Mike Mazzaferri, the Sierra Sage Golf Course head professional and general manager, is attempting to play 100 holes of golf in one day as he participates in this year’s Northern California PGA Chapter’s 100 Holes Challenge today.
This challenge was established by local PGA professionals through the Northern California PGA Foundation, in order to raise money for local community programs and charities.
“We raised more than $5,000 last year and this time we are shooting for more than $7,500,” Mazzaferri said. “I’m calling on golfers and golf fans this year to pledge their support as we strive to reach a goal of $100,000 for the Northern California PGA Foundation and their charities.”
The local charity chosen by Mazzaferri’s all-day golf-a-thon is the Sierra Sage Men’s Golf Club Charity Fund, which provides college scholarships and support to junior and high golf school programs. In the past three years, Mazzaferri has raised more than $22,000 through the 100-holes program.
“I really need and appreciate your support. I assure you, your pledge will go a long way in our efforts to benefit the many local community programs and charitable organizations supported by the NCPGA Foundation and our own Sierra Sage Men’s Golf Club,” Mazzaferri said.
