Hundred Hole Hike
About the event
A marathon, extreme golf event that raises funds for people living with Acquired Brain Injury (ABI).
The annual genU Hundred Hole Hike (HHH) supported by the TAC, sees golfers challenging themselves by attempting to play 100 holes of golf at The Sands, Torquay.
This event provides funds for programs at the ABI Clubhouse – a weekly support group that creates social connections and gives participants support as they rebuild their daily routines.
This event has been running since 2013 and over the past six years, tens of thousands of dollars have been raised to support people living with a brain injury and their families in the Geelong Region. Currently, this program has no other source of funding, so the Hundred Hole Hike is an incredibly important event to support this initiative.
How it works
As dawn breaks on Monday 14th January 2019, while most people are still sound asleep, a group of keen golfers will be teeing off at The Sands, Torquay and starting the mammoth challenge of playing 100 holes of golf in one day – without using a cart – for the genU Hundred Hole Hike (HHH).
You can chose to play the 100 holes of golf as an individual or you can enter as a team.
The HHH Team Challenge sees two options available to players.
Option one sees a team of four players all take on the hundred holes but they will play as two pairs and share the shots. They will play the foursomes format and each pair will play one ball between them, alternating each shot.
Option two also involves a team of four players, however the four team members split into two pairs and share the six rounds of golf between them, playing three rounds each. The first pair tees off at dawn and play the foursome format for three rounds, before handing over to the second pair to finish the last three rounds.
Each participant pays a one-off registration fee of $200 and is then responsible for raising a minimum of $500 in sponsorship for the event.
