What is a Golf-A-Thon
A Golf-A-Thon is a unique event where individuals and teams raise money based on pledges received towards the amount of holes they can play in a 12-hour period. Golfers can play anytime between 7:00 am and 7:00 pm on the day of the event or they can accumulate 108 holes throughout the month of October leading up to the event. Pledges can be made per hole or as a one-time donation.

Does my score matter?
No way! Who wants to slow down, count, and then write a score on a scorecard? Remember: our goal is to play fast, so you’re only responsible for keeping track of the number of holes you play (and we have a team to help you!)
Presenting Sponsor – $5,000
Our golfers play at a “break-neck” speed thus requiring the golf course to be completely open and free of weekend warriors! Our Presenting Sponsor receives on-going recognition from First Tee —Fort Worth and their logo on our event webpage and a banner in the staging area.
Player Hospitality Sponsor – $1,000
Playing 12 hours of golf is hard work, so we want our participants to feel pampered. We provide each with a goodie-bag that will keep them motivated throughout the day as well as breakfast, lunch and dinner.
