Modeled after the highly successful Golf Marathon held by peer community foundations, the event is limited to just 50 registrants who commit to raising a minimum of $3,000 in pledges. Registered golfers will hit the links just after the dew comes off the grass and play the course five times in one day, playing the par three holes twice for a total of one hundred holes.

Many special features have been implemented to make this event a great day of “formula one” golf for participants. The Golf Marathon will take over the Legends Course for the day so participants will not be held up waiting for other foursomes. Registration is limited. Golfers will not need to stop and look for lost balls as they will be supplied with plenty of extras. All food and beverages are provided during day as golfers fly by the halfway and club house. Each participant can bring one caddie to ride in their golf cart who can help throughout the day.

After the event is over, aside from having the best golf story ever the next day, participants will have the satisfaction of knowing that all funds raised in pledges will support the Community Foundation of Mississauga, a registered charitable public foundation. The Foundation works to build endowed funds creating a sustainable source of grants for the many charitable programs and services that go into making Mississauga a great city for everyone. Participants and those who generously support them with a pledge will know that they are helping to support programs and services in health, education, children’s needs, arts, culture, heritage, human services, anti-poverty initiatives, the environment and so much more.

“If you are like me and think our winters are far too long and the golf season is over way too soon, then the Golf Marathon is a great way to get more golf. And we have timed it just right so that participants will be able to enjoy one last incredible day while the season is at its best.” says Steve Offer, Chair of the Golf Marathon. “We have a great group of registrants already and spots are filling up. But we believe that Mississauga golfers will come through to support their community and we will have a fully booked day, so people who are interested should call soon to register.”
