The Village Greens Golf Course professionals — Jess Roper, Elizabeth Davis, and Justin Newton — played a combined 392 holes in a single day on June 22, the equivalent of over 21 18-hole rounds in support of Folds of Honor and Junior Golf.
On the second longest day of the year, Village Greens Golf Course hosted its first ever Golf Marathon Fundraiser. The event raised more than $2,750 for junior golf in the Flathead and Folds of Honor, an organization that supports families of those who have been killed or disabled while on active military duty.
Pledges were made per hole or per birdie, and numerous flat-rate donations were collected as well. Roper, the course’s head professional, played the most holes, teeing off at 5:10 a.m. and finishing his 176th hole in the dark after 11 p.m.
The three professionals made a combined 71 birdies and five eagles.
Donations are still being accepted. Contact the Village Greens Golf shop at 752-4666 to help the group meet its goal of raising over $3,000.
