The Fighting Hunger Games is a “longest day of golf event” in which 36 golf warriors will each play 100 holes of golf in one day. Each participant will have their own cart. There will be 18 twosomes teeing off in a shotgun format at 7:00 AM. Based on our history with this event, it will take 9-10 hours to complete in ideal weather conditions.
There will be one, two-person team per hole. The idea is to play “hurry-up” golf, so hit away when ready. Three-foot gimmies will help speed up play. Golfers will play 5 complete rounds plus 10 holes. Let faster players play through. Don’t spend any time looking for lost balls.
We play, rain or shine.

Food, drink and music will be provided until all have had their fill. We will also provide safe travel for those that imbibe too much to drive.
Proceeds to benefit Café Liberty, a culinary job training program for Armed Forces veterans and their families – at no cost. $5,000 of the proceeds will be donated directly to a local family determined to be in dire financial need. This donation will be made in the memory of Elizabeth Fogarty.
