Anyone on here ever played 100 holes in a single day?

cvvorstcvvorst ClubWRX Posts: 3,202 ClubWRX

I'm playing in a charity event next week. A group of golfers are playing 100 holes in a single day. (The idea is to get people to donate a set amount of money per hole, with every single cent going to help trafficked women) I have played 36 holes many times, but I've never attempted anything more than that. Has anyone played four to five rounds of 18 holes? What can i expect for those last couple of rounds? Any tips for making it easier on my body? I expect I will be ready to collapse by the end!

    Yes I walked 146 holes in one day for a charity event a few years ago. The course was closed I was the only one out there and played 27 holes in the dark. No tips for making it easier on your body your gonna be dead tired after!

    I feel like I've just got out of the octagon of an mma fight after 36 don't even want to think about how 100 would feel

    146 holes walking is freaking amazing. I walked 72 once and that emptied the tank.

    72 was the most I ever did in a day, otherwise I've never done more than 36. Walked the first 18 and rode the remaining 54. I was much younger then. It probably also helped that the course was wide open for the middle 36 holes, was able to finish those 36 in about 4 hours with no waiting/sitting around in the sun. I would not plan on playing the day before or after the event for sure. I would pack my bag with a lot of small snacks to eat throughout the day. Find out what the on-course drinking water/beverage situation is going to be ahead of time. I would imagine they will have ample water/sports drinks for the participants on the course but you don't want to get there and find out they only have it at the clubhouse or it's $5 for a bottle of water and the course keeps the money.

    If there is going to be time to change between 18's, I'd probably bring extra socks and golf shoes, then change to fresh ones at least after the first and second 36. Especially if the course tends to be wet or you get a lot of morning dew in your area. It would be awful to play 72+ holes in wet socks and shoes.

    I played 126 holes in a charity event on June 21st (longest day of the year). We took carts and had a flag on our cart, so others on the course knew what we were doing and would let us through. I was tired, you actually don't care how you are playing, just advancing the ball as fast as you can. Enjoy the day, don't worry about how you play and know you are doing it for a worthy cause.

    I do it every year as a fundraiser for MS, usually we get to 100 and just end up doing the remaining 8 to make it 6 full rounds. 126 is the most we've played in a day.

    In Calgary around the solstice sunrise is about 0520 and civil twilight not till 2240 ish so more than 16 hours available to play. We are usually done the first 27 holes before the first tee time but we have a marshal part the seas in front of us as the day gets moving.

    Our rules are walk the first and last 9 holes ride the rest but I have walked the entire 100 twice.

    Bringing extra socks is the best advice I can give as I think about it more. Extra shoes would be good too but I did change my socks every few hours which was a great idea.

    I have a friend who is retired army ranger who does a sock change midday whenever there's some physical event. Says it feels like new feet.

    I did that twice for American Cancer Society in early 1990's. Had a cart for ourselves, course was closed on Mondays so we used that day for that fundraiser. Yes, we were whooped at end of the day but it's for a good cause.

    Walk 146 holes in a day? Wow, that is an amazing feat. I know my legs will quit on me after 3-4 rounds.

    I will be on a cart for the entire tournament!

    Right now it looks like the high is around 73 to 75 degrees. It should be 54 degrees when we start at 730am, so I may end up wearing pants and a long sleeve shirt under my Polo for the first round. Switch to shorts and a shirt for the last five to six.

    Great call regarding the change of clothes, and especially socks and shoes.

    I played 154 one day in a marathon for life charity outing. Everyone has their own cart and you hit and go with your 3 some, hit when ready, play through slower groups on the fly. No lineIng up putts or practice swings. Sun up til sun down. The people who said they would sponsor you at $5 a hole got a big surprise

  • GhostwedgeGhostwedge Members Posts: 653 ✭✭

    Walked 18 holes on 3 different courses during the longest summer day of the year for 20 straight years. This i can’t stress enough..... hydrate the day before and during your marathon golf. Your body will thank you the next day. Playing ALOT of golf and helping those less fortunate, sounds good. WTG

    I’ve done it and second the suggestion about changing shoes and socks. I’d change the socks after every round, it actually makes a huge difference. No old socks, either, you want as much cushion as you can get.

    Start hydrating two days beforehand. Even if it’s not that hot, the long day will dehydrate you and affect your energy level. You can’t just drink the day of and hope to feel ok.

    You have to move, no single shot really matters. No looking for balls, putts get one look, ready golf. We did it in June, close to the longest day of the year; it’s going to be pretty tight this early.

    A buddy played 100 holes in a day for a charity event. Each birdie was worth so much money and each eagle was a different amount. Cool idea!

  • ClambakeClambake Members Posts: 628 ✭✭

    Did 126 once for a Meals on Wheels charity fundraiser in Calabasas. We had carts so it wasn’t too bad except that except there was a heat wave and the temps were high 90’s that day. Probably drank 2-3 gallons of water that day! It was a fun event and I was in a foursome with a couple actors who were fairly well known at the time. I ended up raising the most money through pledges for number of holes played, and won tickets to a few show tapings.

  • elwhippyelwhippy Members Posts: 3,111 ✭✭

    45 holes was my most on a single day. My back took a while to recover. Good luck with the challenge and stay fuelled and hydrated.

  • GolfSRQGolfSRQ Members Posts: 45 ✭✭

    I did 100 holes for FCA a while back. It was fun, but a long day. We played multiple balls on the par 3s to speed things along. I didn’t want to play golf for a long time after that.

  • Radeon962Radeon962 ClubWRX Posts: 1,937 ClubWRX

    Most I ever played was 47 at Arcadia Bluffs back when the spring rate was $75. We played 18 in the AM, ate lunch, played an afternoon 18 and then scrambled until dark. I was a lot younger then as I would not even want to attempt that now.

    Now that is outrageous!

    Edit: read on past this. Wow a bunch of maniacs out there did this for charity. I am impressed. And tired just reading it. I am betting the Aleve bottle gets a good workout in that many holes.

    One year our DOG committed to playing 108 holes for the local high school. He showed up barely able to walk with a back issue. I played the first 18, opened the golf shop while our head pro played 36, I played the next 36 and our GM played the last 18. The local paper wrote an article about our Director of Golf and his efforts to raise money for the high school golf team. He wasn’t on the property for more than 20 minutes and all of the donations came from members that were asked by the golf shop staff. None of the people who actually played golf or raised funds were mentioned in the article.

    I used to play 54 during the summer in Palm Springs when I was younger and it took a toll. It got pretty hot so we took a beating and looked like boiled lobsters afterwards.

    I agree with others about a complete change of clothes and shoes (including underwear) and force yourself to drink water or Gatorade. Don’t forget to use and reapply sunblock and consider using sports tape on your fingers.

    Did it once in an annual tournament on a nearby course

    4 rounds from 4:30 am to 9 pm, NO carts allowed. New flights every round, gunstarts. Every round was allowed to last 3:30, then everyone should find their next gunstart. Lunch between rounds 2 and 3 and the hardest part was getting up and going again after that :wink:

    Shins hurt the most, it is a very hilly course.

    Dont see the point in racing the course in a cart, not playing for a score. :neutral:
