2017 Marathon Progress
The Sun Country Golf Marathon returns in 2017! Golf professionals, amateurs and junior golfers commit to play 100 holes of golf in one day! Your pledge will help our efforts to the grow the game of golf for young people in New Mexico and El Paso, TX, as well as supporting other worthy causes. Proceeds from the Golf Marathon are shared between the Foundation and a charity of the marathoner’s choice.
In its first five years, committed volunteers made up of PGA Professionals, amateurs and junior golfers have raised nearly $200,000! Part of the proceeds have gone back to many deserving charities in New Mexico, Texas and across the country, while the balance has gone to the Sun Country Junior Golf Foundation, a joint charitable effort of the Sun Country PGA and Sun Country Amateur Golf Association. With the Junior Golf Foundation’s share, we are bringing a golf curriculum to P.E. classes in elementary and middle schools and funding other growth of the game and junior golf programs. This is only the beginning! Help us keep young people active in the game of a lifetime!
