America’s Largest Golf Marathon!
Sprint for Scholarships
The Golf Marathon, the Ouimet Fund’s oldest continuously run event, has been scheduled and played in each of the last 27 years and has grown to be the largest event of its kind in the country.
Each year since 1993, committed golfers have come together to play as many holes as possible to raise money for scholarships, and these necessary funds account for a huge portion of Ouimet Scholarships given out annually.
While for 27 years it was a Golf Marathon, in 2020 the event will be a Sprint for Scholarships to raise money for Ouimet Scholarships! Participants will represent different courses from around the state, and each will play as many holes as physically possible in one hour at their respective course. It is a different type of endurance challenge, but one that will allow everyone to remain safe and not congregate as a large group at one venue.
The first Ouimet Golf Marathon was held at Stow Acres Country Club in 1993, raising $120,000 in its inaugural year. Over the last 27 years, the event has grown annually and has continued to attract new golf course and club teams, as well as dozens of individuals fundraising from their personal networks. This event is the second largest on The Fund’s calendar and is critical to the growth of need-based scholarships. Since its inception, more than $7 million has been raised and over 142,000 holes have been played. The Ouimet Golf Marathon remains the leading fundraising Golf Marathon in the United States.
