June 26 2017

The Golf Marathon for Hope is an event during which community members raise funds to help our community. The event takes place each year in June and has been hosted by Golf Sudbury, the Monte Vista Golf Club and the Idylwylde Golf and Country Club.

Participants spend the day on the course, completing as many holes as possible from dawn to dusk. We are sponsored on a per hole basis and each hole golfed means more funds raised for local charities.

  • $110,000

  • $80,000

  • $30,000

  • 3,000 holes played since 2013


Each committed to raising a minimum of $1,000 and golfing 50 holes.
