Golfathon for ALS Update

On Thursday June 15th golf professionals Alec Hubert and Brice MacDermott participated in the Golf-A-Thon for ALS. They achieved both their goals for the day playing 14 rounds (252 holes) and so far have raised over $6,000 in support of the ALS Society of BC. Donations are still being accepted in the pro shop or online – DONATE HERE.

It was a grueling day starting about 4:10am and coming to a close around 8:40pm – 16.5 hours straight of golf! The average time for each round was about 1 hour 5 mins. They played the black, gold and white tees through the day with the average round yardage equaling 6255. Between the 2 of them they birdied every hole except #17 (nasty pin!).  Alec and Brice only made 1 quick pit stop to change clothes but otherwise played continuously throughout the day. Brice’s fit bit measured over 50,000 steps for the day, 164 flights of stairs and 972 active minutes (which is 16.2 hours!) – they were working hard out there!

Some interesting facts and stats from the day:
