Established in 2013 the Karingal
Hundred Hole Hike is still the only official event of its kind in
the southern hemisphere and last year broke the world record for
the greatest number of golfers in a Hundred Hole Hike event.
Golfers take on the challenge of playing a full 100 holes of golf
continuously AND walking the magnificent course at
13th Beach Golf Linksat Barwon Heads - no buggies
"The Karingal Hundred Hole
Hike is certainly no walk in the park but it is a great way to
raise money for this really important cause - Acquired Brain
Injury. It is part endurance test, it is part playing golf from
dawn to dusk and also a heap of fun raising money this way, because
that is the most important part. I am hoping to get in training
soon to take on the challenge again in
- Brett Morrissy, golfer and founder of Hundred Hole
During the past three years our
golfers have helped to raise over $100,000 which has gone directly
towards ABI programs and the Eastern Geelong Community
Centre. This unique facility will offer people with an ABI,
their carers and family members, a place where they can spend time
with others and receive important peer and social support.
