The Outpost Foundation
Cordially invites you to:
The 100 Hole Hike
Monday, May 15, 2017
Brookville Country Club
Old Brookville, New York
The Outpost Foundation is teaming up with the One Divot Foundation and the 100 Hole Hike (HHH), a national network of golf marathons where participants walk and play 100 or more holes of golf in one day in order to raise money for various worthwhile charitable causes.
The Foundation is collecting donations for the event provisions to include water, Gatorade, fruit, snacks, etc., if you would like to assist, please CLICK HERE.
Format: For the 100 Hole Hike, each two-person team will choose their own charity (any charity big or small) and then reach out to their network of friends and family to collect pledges. These pledges can be a lump sum or per-hole donation. Players must walk a minimum of 54-holes but everyone is encouraged to walk 100 or more in order to raise as much money as possible for their charity.
Starting as early as possible on Monday morning (approximately 5:30 AM), two-person teams will play alternate shot as they make as many trips around Brookville as quickly as possible. The team's best score on each hole will be used to determine the team’s final tally. The Outpost Foundation will make a donation to the Net and Gross Division winners' charities of choice.
We recommend that teams play out of one bag and even consider a reduced number of clubs. The course will be set up short with limited walks back to tees.
One player will tee off on the odd holes and the other the evens. After every round, this order will be switched. One change from the traditional alternate shot format is that the second person to putt on any hole will finish the hole. (Example: Player A hits his approach on the green, Player B putts and misses, Player A then putts until the hole is finished.) Each hole must be completed regardless of score.
Venue: Brookville CC - Among the lesser-known of Seth Raynor’s Long Island designs, the Brookville CC was created on a smaller scale than some of its more illustrious neighbors, and began with nine holes in 1922 before adding its second nine, two years later. Though its routing remained intact, the course underwent numerous changes to Raynor’s bunkering over the years, leaving it largely devoid of his unique flavor, prior to a 1996 restoration by Gil Hanse. Hanse did not recreate all of Raynor’s hazards, and actually added a few new bunkers of his own, but the net result was a far more Raynor-like track upon which several of the standard replicas appear. Chief among these are the 243-yard 3rd (a modified Biarritz missing two original bunkers), the 353-yard 9th (played to a Punchbowl green), the bunker-ringed 145-yard Short 11th, and the 195-yard 16th, an attractive reverse Redan. But there are also some notable originals present, including the 354-yard 2nd (with green tucked right, behind the trees and adjacent to some wild bunkering), the 306-yard 4th (a sharp dogleg left played to a post-Raynor green complex), the 437-yard dogleg right 6th and the 437-yard 12th, where Hanse added a Principal’s Nose bunker complex to inject some life to the tee ball.
