BallenIsles Country Club General Manager and Chief Executive Officer Ryan Walls and Director of Golf Jeff Fitzherbert played a combined 260 holes of golf on Tuesday, September 6th to raise funds for the First Tee of the Palm Beaches. Walls and Fitzherbert were participating in the 7th Annual 100 Hole Challenge Golf Marathon held at Jupiter Country Club and raised more than $19,000 for the First Tee of the Palm Beaches through BallenIsles’ member donations and pledges. In 2021, the duo raised more than $17,500 for the First Tee of the Palm Beaches, playing a combined 216 holes of golf, and in 2020, they raised $15,000.
For this year’s 100 Hole Challenge, Walls and Fitzherbert played 130 holes each, over eight hours.
“We had a lot of fun this year on a nice sunny day, so we decided to go for our holes played record and completed a total of 130 holes each, for our all-time best of 260 combined. We think we got our summer golf in,” said Walls. “Many thanks to the organizers of this great event and especially those who guide the First Tee of the Palm Beaches, a program both Jeff and I are real believers in, as are our members who provide wonderful support each year. Much appreciation, as well, to the members and staff from Jupiter Country Club for making the course available to us for the day.”
While their 100 Hole Challenge is complete, Walls and Fitzherbert hope to continue to collect donations for the First Tee of the Palm Beaches through the month of September as the fundraiser website is still accepting contributions.
