2017 Karingal Hundred Hole Hike

HHH action shot 

When:  Friday, 20th January, 2017

Where: 13th Beach Golf Links, Barwon Heads

Tee off at 5am.

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 Links at Barwon Heads - no buggies allowed.

"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." 

             - Brett Morrissy, golfer and founder of Hundred Hole Hike Australia.

During the past four years our golfers have helped to raise over $180,000 which has gone directly towards ABI programs and the Eastern Hub.  This unique facility offers 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.
