OJG 100 Hole Marathon - a Great Success!

The inaugural OJG 100 Hole Marathon took place on Saturday, April 15, 2017 hosted by Columbia Edgewater CC in Portland.  A total of 16 junior golfers each completed 100 holes of golf on the Mason Course!  Play began at 7:40am and the last group completed their 100th hole at 6:20pm.  It was a full day of golf!  Junior players ranged in age from 10 - 18 and each junior golfer collected donations to support future Oregon Junior Golf Team Competitions as well as the access program, Youth on Course.  Almost $17,000 was raised as a group!  Thank you to everyone who supported the junior golfers and generously made a donation through the 100 Hole Marathon!

The day was filled with excitement as 5 Hole-in-Ones were recorded!  Congratulations to Jackson Kennon (Hole #6), Ethan Tseng (Hole #7), Oliver Nielsen (Hole #3), Ashley Zhu (Hole #1) and Victoria Gailey (Hole #1).  Perhaps most exciting was Victoria Gailey's Ace as it came on her final 100th hole!  In addition to the five aces, a total of 289 birdies were recorded among the 16 talented junior golfers!  Many juniors teamed up with parents or friends as their caddie for the 100 Hole Hike.  

Thank you to Columbia Edgewater CC Members and Staff for hosting and for their support of Oregon Junior Golf!  Photos from the day may be viewed on the OGA Flickr Account.
