use your help as a partner.

- You can sponsor one of our golfers on a per hole basis.

Donating through the link below is simple, fast and totally secure. It is the most efficient way to support this fundraising effort.
