BLOOMINGTON – The Wheeler Mission Center for Men will host a 100 Holes for the Homeless golf tournament, presented by BSM Groups LLC, at the Golf Club at Eagle Pointe on Thursday, August 25 to go towards benefitting the shelter.
This non-traditional golf event has individuals and teams attempt to play 100 holes of golf in a day. There is no registration fee but individuals and teams are asked to raise a minimum of $1,000 each by reaching out to their family, friends, or colleagues. Registration is open until Wednesday, August 24th.
Each golfer and caddy will have a fundraising page, and a computer link to that page will be provided for use with email solicitation. Golfers pay no greens fee to play but commit to raising a minimum of $1,000 through their fundraising.
- All golfers and caddies will get their own cart
- The recommended format for play is called “Mulligan Golf” On every shot on par 4’s and par 5’s a player will take a Mulligan, and hit two shots. Players will hit two Mulligan’s by playing 3 shots on par 3’s. The player will then pick their best shot.
- All putts within 3 feet are considered “Gimmies.” This format is to encourage enjoyable and speedy play.
- At 5:00 pm there will be a brief closing program with food provided.
