 Laurinburg Institute Golf-A-Thon


It’s a day of golf to raise serious money for the Laurinburg Institute Hurricane Building Recovery Fund and the General Scholarship Fund. It is for the golfer who wants to and can play 54 or more holes of golf in a single day. Can’t or do not want to play 54 holes in one day? No problem. Play 9, 18, 27, you get the picture.  Play any course on any registered date. Just register at Golfer Registration and get golfing.



Patricia Williams, Chairman 


 Each golfer will attempt to play 54 holes in a single day. Several changes in the format of the game are made to speed up the play…

  • Golfers may hit multiple balls on par threes, and each ball counts as one hole played.
  • Play “ready golf.”
  • No looking for lost balls, OB’s etc. Merely drop another ball on the course at the nearest point where the ball was lost, or went out of bounds, and keep stroking.
  • Whenever your score on a hole reaches bogey, pick up, score the hole as completed, and move on to the next hole.
  • Play any hole, or series of holes, in any order as many times as you want.
  • On the green, any putt inside one putter length is a “gimme.”


Player Requirements:

 Take a day off from work and play golf.

  • Recruit sponsors to contribute through donations or pledges.
  • Each player is requested to raise a minimum of $1000.
  • Send each of your sponsors a thank you letter, giving the number of holes played, along with the number of eagles, birdies and holes-in-one made.
  • Have fun.  


The Golf-A-Thon is over whenever the first of the following three events occurs: it’s too dark to see, the last player is no longer standing, or the golf course closes for the night.


 Don’t play golf or can’t play all day? No problem! You can sponsor a golfer, secure sponsors, feed or water golfers or play as many holes as you can.
