On September 6th, 2022 Ross Satterwhite and Mark Nesbitt will be back on the course to play 100 holes of golf in support of the Leelanau Historical Society and Museum and its mission. 

The first Golfathon was held in 2006. Looking for ways to raise funds for digital archiving which was in its infancy and the need for a new roof for the museum, which was looming in the future, we came up with the idea to have a two-man golf match consisting of playing 100 holes in one day. An ambitious plan indeed, but doable! The Leland Country Club benevolently granted our request to use the course and the club for the day. We then presented the idea to the LHS Board stating that we would cover any outside costs to play enabling all contributions to go to LHS without any overhead. With the Board’s blessing the idea became a reality and we were off to the races!

The Leelanau Historical Society is dedicated to collecting and preserving Leelanau County’s rich history. All funds raised will support collection care, documentation, exhibit development, educational programs and research projects. We are very grateful for your support and hope you will consider making a donation and joining us in celebration of the 17th Annual Golfathon!

In addition, each donor will be entered into a drawing for a $300 gift certificate to the Leland County Club Pro Shop which will be announced during the event.

Last but not least, a special thanks to the membership and staff of the Leland Country Club for their ongoing generosity and assistance in making this annual event possible and to the members of our community for their enthusiasm!

The donor reception will be held on the deck of the Leland Lodge.
