What is Gorilla Golf?
This is a golf marathon like no other outing you have EVER experienced!  Our golfers get pledges for each hole they play during this one day event.  Some golfers bring a driver along to help them move as quickly as possible, others buddy up with another golfer and share the ride!  It is about having fun, doing a sport that you love, and raising money for a wonderful cause at the same time! 
We asked one of our Golfers to share their experience:
Gorilla golf is a day on the course like no other.  Last year, we gathered around the registration table at 8am… we filled our thermos’ with coffee and had a muffin and a banana before we started monkeying around on the course.  The carts line up just before 8am… and we were reminded WHY we were there.  Every hole we play at Gorilla Golf supports friends, family and community members battling cancer.  We have secured pledges per hole and flat donations for our golfing efforts.  At 8am sharp, the fun begins!
This is not your traditional golf outing.  Your driver and/or golf partner drops you off right next to your ball at every shot.  If one goes in the woods, or lands on the green beside you, just drop another ball… whose counting!  This is about having fun and doing the sport you love… all in support of an incredible cause.  You will find lots of heckling and many laughs throughout the day.  And while this isn’t intended to be a “serious round of golf”, after 100+ holes, you will surely have some of the best drives of your life.   And on top of this, we all know someone that has been touched by cancer.  This outing gives me a chance to play a game that I love in honor of those I know and those we have lost.  It is a fun way to support those as they go through the darkest time of their life.  
When I say that this was the most crazy and fun golf outing I have ever attended… I mean it!
