Youth on Course announces 2023 100 Hole Hike schedule

Hikers play 100 holes in one day, in golf’s ultimate charitable challenge.

(MONTEREY, Calif.)Youth on Course – the non-profit organization providing youth with access to life-changing opportunities through golf – has announced its 2023 100 Hole Hike Schedule. Youth on Course supporters become Hikers to take on the challenge of playing and walking 100 holes of golf in one day, while raising millions of charitable dollars for youth access to golf. "The 100 Hole Hike offers our supporters the perfect balance between the struggle of successfully completing the physical and mental challenge of our Hikes, and the satisfaction of giving the gift of access to our youth members," says Jeff Clark, Chief Development Officer for Youth on Course. "The 100 Hole Hike Initiative has become the most impactful fundraising tool for Youth on Course to support our members."

This year’s list includes returning favorite hike sites The Hay at Pebble Beach in CA, The Baths at Kohler in WI, Trinity Forest in Dallas, TX and Cloud 9 in Las Vegas, NV. Exciting new sites include Madison Golf Club in NJ, The Yards in Ponte Vedra Beach, FL and 3's Greenville in SC.

Also new this year is the opportunity to participate at one of three different Hike fundraising levels (Premier, Champions and Pro), each level offering unique destinations and experiences.

  • The $5,000 fundraising-minimum Champions Hikes offer overnight stays and a celebratory dinner with fellow Hikers.
  • The $1,500 fundraising minimum Pro Hikes offer exclusive branded swag.
