On Monday, January 12th, 7 golfers braved the fog and cold and played “100 Holes of Golf” for donations to benefit the Morton Golf Foundation.
The 7 players raised over $14,000.00 and their donations came from all around the globe. We are all so proud to say that these proceeds will be given to local non-profit charities to benefit youth, disabled and under served through the game of golf. Each twosome had a volunteer with them to help pave the way to let other on-course golfers know that the Sacramento Golf Marathon was coming through. These golfers were playing at the speed of light. Everyone teed off at Haggin Oaks at approximately 7:00 a.m. and the first golfers finished at 11:50 a.m. and the final golfers came in at approximately 2:30 p.m.
Tom Morton and Mike Woods were in the first group and on their final “100” hole they played FootGolf. The picture attached proves that!
I wasn’t there at 6:30 a.m. when they first met but I was with them along the way and also when several of them finished. The picture proves they enjoyed the camaraderie in the MacKenzie Sports Bar and Grille to tell their stories and to let us all know they would all do it again!
Golfers that participated included: Tom Morton, Mike Woods, Jose Mercado, Kathleen Foley, Cindy Anderson, Charlotte Wells and Leslie Lang. We couldn’t have done it without volunteers. Thank you to our volunteers – Fred Aubert, Sue Breece and Steve Stoll.
Big Thank You from Morton Golf Foundation!
