Funds raised will go to support the Ottawa Hospital Foundation’s patient care programs for the adult cystic fibrosis clinic and the Royal Ottawa Foundation for Mental Health to help advance the treatment of mental illness.

The 100 Holes of Hope is a marathon in which 36 golfers attempt to play 100 holes in one day. Every player gets his or her own power cart. There will be 18 twosomes teeing off in a shotgun format. Based on the 2013 tournament, organizers say it will take approximately 11 hours to complete.

The golfers are asked to raise funds through pledges or sponsorships. The minimum pledge/sponsorship is $1,250 for one player or $2,000 per twosome.

Registration and breakfast starts at 6 a.m. The shotgun start happens at 7:15 a.m.

The format will feature one two-person team per hole. The idea is to play hurry-up golf, so the players can hit away when ready.

Three-foot gimmies will be given in order to help speed up play and the golfers are to play two balls each on holes No. 2 and No. 16 so that each round consists of 20 holes.

Loch March Golf and Country Club is an exclusively public facility. There are five sets of tee boxes measuring 6,932 yards from the tips to 4,668 yards from the front tees.
