“The Ben Cox 108″

Just wanted to put in a quick plug for a good cause. On June 20th, Jim Colton will be running a golf marathon at Ballyneal Golf Club–he hopes to play at least six full rounds (108 holes) before running out of daylight. Colton’s golf binge is to help offset the medical bills of club caddie Ben Cox, who was badly injured in a skiing accident this spring. So far, over $24,000 has been raised, but every little bit helps.

Many of the best clubs and courses in the country have generously donated rounds (see below for the list as of June 1) in what is shaping up to be a fantastic raffle–tickets are $50 each. For more details, visit Jim’s website.

1. One foursome at Ballyneal, going to the person who most accurately guesses the amount of strokes over par it will take Jim to complete 108 holes (only one guess per number, so if your first guess is taken, you will be assigned the next closest number).
2. Another foursome at Ballyneal
3. A foursome of golf at Dismal River in Mullen, NE
4. A foursome of golf at The Kingsley Club in Kingsley, MI
5 & 6. Two pairs of golf shoes from TRUE Linkswear – one pair of TRUE Tours and one pair of their new TRUE Stealths, to be raffled off individually
7. A threesome of golf and lunch with a member host at Hudson National Golf Club in New York
8. Two nights accommodation at Fairmont St Andrews, full Scottish breakfast each morning and 18 holes of golf on The Torrance or The Kittocks
9. A threesome of golf and lunch at the Olympic Club (Lake Course), site of the 1955, 1966, 1987, 1998 and 2012 U.S. Opens. Also includes round at par-3 Cliffs Course, time and schedule permitting.
10. A threesome of golf and caddies at Skokie Country Club
