Cordially invites you to:

The 100 Hole Hike

Monday, May 13, 2019

DEAL GOLF AND COUNTRY CLUB

Deal, NEW JERSEY

The Foundation is collecting monetary donations for the event provisions to include water, Gatorade, fruit, snacks, etc., if you would like to assist, please CLICK HERE.

The Outpost Foundation is once again hosting the Hundred Hole Hike (HHH), where participants walk and play 100 or more holes of golf in one day in order to raise money for various worthwhile charitable causes of their choice.

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 Deal Golf and Country Club as quickly as possible. The team's two best scores 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.

Format: 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 may 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.

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.

Deal Golf and Country Club: Another of New Jersey's ancient golfing organizations, with Donald Ross's 1915 appearance actually being a comprehensive expansion/redesign of a 19th century Lawrence Van Etten nine.  A short, often engaging track bisected by Monmouth Road, it retains virtually all of its Ross-era routing.

In 2000, golf architect Kelly Blake Moran was hired to restore many of bunkers and tees that had become worn from years of play. Changes were made to the 12th, 13th, and 15th holes, however the course generally plays as it did nearly one hundred years ago. Read more about Deal's history here.
